  • Patent number: 3999243
    Abstract: A blower to clear obstructions such as leaves from a golf green in preparation to "putting" the ball, comprising a head having a slit to be positioned in proximity to the surface of the green. A tubular shaft extends upwardly from the head and terminates in a housing containing a motor having a fan. Batteries in the housing provide current to operate the motor upon actuation of a switch. The fan causes air to flow through the slit to blow the obstructions from the surface of the green in preparation for "putting" the ball. A brush can be positioned on the head to remove obstructions too heavy to be moved by the air stream.
