Very Portable! The impeller and engine are positioned at the top of a hydraulic arm which is easily lowered for machine movement, storage or servicing.
— Does the Tow & Blow require ongoing service and maintenance? —
The only real maintenance required is an oil change every 100 hours and a look over the engine.
— How many hectares does one machine protect? —
One machine can protect up to 5 hectares of land depending on the topography of the property.
— Does the Tow & Blow cause noise pollution? —
The Tow & Blow is nearly inaudible at 300m. It is tested by Acoustics experts at between 45 and 50 dBA at 300 metres.
— How does the Tow & Blow reach above the inversion layer? —
The fan is around 8 m high. Because the machine has a shroud around the fan, this acts like a vortex and pulls warm air from around 12-15 metres, which is above the inversion layer.
