        The HKD KLIK manual hydrant is a game changer for snowmakers. In a 12-hour snowmaking window, HKD KLIK manual hydrants can boost snowmaking production by as much as 90%, when compared to using traditional hydrants and hoses, with fixed HKD towers. This significant improvement is achieved by eliminating the time consuming step of hooking up, and unhooking, air and water hoses at each hydrant.

            from HKD Snowmakers / Added

            The HKD Volt is the "airless" low energy workhorse in our tower gun line up. The Volt is capable of four water flows and uses internal mix nucleators, powered by a 7.5 HP (5 kW) compressor. The Volt is designed to cover your most critical, early opening terrain where hill air is not an option. Like the SV10, the Volt incorporates our S-valve technology, allowing the Volt to perform optimally in the widest range of temperatures.

              The Turbo Carriage is galvanized and has three wheels and a tow bar for flexible transport. It can also be moved using its lift hooks and the blade of a snowcat. The Turbo Carriage is equipped with 3 extendable jacks for safe leveling and stability during snow production. The HKD Turbo is the workhorse in our fan line up. The Turbo is engineered for simplicity and efficiency and is capable of water flow up to 250 GPM with projection exceeding 225 feet. Its unique central nozzle design provides a smooth performance curve with infinite water flow and snow quality settings. The Turbo is big production snowmaking at its best.
