The first truly portable Wind Machine

Why Tow and Blow

The Tow and Blow Fan provides an affordable and incredibly effective solution to fighting frost!

In the early 1990’s a Kiwi Engineer returned home from USA where he studied the use of wind machines for frost protection and began developing his own machines right here in NZ. With many years of accumulated experience fighting frosts all around the world, a new concept was developed resulting in today’s Tow and Blow mobile Frost Fan. This machine has unparalleled features, to offer the grower unique, specially designed aerodynamic shrouded fan blade that efficiently delivers air using the least possible horsepower. This coupled with the machines complete autonomy eliminates permanent foundations, with the associated resource or building consents. Tow and Blow began a revolution in frost protection!

Depending on the area required to be protected, Tow and Blow now produce two models, the 250h and 650h. These NZ built Tow and Blow Frost Machines are designed to combat freezing conditions in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way. The unique design moves air with as little horsepower as possible. This means less fuel, less noise, more air, all on a frame that is totally mobile.
