Going Vertical with an Express Blower Truck for Green Roof


With the rising popularity of green roofs, Express Blower saw an opening to create more demand for its equipment and increase business opportunities for its customers by developing machines with the ability to blow materials “sky high.” While all EB machine models can go vertical for green roof installations, certain models have blown rooftop soil mixes more than 30 stories high, eliminating the need for cranes, wheelbarrows, and manlifts, while decreasing the amount of labor needed for installation.
