The BT40 blower designation stands for the BloTech 40 cubic yard model bark blower as developed by Highway Fuel Company, LLC in Salem, Oregon. BloTech (BT) is the design name under which Highway Fuel Company (a 90 year old family owned business) has developed its innovative bark blowers over the last 30 years. In the 2001 timeframe Peterson Trucks adopted the BT designation when they purchased the design rights for a period of 10 years from Highway Fuel Company under a non-compete from company owner Bill Jones. Today Bill and sons run the many operations of Highway Fuel Company which include a full scale landscape supply company including a bark blowing business in addition to the manufacturing of quality bark blowers for their own use and for others in this niche industry. See the below links for more information about Highway Fuel Company and BloTech bark blowers. The benefit of dealing with BloTech trucks and Highway Fuel is that Bill Jone’s truck designs utilize relatively few proprietary parts making component repair and parts replacement relatively easy.
