    I hope this has to do with earth moving. I have been trying to figure out what this piece of metal is for a while. I figured someone on here would know what it is. Its been sitting there for a couple of decades.

    yea I would scrap it if I owned. But this company does not get rid of stuff, so it is staying.

    Maybe a blower for a burn pit? Being how it's all rusty and the blowers on the back make me think it's been exposed to some heat at some point but just pure speculation...

    Thanks, but what is a burn pit blower. What is it used for, why is it set up like this. Is like a blower to a brush pit burner.

    Yeah, push over the trees and burn the debris. Gets the fire going real nice.

    if its a burner it's not a mcpherson they are a bast@rd to set up if your new at it i'm gonna go with burner but would it be used on top of the ground or in a pit someone tell me if i'm wrong but the tway i was taught you kee pthe loading side of the pit(i've only loaded a pit with a dozer)higher than the side the burner is on to create a circle or tornado effect in the pit so as to get rid of the smoke quicker a fire marshal told me that 1 time
