Olympia IceBear Electric

Battery Powered Ice Resurfacer

The Olympia ICEBEAR® Battery Ice Resurfacer has been a proven leader since it's inception in the European market in 1984. In late 2004 Olympia purchased the IceBear line of ice resurfacers and performed a complete redesign using the best technologies that both companies had to offer. Since its redesign there have been hundreds of IceBears sold throughout Olympia's world wide dealer network.

The IceBear Battery

The advances in the Olympia IceBear start with the Stainless-Steel Chassis with Solid State Motor Controllers with electric drive motors located at each wheel. The hydraulic systems use Stainless-Steel hydraulic piping and very few hydraulic hoses. The piping is packaged neatly under the snow bin.

The true all-wheel drive system is automatic, with no driver intervention. Four independent electrically driven wheel-hub motors increase traction. With a remarkable 14' turning radius.


The ICEBEAR® Electric is simple to use, simple to recharge, simple to maintain and is simply the best battery powered ice resurfacer in the world. From the speed related flood water system to the automatic water shut off filling stations, water usage will be greatly reduced in your facility. The wash water system operates with the touch of one button, if the wash water tank runs low on water the system automatically turns off to protect the systems components from damage. Designed with ease of operation in mind the ICEBEAR® Electric simplified operational controls are conveniently located within reach, allowing the operator to make precise blade adjustments during the cut. With our unique design we are afforded the lowest snow bin dump height on a full-size ice resurfacer at only 8'-7" inches in the fully open position. The turning radius is a remarkable 12.83' allowing the IceBear to cut ice within the 30' faceoff circle. The water and snow capacity will allow for back to back cuts on a standard NHL size sheet of ice and will easily handle an Olympic size sheet of ice.


The chassis and snow bin are constructed from Stainless-Steel surrounded with a fiberglass body which helps to greatly reduce the possibility of corrosion, due to battery charging and the harsh working environment within ice arenas, while still providing a sleek design. The sleek body was designed with the advertiser in mind. The ice making conditioner and water tanks are constructed of Stainless-Steel. The hydraulic systems use Stainless-Steel hydraulic piping and hydraulic hose only at the flex points, greatly reducing long term repair cost.

Drive Train

The drive train is a quad set of EnerSys batteries with square tube technology for a true deep cycle. Each of the wheels is driven by one of four independent brushless AC wheel motors providing quiet, cost efficient and pollution free operation. Each motor has its own independent solid-state motor controllers with a self-diagnostic trouble shooting code system which is easily viewed by a single flashing light or an icon at the operator’s station.
