Turbo blower assembly

I have been doing some research and plan on getting a turbo collector for my 50" deck on my prestige. When I look up the part number on my prestige mower the only attachment that comes up is a plow assembly. My deck does not have a part number only a serial number. My question, are all turbo assemblies the same for 50" deck? is it possible that the differences are just in the mount kit on the deck? From various turbo diagrams I have looked at they all seem to share the same fan housing number.

Re: Turbo blower assembly

As far as I know they fit 38" 44" 50". Same deck outlets. They must keep things simple. I had one on a 38" worked great but a little bulky. There is one for sale on Ebay at a pretty decent price from Floyds with free shipping. I bought from him before, pretty good guy. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Simplicity-...~bhT:rk:4:pf:1

That setup is missing the brackets for the deck and the drive pulley for the deck. I'll say one thing they sure are much more trouble to install than the ones on a 60" deck. My son has a 44" deck, and his doesn't come off very easy. He broke the drive belt on his this summer and him and his buddy couldn't figure out how to replace it.

Re: Turbo blower assembly

Thanks for the information. I picked up a turbo blower assembly with a twin bagging unit for $75 on craigslist. It seems in real good condition and looks like it wasn't used that much. I know the twin bagging system will probably not fit my prestige but I was more interested in the blower. I'll just clean up the bagging system and sell it in spring.

Re: Turbo blower assembly

Does your machine have the pulley that you need to drive it?
I have a Broadmoor with a 38" deck ...I would have to look at it and check but I think that the one from Floyd is incomplete

Re: Turbo blower assembly

I have that same turbo blower on the 44" deck of my Broadmoor. I can put it on and remove it in less than a minute. Maybe it's more difficult on other model decks, I don't know. I did change the belt in one of my blowers and I needed to take the thing apart a little bit. It is a real pain. I don't really remember all the details as it was a couple years ago. But mine works like a charm and I've never had any issues with it except for plugging it up with high wet grass. But that's operator error, no fault of the blower. It moves a crap load of grass. If my grass is especially high I'll mow it and let it lay a few hours to dry out. Then go over it again with the blower attached. By doing this I can fit more grass into the bags and it's not heavy like when catching it when it's cut. If you download the parts manual for the turbo blowers, you'll see all the parts you need to make it work. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a user manual.

Re: Turbo blower assembly

I have a 3 bag turbo bagger collection system now and had another in the past. The weak spot is the bracket that holds the blower assembly. It will break in the center due to excessive stress with the leverage on it. We welded in a stiffening bracket, the fix was easy and worked well.

"I can put it on and remove it in less than a minute." I'd like to see that. My son has a Broadmoor with a 44" deck and a powerflow, and it takes US a lot more time than that. On his, the blower is bolted to a bracket and it's pretty hard to get the bolts lined up correctly. We had to change the belt on his late last season and it took us a while to get it together. I don't think they intended for them to be removed like they did the legacy with the 60" deck. The powerflow system on my legacy with a 60" deck was much easier to put on and take off.
