BTS50 Stand-Alone Blower Unit

BTS50 Stand-Alone Blower Unit


With a Peterson BTS50 Stand-Alone Blower Unit, you can tackle an even wider range of projects, gain productivity, and boost your profitability.

The BTS50 is available in two models, the standard BTS50 is powered by a CAT C7.1 Tier IV engine with 225 hp (167 kW), or the BTS50+, with a CAT 9.3B Tier IV engine with 335 hp (250 kW) for heavy-duty applications such as delivering light aggregate materials.

With the stand-alone power plant, the BTS50 allows you to blow material while moving the truck, which is ideal for jobs that require lots of repositioning. The BTS50’s blower unit is rated at 15 psi (1.03 bar) for typical applications of mulch or compost materials. The BTS50+ has a 20 psi (1.38 bar) blower unit, and is specifically designed for tough-to-blow applications.

The BTS50 is configured with an aluminum walking floor, or an optional stainless steel version with replaceable interior wear liners for abrasive applications. 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 BTS50 provides safe and easy access to the feed system. An optional grass seeder and fertilizer system (Air Stream Injection System) for planting or erosion control projects extends your service offerings.
