Peco vac "got it home"

Recommended Posts

ehertzfeld
I'm looking at getting a Peco vac system. I want to download an owners manual for it. Dose any one know the model number to these? Well I got my Peco vac system. I hooked it up and gave her a try yesterday. I must say I'm pretty impressed with the way it works. Emptying the bag is no picnic, but I can mow my whole yard and only have to empty it at the end. I was a bit nervous that the 12hp would run out of power, with the 42inch deck, the Peco, and powering the hydro trans, but it did very well at 3/4 throttle.

Hi fellows, Do these blowers just run all the time? Or is there a PTO engage/disengage? Maybe it doesn't matter starting up with the blower load? Thanks! Matt

That Peco setup appears to have been made for an RBT with cone-clutch, which would engage the deck and vac at the same time...

Kent, you are right, it was made for a cone clutch. I converted this B112 to hydro, so it has one now. Here are a few more pictures of it off the tractor.









Not sure if these are what you wanted, but it's still off the tractor, so if you want more, just ask!;):D

Thanks! That is exactly what I wanted. I was curious what they used for a blower wheel. Very interesting. The only other I have seen the inside of was much newer one that used a 5-blade fan of some polymer or other. This looks like two paddles clamped to the shaft. Are they aluminum do you think? Also curious as to approximate rpms they spin that at? Close to engine rpm I would think by the size of the pulley? Thanks again for the pics sm01 Matt

OK, just a couple more questions, then I will leave you alone. Could you tell me approximate diameter of the blower and approximate width of the housing? Thanks!
