Looks like it would work nicely, but I dont see that much more benefit opposed to a push billy goat or giant vac because you can't go to fast when you blowing leaves. If the cost isn't much more than go for it. The blower are unbeatable when you have a big leave job to do.
Good luck

hey john, i see a few guys in town who have them use them. by watching them work they do work pretty good! we have a huge agrimetal blower that mounts on the front pto of a hustler 4600 series. this thing moves some serious leaves. if we didnt have that, i would definately try that giant vac. ive never personally tried it cause we dont have the need for one, but seems the guys who have it swear by it.

I was tempted to get one from Collinsville Power Equ when they first came out but after looking at it a few times I decided it was very limmited for directional use. Would be hard to manouver the the Z to be very efficent. I ended up getting a Buffalo Turbine. The nozzel rotates 180 degrees.

I have seen those ZTR blowers. I used one in a lot. I would say if you have a lot of open areas works fine, but for confined not so great and it may scuff up the turf with alot of turning. I just saw the new self propelled Fraden 16 hp blower and looks very nice and priced right, at around 2,200. I will be getting one of these when my other blowers burn out.

I had one of those When i use to do bigger props, it was on the back (pto) of a tractor. We had a problem with the rock drive ways:nono: The problem was there was no rocks on the drive ways once you forgot and went over it:cry:

It could move leaves lololol.

See you at the big C's:waving:

Thanks rob:waving: Let me take a look at it. I dont want to use the mowers with the baggers for leaves anymore, i just want to blow them and then suck them up:D
