The Smi Super PoleCat Snowmaker and Snowtower are SMI’s big throw simple nozzle fan snowmaking products that excel in all temperature conditions. The Super PoleCat is offered with a piston or vane compressor or hill air feed, in manual or automatic, and in a variety of custom tower and carriage mounts.

The Super PoleCat uses a 20HP (15 kW) or 25HP (18 kW) fan for a big throw and 30 nozzles that you can customize to achieve water flows specific to your climate. These 30 nozzles are nucleated with a single central six jet nucleator nozzle. Water adjustment is easy with four heated self draining valves.

The PoleCat is simple to operate and maintain and an excellent all around performer for all conditions.
