Harper straw blowers process small square bales of straw quickly and efficiently. The heart of the straw blower is a large rotor with 32 free swinging knives. The rotating bale tub insures that straw is cut into fine material and the blower fan disperses the material for excellent straw mulch coverage. The Harper SB1300 uses a 13 horsepower Honda engine to power the straw blower.
Harper straw blowers process bales quickly and provide great coverage with even distribution and no clumping. Coverage rates are approximately 1,000 square feet per bale, and processing time ranges from 1 to 2 bales per minute with the PTO and small gas powered models. These units can fit easily in the bed of a pickup truck, or on a utility trailer. The heart of the bale processor is a rotor with 32 knives. The bale tub rotates evenly while the knives quickly cut and blow the material out.
Note: This unit must be ordered with either a Directional Spout (Item No. 905005) or a Hose Adaptor (Item No. 910164) and Hose Kit (Item No. 900254).
