Wiedenmann Whisper Twister

Jellis and Pinion admit to never having seen anything like it. The Whisper Twister can be three-point-linkage mounted to the rear of compact tractors of 25hp or more, but alternatively it can be fitted in place of the mower deck on a ride-on out-front rotary mower.

In a normal season that is probably a sound proposition, because the grass is expected to slow in its growth and a spare mower could become available just as the leaves start to fall. It is also a time when the tractor is likely to be tied up with other turf-care duties.

Described in Wiedenmann's literature as an "efficient blower", the Whisper Twister produces 200cu m/min (which is equivalent to 12,000cu m/h) at 50m/s and is designed for blowing leaves from sports pitches, golf fairways and parks.

It has a patented swivel mechanism so the leaf blower can be directed though 180 degs with only one hydraulic cylinder. This allows the leaves to be blown continuously without needing to back-up the tractor or mower.

In addition, the nozzle can be set vertically, so the air stream can be adjusted to suit the prevailing conditions.
