How It Works:

  • The engine is fired up
  • The engine provides power to the fan
  • The fan can be controlled by the throttle trigger
  • The fan pulls air in through the side of the housing and directs it out the front to the blower through the tubes

 Maintenance Tips:

  • Keep up with regular maintenance
  • Keep the air filter clean, as blowers tend to accumulate dirt much faster than other types of equipment due to their nature.
  • General Maintenance
