Most of the silage blowers had a band that could be rotated around so that the discharge could be aimed in any direction. Make sure that the grooves in the band are clean of rust and dirt so the band will fit close to the paddles. The old rule is take a nickel and pass a dime. The paddles are adjustable where they are bolted on the wheel. Adjust them to make up for wear to clear the drum band by about the thickness of a dime. A few thousands of an inch makes a big difference in how the blower works. Ed

I have had a "Agri Fab" leaf blower and it has been one of my best purchases. At that time they made 2 or 3 sizes and I bought the largest - it needs 40 to 45 HP - but it clears leaves, pine needled, acorns, pine cones, and other junk. It has cut days off the fall clean up for me and I couldn't get along without it. I know it wasn't cheap but I would buy another if I needed one. I also use an 8 HP walk behind blower as well as a couple of back pack / hand carried blowers.

Where are you located at? I took the dogs a walk in the woods yesterday at the girlfriends father's house and there is one sitting out in the woods that is pto powered and it looked salvageable. This is in Pike County, (Southern)Ohio. I could ask him if you are fairly close. Fred OH

I used to have an AGI METAL. These costed around 4000.00 about 10 years ago. I think the impeller was about 38". Used to be able to blow dry leaves 50' in one pass. This blower will knock your feet from under you. They are manufactured in Canada.

I have seen new ones advertised for around $900. I built one out of an old silage blower and it will really blow leaves. Around this area most people no longer have livestock so no one fills silo anymore. The old blowers can be bought pretty cheap. I can't post a picture of it because my computer is smarter than I am. I run it at 540 PTO RPM and drive slow. Does a good job.

I passed up one at an auction several years ago - I think that it was a Jacobson - it sold for $280 and I've kicked myself every Fall ever since. The guy had a big hobby farm with a long tree lined drive, but he was moving to a smaller place. As another guy has already mentioned, they are used a lot at golf courses. I've been watching for another used one since then but they don't seem to come on the market very often. I priced a new one - an AgriMetal, I believe, 24" diameter wheel, rear PTO drive with 3 point mount - $2,500!! Guess that I'll continue watching the classified ads!!

I have a Jacobs that I bought from a golf course for $200. I use it with my Long 560 tractor to clear my yard of leaves in the late fall after all have fallen. It works great as I have a large yard and many trees. To be really effective with one pass, I have to run the tractor in 1st gear, low range at about 1200 RPM. No maintenance, just keep it greased. Have no idea what a new one cost.

What you are looking for is called a "debris blower" by the industry. An internet search will find you lots of manufacturers.
