Blower Tubes

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by LAWNGODFATHER, Jan 1, 2003.

  1. Whenever I get a new blower, I take some black electrical tape and rap it around the seems on the tubes to prevent them from 1) coming off 2) keep them from wearing the joints out 3) keep from loosing them.

    Anyone else do this?

    I actually remove the lowest section, then tape the rest.

    I used some black electrical tape to fix the flex tube part, it got damaged when i forgot to put it in the trailer and ran part of my blower over:rolleyes:(oppsy) and ripped open the rubber flex tube, so far no leaks in the flex tube. Considering I did rap the tube a certain way so it would still be flexible with the tape on it.
    How tape can do wonders :D

    I use duct's wider and I think it holds better and longer.

    Always. Duct tape as well, holds up much longer.
