    Just like the title says, I'm looking to purchase a skid steer blower. Must be at least 6' in size. It has to be in good shape and ready to work.

    My brothers are driving to Detroit tomorrow so if you're located anywhere along I-94 or I-90 I'd like to see what you have.

    Cash paid

    Please PM

    How do you know which GPM to buy? Do you have to add more fluid to the machine when you hook it up?

    Why would you have to add fluid?

    The fluid circulates through the hydraulic system so I won't have to add anything. In the past I've run a sweeper, backhoe and auger without any problems. I'm sure adding a blower will be fine.

    Well you should really know what the output of your machine is or else you will ruin the hydro pump.

    I've had no oil issues or pump capability with my blower.

    You could buy my blower and then sell it to Camden or whoever.

    High flow will have bigger fittings on the front of the machine. I believe high flow lines on attachments are 5/8" vs 3/4" for std flow.
    Call the mfg who makes your machine and ask them the output.

    This is a Cat with high flow and extra pressure.

    I found one near Mpls that I'm going to get tomorrow assuming the guy can produce the chute controls. He sold his skid and didn't take the wiring harness off!

    Thats allot better then having your machine stolen with it. The factory controller on mine is worth $600 from FFC/Paladin/Swepsterbut I was going to get a friend to build me one for allot less.
