Large blower value?
« on: January 31, 2021, 04:38:25 PM »
Bought a planer and this was used on it. Plan to send it down the road but not sure how to price. Has a 15" opening, used to blow chip and sawdust in trucks? Will list here once I find a price for it.

Industrial blower housings are not cheap at all and usually arent ever unbolted until theyre scrap so there isnt a cheap supply out there. 



There is also a boom is rising prices and stuff selling at outrageous asks.  If it spins and appears to be serviceable or atleast able to be rehabed with bearings, id start high and come down.  $1500 is where id laugh at it but lately stuff at my 'youve got to be kidding me' threshold has been selling.  And my jaw keeps dropping but a fool and his money i guess.


I dont think you should take less than $300 but i bet youll be able to get a grand.  The shaft looks pretty clean.  Ive had to change outnanlot of rooftop bearings on much much worse looking shafts.  If you paint it up itll be an easier sell.  Industrial light machine gray.  


Calling to have one installed from a hvac contractor will give you a heart attack.

Thanks Mike. The shaft and I think blower blades are stainless so they should look good. Guy had a 5hp with slow pulleys on it so it came off.

If its a stainless shaft then thats a top notch unit.  S&W prob had a hundred blowers on the roof and i never saw a SS.  A lot of grief to prep a rusted shaft for bearing change.

Wow, that must have been a short pipe run, that blower needs a good bit more than 5 hp to get the right velocity and volume out of it.

For ventilation only that size housing ballpark would have a 5 to 7 horse 3ph electric on it.  I never lugged a 10 up the ladder. 

Probably wants a 20horse gas to hit the front of a 53' the long way.

To be honest I'd want it if you put it on FF for sale in 2 months.  Sawmillexchange has blowers for sale usually, check on there (or sell on there, she's easy to work with).  I don't think it would be a problem moving that quickly.

I know you'll be fabbing one up sometime Mike :D. Those are backward inclined air handlers, a radial material handling blower is a different kind of power hog. I chopped and rewelded an air handler into a radial blower for my mill and needed to know some of the how to's;

I put it on there earlier today as I said I would. Put it there for 900 cash.

The way it was belted my 2hp 6" blower moves more air.

That is a very fair price.  It should go fast.  Maybe let the sawing section guys know, maybe you already did.  
Are you sure you don't need a blower for the planer?

No I do not need. If I powered it up in my shop the walls would suck in.
