Express Blower equipment makes it easier for you to expand your business and capitalize on high profit specialty applications like erosion control blankets and berms, rooftop garden installations, Terraseeding, aggregate placement, and playground safety surface installation.
More Than Mulch
Initially manufactured and promoted as a “mulch” or “bark” blower, the Express Blower quickly became much more. Through our extensive research and development, we were soon able to alert our customers that other materials such as composts, soil blends, and some aggregates could be efficiently applied with the EB equipment, immediately opening up new markets.
With the advent of our patented, calibrated Supplemental Injection System, a whole new world of possibilities opened up. With this seed (or granular) injection system, Terraseeding was born. Now, a lawn could usually be completely installed in less than two hours! Tired, unhealthy turf could be topdressed with compost and seed, adding new life and creating a healthier growing environment. Again, in one easy step.
Some applications became more prominent and accepted through the result of government regulations and/or incentives. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the erosion control industry. The NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) requires the implementation of controls designed to prevent harmful pollutants from being washed by stormwater runoff into local water bodies. One of these widely accepted controls is the erosion control blanket. The EB’s ability to blow heavy materials and seed simultaneously at great distances has become a huge advantage for erosion control blanket installations.
Those of us at Express Blower are always looking for new ways in which to use the equipment. When we saw rooftop gardens (or green roofs) becoming more accepted and even incentivized by the government, we immediately looked at how we could become part of this new industry. Several years later, and with our development of even more powerful equipment, EB is a major player in many green roof projects and has placed material more than 30 stories high.
