The general idea of a Leaf blower is simple. A high-speed fan is surrounded by a cover. Tubes are connected to the side of the fan to focus the air current (up to around 200 miles per hour in some units) in the direction you want to move the leaves. There are two main types of leaf blowers.
- Blowers perform the single, simple function of blowing material.
The Leaf Blowers and Leaf Vacuums that we sell here at Everything Attachments are commercial grade leaf blowers made by AgriMetal which is based out of Canada. We carry leaf blower sizes from walk behind blowers, Gas powered leaf blowers which can be pulled by a four wheeler, riding lawn mowers, and small tractors. Also in this section, you will find PTO driven blowers that will require you to have at least 16 PTO hp on you tractor to run the smallest PTO driven Leaf Blower, and up to 45 PTO hp to power the largest leaf blower we sell.
These Leaf and Debris Blowers produce so much force that if you walk within 5 ft. of the blower air stream, they will literally take your feet out from under you! Certain models will blow dry leafs well over 30 ft., and they will blow wet leafs 20 ft. The 3 point hitch blowers have an optional chute that can be raised or lowered with a cable (or with hydraulics) while seated on your tractor. This chute will divert air to the left or right of your tractor.
When the chute is raised to the most powerful position, it will blow leaves to your left. If you change to blow leaves to the right, the chute inverts the air force 180 degrees and blows leaves from the right while still retaining 90% of the Leaf Blowers force all while not having to turn your tractor around.
The PTO driven leaf blowers will ship completely assembled except for the chute which takes around five minutes to install. The PTO shaft and shear bolt will also need to be installed on the Agrimetal Leaf blower. This usually takes 10 minutes and a small adjustable wrench. It will ship on a large wooden pallet, and we recommend it ship to the closest terminal or business with a loading dock or business with a good fork lift.
We also have the Agrimetal Sweeper which is gas powered pull type, that will leave your yard clean of debris, as well as the Gigantic Vacuums that are primarily used for golf courses to maintain fairways and greens. Ranging up to $15,000 dollars, these vacuums hold an enormous amount of debris. These are one of a very few items that will not be able to ship on a normal transfer truck. These will ship on an open carrier truck (flat bed semi-trailer). You will have to have a loading dock to receive this item simply because of the size to unload these large vacuum models.
We also have walk behind leaf blower models as well as garden tractor hitch style commercial leaf blowers. Here at Everything Attachments, we believe in selling only the most durable commercial leaf blowers to keep your landscape leaf and debris free for all seasons.
