Russian surplus hand crank blower

Recommended Posts

So I found an awesome piece of history on ebay. I like war memorobilia from Ww1 and Ww2. Anyway it says it produces 3500 cubic feet of air per hour... i will show my ignorance and admit that I have no idea how much that is? Anyway would this be a good blower. Also we arent supposed to talk about politics but rest assured my political leanings do not lean the same way as the makers of this blower

I think those russian blowers are cool. And some come with a small generator too. Always wanted to get one but the shipping kills my budget.

I have one of these beauties.  Have to say quite impressed.  Was a little much on shipping but considering what I would have spent on one that is comparable it was a good deal.  keeps an Anthracite coal going.

I was talking to one of my mentors and he told me it might be a emergency bunker vent, as it has both hand crank and mechanized capabilities.  Mine had a coupler for a air line on the intake that had a gasket.   It does not have the flat blade blower commonly found on solid fuel blowers, Rather it contains a hybrid squirrel cage fan that actually moves a bit of air.  At some point in the future I will see what the water column pressure is.  All in all, I am happy with it.
