Anyone know if the Legend GT is a 4 or 45? It's a Sutorbilt 4MVL. I've not really been able to find a lot of info on it.

Lobe blowers come in every size you can imagine I used blowers that moves as much as 650 cfm to move cement powder. Same blowers we use just bigger

I know the most common are 40's.

I have a 56 and I know the physical size of it, but Ross's vortex had one that was I'd say double the size of that! I can't remember if they called it a 6's or 7's. it was crazy.

I have always wondered if the traditional style supercharger (blower) we use on TMs could be improved by using a more moder Twin Screw Supercharger?

Traditional Lobe


Twin Screw


New ZR1 corvettes have the twin screw.

Or we could get a "huff and puff". Where they pre turbo charge the supercharger.....



Or even just get a BiG turbo..

Gardner denver makes a screw type 6 series that moves a ton of air,I'm waiting on a quote for one from the local guy that I'd love to use on the machine I'm piecing together. If you look at the stuff eaton is doing with the lobe technology its pretty amazing. I kinda toy with the idea of using an m112 or 122 and over driving the heck out of it. Some of those things can spin 12k rpm's. A turbo would be cool if you could figure out a way to attach a pulley to the impeller.

Instead of sucking up shop towels and shredding them, you could suck up someone's living room carpet and shred it!..

The 5.9 works well. Don't know about the others. I think the vortex and aerotech roll with a 6 series? You could wrap and vacuum seal an entire house in about 2 min with one of those things I bet!

I think extraction is under valued. All the emphasis seems to be on Chemical Heat Agitation Time. Without some good suction all the rest won't do Diddley is what I think.

I run a 45 and all I'm saying is good enough is good enough. Carpets are clean and dry quickly. If you ran a huge blower with crazy suction how could you even pull the wand ?
