 3 pt / Blower

Hello everyone ,
I saw something differant today, It looked strange , but thinking about it , there must be several good uses for it.
On a compact JD , mounted on the 3 point , a large furnace squirl cage blower !!! It is shooting off to the left side of the tractor. The only use that I can see in this area would be for blowing leaves.
Oh , I didn`t mention , the blower is powered by the tractor pto.
Differant subject ,or question , Where`s the info for HOW TO post pics ?? Thanks , Have a good Spring , Beetle Bailey

The blower could be used for a variety of things. Hmmm....

Anyway the pics are pretty simple. Got to "my profile" and there is a link to "modify or add photos to your album."

Did it look old or new? I've saw pictures of fans like that with some spray nozzles in the air stream to fog fruit trees for worms and bugs, probably not legal anymore. Frank.

They are fairly common and have been around for years now.

They are mostly used for dealing with leaves on large properties. Some golf courses use them to just blow the leaves out into the roughs rather than trying to gather them up. We use to speed the gathering of leaves, we blow the leaves into rows and then just run over the rows with a vacuum trailer.

They are also used to speed up the drying of large areas, under the right conditions you can either create a lot of evapouration, or just plain blow the water off the area. I have seen them used to dry tees and greens during tournaments.

Best of luck.
