PTO squirrel cage leaf blower

Recommended Posts

buddy said he saw a furnace squirrel cage setup on the front of a garden tractor. i wonder if you could make one up on a simplicty/Allis useing a love joy coupler off the crankshaft or a snowblower hitch W/belt setup. good idea i guess if you could get the correct speed.

Looks like a New Holland. Great idea:p I have one of those blowers in my garage positioned above the attic door for smoke/fume evacuation. Works like a charm. Why didn't I think of that...

I have a small one in the rafters above the wood stove, to move warm air to the other end of the building. Also insulated the rafters in such a manner to direct the heat back down at the other end :D:D I also have a larger portable one that I use wherever for moving cool air in the summer, or removing smoke or fumes as necessary. I guess I could call that one an "extra" to try it with. :O:O

Perry, I bet you could easily do a front mount version with a Love Joy. Set it up on a dozer hitch, and simply lift into position to have the lovejoy connect. Your lift could be your engagement, as long as you engage and disengage while the engine is off. A blower hitch would be nicer yet...and it would be very easy to maneuver up front.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
