Peterson BTS50 Stand-Alone Blower Unit

Overview

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.
