The HKD Diablo is the workhorse in our fan line up. The Diablo is engineered for simplicity and efficiency and is capable of water flow up to 250 GPM with projection exceeding 225 feet. The Diablo employs our Constant Cure Technology (CCT) unlike any other fan gun on the market.  The unique central nozzle design provides a smooth performance curve with infinite water flow and snow quality settings vs. the step functions of all other fan technology.  This maximizes snow production in all temperatures. The Diablo is big production snowmaking at its best.

The Diablo Fan is available in three configurations: manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic when paired with the Minion Hydrant actuator and a network connection.

The Diablo Fan design is modular and interchangeable between our three styles of supports: the articulating boom (Raptor), fixed tower with workbasket, and the carriage.

The Diablo 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 Diablo Carriage is equipped with 3 extendable jacks for safe leveling and stability during snow production.

The Raptor Tower with its galvanized articulating boom transforms the Diablo fan into a highly productive, easy to use tower design. The Raptor blends the warm weather performance and throw of a traditional fixed fan tower, with the safety and convenience of a carriage-mounted fan. The Raptor's electric jack raises the fan gun from ground level to a height of twenty feet in ninety seconds. At this elevation, the Raptor will produce 60% more snow, at a given temperature, as compared to a carriage mounted fan gun. The Raptor's oscillator is programmable and capable of broadcasting snow with 300° of rotation. The Raptor is high performance and safety wrapped into one.

The HKD Diablo Tower is galvanized, easy to rotate and has 12" wide ladder rungs for safer climbing. The workbasket is fully enclosed with a railing and its access door can be closed to create a safer working environment. The control panel and compressor are conveniently located at the bottom of the tower and within reach of the snowmaker to prevent unnecessary climbing.
