How do I refill the compressed air tank on my blower? It doesn't seem to shoot it as far now that the tank is getting low! LOL!!!!

Yes, the people who made the video missed that whole "impeller" thingy behind the auger.

Funny.

I can't find the air tank to refill it, hope the impeller kit makes up for the lack of air

I don't even think I saw the impeller in the animation. Just a circular hole where magic and compressed air mix!

A corollary to "Those who can't do, teach" would be:
"Those who don't understand, make documentaries."

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)

Well, they only got two things wrong in two minutes!

1. "in 1925, a Montreal engineer invented the first snow blower"
not true..railroads were using them in the 1880's.

2. compressed air? seriously? wow..they did almost no research for that story.
