AUTO START Portable Wind Machine

AUTO START Portable Wind Machine

The Tow & Blow is a portable and extremely affordable wind machine, which is highly effective in combating freezing temperatures, or frost, as well as soaring temperatures and the associated sunburn in plants. It is a highly adaptable wind machine that can be used in valleys as well as hilly terrain, and it can be easily relocated – so it protects trees, vines and any horticultural or viticultural crop against frost burn in the most challenging environments. Guarding against freezing temperatures in plants can be difficult, but the Tow & Blow makes it as simple and realistic as is possible. Please contact us for more information.

Features of the Tow and Blow Portable Wind MachineIMG_4037 CROPPED

  • 2 metre diameter 5 blade impeller (shrouded) made in Denmark out of Glass Reinforced Polyamide.
  • Fan head raises to 8.2 metres above the ground
  • AUTO START:- The Auto start function is a temperature triggered start of the fan.
  • Both the fan and the rotation/ oscillation of the machine will operate once the set start temperature is reached.
  • A temperature differential is set to stop the machine when the temperature is high enough.
  • This Portable Wind Machine can be easily towed behind your vehicle to where you need it to operate from. Put down the support feet, level the machine and you’re ready to go.
  • lt’s impeller is in an aerodynamically designed composite shroud, increasing air volume by up to 95% over non shrouded traditional fans. Having a shroud is like turbo charging the fan.
  • The airfoil’s low power consumption saves power while reducing noise, making it a high efficiency solution.
  • Air exits a fan in a spiral motion which causes the airstream to lose energy; the straightening vanes on the Tow & Blow take out the spiral motion and maximise the energy in the airstream.
  • The impeller blows unobstructed, away from the tower so no loss of air momentum.
  • It has an adjustable rotation speed.
  • It has oscillating ability, enabling the machines rotation cycle to be synchronised.
  • Fan head can be angled for protecting crops growing on hills or valleys.20170215_1246031
  • HYDRAULICS; ROTATION AND OSCILLATION
    • Hydraulic functions of the Tow & Blowand driven by a DC hydraulic pack.
    • Rotation/ oscillation functions are controlled by a DC Electric Drive.
    • The Battery is charged when the fan is running.
    • A solar panel provides backup power when the fan is not in use.
  • Easy service, just lower the impeller and engine to the ground.  side view lowered(1280x746)
  • No Concrete Foundations needed
  • To the best of our knowledge; no Resource Consent needed
  • No Building Permit needed
  • No need to pull out vines or trees to install
  • Low operating and servicing cost.
  • Very very quiet. Tested by Acoustics experts at less than half the noise level of any other wind machine in the world.
  • Tow & Blow can be moved to work with the natural air drift which can sometimes shift direction, meaning Tow & Blow is always giving best result.
  • No external service cost required.
  • No specialty parts, all available worldwide, no reliance on manufacturer for unique spare parts.
  • Completely moveable to protect different crops requiring frost protection at different times in different locations.
  • Can be leased out for other uses during off-season, as a ventilator and evaporative cooler. Used for drying fruit pre-harvest and before pruning.
  • Used for assisting with pollination.
  •  Comes with water misting option for cooling. In warm dry climates a temperature differential of -8 ° C can be achieved.
