Blowing with a sucker?

Recommended Posts


Anyone ever use a PTO-powered vacuum collector to dispense instead of collecting? Say, if I had a very loose, finely-grained mulch, like finely shredded bark mulch. It would be nice to be able to pull it to the bed in a cart and then blow it out.

They move a lot of air...if you had a tapered hose, to get some increased air speed, I'm sure you could push mulch around.

I have seen them setup with no cart, and used as a rear moutned leaf blower. Not quite as effective as the purpose built blower units, but I guess it's more seat time. Anything is worth a try, once.

I was actually also going to use it the way you describe on the slope in my back yard, since I wouldn't feel particularly comfortable pulling a cart on it. I was just going to discharge the leaves downhill and then pick them up on the flat at the bottom.

      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!😁
