The feed system on a pneumatic blower truck includes all the mechanics that move the material toward and into the blower and discharge system. There are different types of designs and mechanics. Peterson blower trucks and trailers use a gravity feed system for it’s efficiency, safety, and lower wear and maintenance on parts.
Peterson’s feed system uses the walking floor with optional power sweep to move material from the straight-walled box toward the feeder. The tines fluff and break up material while the auger with devil’s tails move the material toward the feeder while breaking up any clumps. Peterson’s feed system is uniquely designed to prevent bridging, keep operators safe, and efficient material handling.
