Now that leaf season is upon us I shot a couple quick videos..also we had some carnage also few weeks ago_Our Steiner blower PB100 the impeller exploded , this is the second time this happened in 25yrs..the original lasted about 8 yrs and the second about 17yrs, bearings were still original.In all honesty that blower probably had 4000 plus hours on it . chose to buy a clean low hour used blower from Tony at Round out engine, also called A2E equipment in leu of fixing it...here's a recent video, pics to follow of carnage.

Yes it does, we've been run steiner tractor with those blowers 25 years now every fall we put a few hundred hours on them blowing leaves.I found that turning down the governor slightly greatly extends my belt life without a very noticeable difference in performance. .

Awsome machine!

I've seen the city with Kubota tractors equiped with that kind of blower. Makes me wanna steal one. I even know a girl that uses one at the city. Could talk her into stealing one for me.
