The Tempest Belt-Drive is the “Cadillac” of PPV blowers.

The Tempest Belt-Drive blower is still the best fan for fire brigades, offering the stability, durability, and reliability that today’s fire fighters require.

The current models have a number of updated features, but still, hold true to the original idea: Keep the motor low to the ground to reduce vibration and perfect the pulley system to maximize RPM/performance.

The BD's are the only units available in a 27" model.


  • The belt-drive design allows the motor to be set lower in the chassis thereby lowering the centre of gravity.
  • The belt-drive system helps to absorb engine vibration, which prevents the blower from “walking”.
  • The belt-and pulley system allows the blade RPM to be tuned to match the horsepower and torque of the engine.
  • Gasoline Engines - PPA
    • Gasoline-powered fans offer the highest CFM performance available. Ranging anywhere from 4.8 to 8.5 HP, these units are recommended for the implementation of Positive Pressure Attack (PPA) in residential structures.
  • Welded Roll Cage Frame
    • Every bend and cross brace weld is structurally engineered to give the PPV fan's frame more strength and durability, improving its strength to weight ratio by as much as 30%. The fan frame is specifically designed to give protection to nearly all angles and sides of the shroud and motor and doubles as a handle for lifting/carrying. This "roll cage" design allows for industry-leading durability for the everyday challenges that come with fighting fires.
  • 8" Non-Pneumatic Wheels
    • Extra-wide 8" off-road non-pneumatic tires are more durable and allow easy movement up and down stairs, over curbs and large diameter hoses, as well as through rough or muddy terrain.
    • The fan rests on firm, anti-vibration rubber feet for stability. "Walking" or movement of the blower while in operation is eliminated.
  • Turbo 2000 Shroud
    • By redesigning the inward curve and front of the shroud, the Turbo 2000 increases air velocity by up to 30%. The air hitting the ventilation opening is stronger and maintains PPV pressure farther downwind.
  • AirFlex Composition Impeller
    • Tuned and matched specifically with the size of the unit and model of engine chosen, the Tempest Belt-Drive's impeller "wings" deliver maximum air volume (cfm), velocity and pressure possible.
  • Flip-Up/Fold-Down Handle
    • The exclusive full-width handle design makes pushing or pulling the ventilator to and from the ventilation site quick and easy. The handle quickly swings up to a comfortable height and automatically locks firmly into position. Unlatch and easily fold the handle down for storage at the PPV fan's listed dimensions.
  • Dual "Winning Step"
    • No levers to set or knobs to tighten when setting the angle for positive pressure ventilation. Foot-operated adjustment is quick, easy and secure. The dual step allows for adjustment with either foot. Four back and one forward tilt position.

For the best combination of performance, durability, and stability, choose a belt-driven blower.
