What seems to have happened here is that this is the neighbours blower which was some reason was installed on what is now your property.
This is where it gets complicated.
Anything which is attached to the land becomes part of the land and therefore it belongs to you. You can therefore do what you like with it as it is a fixture.
On the other hand, he will claim that it belongs to him and he is entitled to an easement for it being in place.
However, in the absence of an agreement for it to be in place needed to have been there without consent and without objection and not in secret for more than 20 years to claim an easement. It seems unlikely that he has simply put this there without consent or objection and certainly not in secret and therefore, as it appears that he has consent, then he has the blower there on a licence and the licence can be revoked on reasonable notice.
Hence, if it’s your blower, you can remove it and if it’s his blower, you can ask him to remove it on reasonable notice which would probably be three months.
Can I clarify anything else for you? I’m happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
