Turfco released the Turfco Torrent 2 PTO Debris Blower.

By substituting on-board engine power with tractor-mounted power-takeoff (PTO) hydraulic power, the Torrent 2 PTO Blower weighs in at less than 340 pounds. That makes it a lightweight, agile turf performer that’s also quiet, low on fuel consumption and easy to maintain, according to the company.

“The new PTO-version of our well-received, self-powered Torrent 2 Blower features all of the power, ease of use and time-saving virtues of the original model, with great maneuverability and, of course, less noise and no engine maintenance requirements,” said Scott Kinkead, executive vice president of Minneapolis-based Turfco Manufacturing.

Superintendents can connect the PTO version to a standard turf tractor — a minimum of a 20-hp engine is required to run the blower hydraulics — and hit the turf. The supplied handheld controller enables operators to change nozzle direction fast and on the fly, without having to slow down and wait for the nozzle to swivel around.

For even greater productivity, Turfco’s optional patented MagnaPoint technology eliminates guesswork. Users can preset the optimal degree angle for the debris you’re blowing, whether its grass clippings, leaves or aeration cores, saving up to two hours per day.

Getting the angle correct and holding to it is critical to maximizing the efficient use of the blower. Even a seemingly slight 15-degree “miss” on angle direction will result in a large percentage loss of efficiency.
