Alternate source for Walker Blower

Is there any other source than OEM for the Walker blower unit? Does anyone know of a Walker dealer who will mail parts?

No, there is no other source. Buy the heavy duty blower for much longer life.

You can get a "Harden HD" blower for use around where there is a lot of sand. Walker blowers ARE re-build-able. The fan can be replaced if the housing is still good and the housing can be replaced if the fan is still good. You can replace the fan and weld a patch over the slit in the housing as well. Walker makes there own blowers in house.

Thanks, I have rebuilt before. The casing is well worn, so I will probably replace. The bearings would need to be replaced since it has about 1,600 hours on the fan. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. Thanks for the info.
