7hp Bob Cat repaired finally

Hi All

Haven't had a chance to use her yet, but I got the impeller drive repaired on my 7hp Bob Cat finally. Needed 2 sprockets a chain and pulley to get it operational again.

Well done. Those are cool looking blowers. I've got a buddy that is a huge fan of his old Bobcat 36" walk behind mower.

Thanks, I've had the 5hp 20" blower for about 20years now and it works great, added the 7hp one last year. They are great machines, i've liked them and was first introduced to them when working as a small engine mechanic in Milwaukee. Now to finish off the collection with the 8hp 28" version when I can find one in nice shape.

Just wish Bob Cat still supported them with parts, but most things on it can be found or made for it.

They look great!
I have the 4hp. I 've had it a good month and am now I working on the motor. It hadn't run in years, but its fired up and so now I am cleaning & painting. The rest seems to be in good shape, not rusted much but I haven't taken it apart . Should be interesting?

I am big on the older equipment. I love watching that old heavy metal still working it. My chain saws are old Husky's. Maybe that's cuz I'm old myself. Seniors Strong! .. something like that..

When you repowered with Tecumseh how did you handle the six to one reduction? Are there options ?
