Poor mans leaf blower

Recommended Posts

This is an old exhaust blower we had in storage at work that I mounted on my 7016. I removed the 3 phase electric motor and made a shaft with pillow block bearings to locate the impeller. I run it off the bevel gearbox pto and have it overdriven by running the small driven pulley. This thing really spins. I have a piece of 2"i.d. reciever welded to the rear of my tractor to accept any common 2" reciever accessory. That is how I mount the blower.

Sure have. Thing works great. It really isn't any bigger than a walk behind blower. When I really crank up the rpm's on the 16hp Briggs, it will probably blow my dog across the yard. (maybe thats a stretch)

All the 7000 series that I have seen the filter was between the BGB and hydrostst. I think they but the filters on the side in the 7100 series later on as well. My 917H has it in between the BGB and Hydrostat.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
