Finn 5 Series Bark Blower
The new BB 5-Series Bark & Mulch Blower was designed with
simplicity and reliability in mind for landscape and erosion
control contractors. Its simplified control system and
streamlined engineering make it a dependable workhorse
for bark, mulch, compost and soil blend applications.
This mid-size bark and mulch blower is straightforward
to operate, maintain and troubleshoot, leading to vital
uptime and optimal productivity. Products can be applied
on virtually any terrain, even in wet conditions, and the BB
5-Series can be especially profitable when accessing hardto-reach
Residential and commercial landscape bed maintenance,
filling/installing sediment control filter socks, playground
safety surface installation and renewal, topdressing turf,
indoor courtyard gardens, and other applications that
require precise placement of bulk materials.
Saving Time & Labor & Materials = Profitability
Save labor by avoiding the manual work of spreading
material using wheelbarrows and rakes. Two workers alone
can apply 15 cubic yards of mulch per hour with the BB
5-Series, depending on job conditions and material. This
means that you can make more money by doing more jobs in
a day and putting your now extra laborers who were moving
product with wheelbarrows and rakes to work for you on
more profitable projects! Additionally, you can save as
much as 25% in product due to the ability to blow a smooth,
even mulch layer, rather than the thick and thin irregular
application that happens when product is spread manually.
