That is quite the blower, Pilgrim........

What's the back story about it? (Where you found it, brand, model, etc?_)

It is an interesting color, sort of a faded Tiffany blue as Mrs. Bear would say, any of you who have ever bought your sweetie something from Tiffany's will recognize the color.

Don't tell me Tiffany's is in the jewelry AND the 3 point blower business...now that is diversification.

Those are really very handy and I keep my eyes peeled for one, but everything I run across is too heavy, too large for my 1025r...but I keep a looking.....

Any idea what that weighs and what PTO horsepower it likes?

SB

Its this one...I think with the 36" fan..


Its right at my limit of 30 hp.

I use an Over run clutch to protect my pto Brake. Gotta start it up at idle. Sometimes give the pto a bump to get it rolling then engage again. ....yes to protect the pto clutch.

Once its rolling ...everything fly's...it even sucks acorns in the intake and spits them a long ways.

What once took hours of walking with the back pack blower takes mere minutes and my 1/2 mile driveway is spotless.

I am gonna half to buy some gravel......you don't have to run full throttle:banghead:

Slight learning curve but by far my best investment yet.

They make a smaller unit with like a 27" fan that would fit any compact scut..and be more than fine.

These were used in Filbert orchards in my area...this particular one was used on a golf course....probly has a gazillion hours on it but has new bearings & I put in a new u joint. Paid $750.....retail new is crazy like 4K ish.

I highly recomend any brand if leaves are an issue and you just need to move them vs collect them.

In a few years after blowing all those acorns into the brush, you could have quite an oak tree hedge lined driveway. :lolol:

Pretty nice attachment, but is there any concern your brush pile fire may get a little out of control backed up against the woods like that?
