I am looking for 1 roots 59 and 1 roots 56 blower. Must be in good working order.
Let me know here if you folks have one you want to get off your shelf.

This is for a project.
We are making a gas powered shop vac on steroids of sorts. It will be mounted on a slab of steel with wheels.

Please msg me or respond here in the thread.

Are you planning on driving to pick up the blowers or is shipping cost really that much more expensive if it is a few hundred miles farther?

They are over 200 pounds. I would have to use a common carrier and that gets expensive.
I can get rebuilt one from a place in Indianapolis for $1600. I was willing to drive a bit to pick one up. But both the offers above are 12++++ hours away.

Any pics, especially of the inside?
How many hours on em if you know?
Do the still free spin or are they locked up?

IF low enough price as I would have to ship, I will look into getting them shipped to columbus.

Never realized they was that heavy, I looked and a 47 blower which we run is over 150 lbs.

Just took pictures, send a phone number and I'll text them to you. What kind of engine will you be using? I also have an Wisconsin 65hp air cooled engine you might be interested in. My cell is 251 391 5569.
