Three belt blower, can you even give them away?

Recommended Posts

I've seen three belt blowers on eBay and in the classified ads, even for really cheap prices they seem to just sit. In order to test the theory that you can't even give them away, I will give free of charge my three belt blower to the first person who comes to get it. I'll even split travel distance in excess of 100 miles (up to a distance of 100 miles travel on my part) in order to meet anyone who lives in excess of 100 miles away from me. In other words if you live 300 miles away I'll go 100 miles and you go 200 miles and we meet somewhere. Any takers?

I used the much maligned 3 belt blower on my B-10 for many years [ I still have both] and I never had a problem with it. The trick that worked for me was mounting it on the tractor and run it for a few minutes then grab the wrenches and tighten the belts like banjo strings. The other thing I learned was if the blower clogged grab the key and shut 'er down. By the time you try to get off the tractor and release the PTO lever you had burned a belt. I can't understand where these got such a bad reputation as I rarely had problems moving snow.

I agree about giving away the 3 belt blowers.I have been trying to give 2 complete units away for a while and have had very little interest. Looks like I will soon take the hitches off and junk the rest.Hate to junk good units. Bob

If you wern't 2-1/2 hours away, I'd gladly take one off your hands. Doug
