    I'd tell you to do a search, but this isn't piss site... They're all worthless. The only truck mounted blower I've seen that's worth a dang is Jerre's.

    Sno I'm afraid that you're going to be disappointed when you see what's available. I considered buying one for doing cell sites because that would be ideal but all I could find were 30hp units that didn't look like they'd hold up to any sort of commercial use.

    Unimog or a jcb fastrac are much better options but not even close to cheap. Everything made for a normal pickup is a POS.

    It would be for a pick-up at this time.
    I would like a tractor or a unimog but that is a couple of years off if I go in that direction.

    I the responses are kind of what I expected.
    Thanks,
    I was think about using one for residential.
    I don't have any $$$ squirreled away for a tractor and blower set up, (yet)


    I did like how this one looked.

    If your plan holds, you'll be needing a blower.

    Interesting, any info on what kind of drive it is?

    Why aren't pics allowed in the signature line?

    I'm not sure my response to the tex in red would be welcomed.
    I have no idea who makes that one?

    Plans, My wife has moved them up,
    She wants the business to be up and running by 2013 in Montana.
    2012 is going to be a busy year if this is going to happen so quickly.
    That blower sure would spread out all that poop.

    The blower in that vid is a Lorenz 734 I think. The model number might of changed to 738 on the newwer ones.

    I have a Lorenz 734, from 1995, and it looks just like that, and i can attest they hold up really well, mine looks great for 15 years old.

    He definately has a hydro drive system on it, it would be nice to know how much flow and actual hydraulic HP he has going to it. That blower is rated for 100hp, so it will need a lot of power to run it nicely.

    From reading the comments, it's hydraulically driven off the engine, like the old school fisher plow setups with the clutch pump. Doesn't sound like it moves much snow at all as he says he's looking for an aux motor, and he has to rev the truck way up to move and snow and ride the clutch so the truck moves slowly enough.

    They give flow rates and they have pumps.

    It looks like the make a few different models.

    What hp/ rpm is required to run the avg unit, for thoes who use tractors.

    and at what speed do you clear, let's say 3-4 " at?

    A 7' single auger blower should be no less than 50 PTO hp. And if you think that heavy or wet snow is in the cards then more hp for sure. More hp will reduce bogging, allowing faster mph. But to be honest I've never measured mph to see what it actually is for a given depth vs hp vs width.

    Seems like even this setup was low on HP for any decent travel speed.

    Plus the loss of HP from using hydraulics.

    my idea was to mount a 4cyl engine to a skid and put that in the bed of the truck for a power unit.
    kind of like what/like the parking lot vac units.

    and have the blower mounted to the back.

    its been a long planing.and a bit longer to assemble/gather up all of the parts.

    I believe that's a 100hp power pack in the box, running the hydraulic pump. The loss of hp converting to hydraulic is tremoundous.

    ^ yes and no.

    id want to use a 200hp + 4 cyl automotive engine with a 3 speed auto.....

    ....
    imhao..
    The engine in that set up was insufficient to run the pump.

    but without the numbers we don't know what he was attempting ...

    a chart art to help with your conversions
