Forage Blower

Forage Blower – 1060

High Velocity. High Volume. High Performance!

Art’s Way Miller Pro Forage Blower fills the tallest silos with lower power requirements and a paddle design that generates a powerful air stream. The large hopper increases capacity.

Two models available for maximizing tractor HP.
  • 540 RPM
  • 1000 RPM
Maximum capacity auger action
  • Auger trough distributor moves the flow of material into the fan housing faster.
  • Large transition opening allows a smoother flow of material into the fan.
  • Large hopper area increase blower capacity and allows easy forage box positioning.
  • 12 in. diameter auger feeds forage into the fan at 30 degree angle. Inserts material into the air stream at nearly the same plane as rotation for greater efficiency.
  • Flexible wind guards on hopper sides keep cleanup to a minimum.
  • Auger clutch handle operable from front, side and read of blower.
  • Water hose connection directs nozzle at auger end. A second inlet is positioned through the blower band.
  • Kevlar drive belts last longer and are less susceptible to stretching.
  • Transport wheels are equipped with tapered roller bearings.
High power blower
  • Blower outlet easily removable for quick inspection and maintenance, without loosening housing band.
  • 60 inch diameter impeller housing with heavy eight-paddle fan and rotating back plate that provides non-stop filling and virtually eliminates plugging. Paddles made from 40/50 carbon steel resist wear and corrosion.
  • Sharpened adjustable shear bar keeps paddle tips clean. Prevents hair-pinning, carry-over and power loss. All material goes up the pipe.
  • Reversible housing band.
Power Paddle design
Engineering tests show that 35 degree paddle angle generates a greater air stream, moving more material with less power.
Standard features
  • Large hopper intake area
  • Auger trough distributor
  • Large transition opening
  • Heavy 8-paddle fan with power paddle design
  • Sharpened shear bar
  • Heavy PTO drive line
Optional 1000 RPM Blower

Now available for use with larger HP tractors with 1000 RPM PTO shafts.Requires minimum 140 PTO HP tractor.
