Cleaning up turf debris can be a time-consuming task made even more challenging when so many are working with smaller crews. Golf course superintendents and sports turf managers looking to reduce the amount of work time spent on debris management can hitch on to the new Turfco Torrent 2 PTO Debris Blower.
By substituting on-board engine power with tractor-mounted PTO hydraulic power, the Torrent 2 PTO Blower weighs in at under 340 pounds — about 150 pounds lighter than its self-powered sibling —making it a lightweight, agile turf performer that’s also quiet, stingy on fuel consumption and easy to maintain.
“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,” Turfco Manufacturing EVP Scott Kinkead said.
Connect the PTO version to a standard turf tractor — minimum 20 horsepower engine to run the blower hydraulics — and hit the turf. The supplied handheld controller enables operators to quickly change nozzle direction 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, making sure operators are as productive as possible. You can preset the optimal degree angle for the debris you’re blowing, from grass clippings to leaves or aeration cores, saving up to two hours per day.
Turfco encourages customers to demo the Torrent 2 PTO Debris Blower – as well as their other products – through an authorized dealer or via an interactive online demonstration.
