BT40C Blower Truck

BT40C Blower Truck


With a Peterson BT40C Blower Truck, you can tackle a wider range of assignments. Our high capacity delivery system handles larger erosion control and commercial landscape projects. Reduced set-up and clean-up time produces a faster turn around, resulting in more deliveries and more cubic yards each day. Extra daily loads make a significant difference to your bottom line.

Bridging that occurs with a V-shaped hopper is eliminated. Our system does not leak like a conveyor, reducing clean-up time after completing installation of materials.

The large footprint feeder, combined with the high-capacity tri-lobe blower, provides increased airflow for farther and faster delivery. Larger diameter hoses provide added protection against clogging. These features enable you to be more productive and deliver a wider range of materials each day.

The side-opening end gate on Peterson BT40C Blower Truck provides safe and easy access to the feed system. An optional grass seeder and fertilizer system for planting or erosion control projects extends your service offerings.

The rear-mounted hose storage reel eases hose loading, saving time and energy. The power reel option makes handling the hose easy.

Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in the developing of delivery and processing equipment that turns low-grade organic materials into high value products.
