One of my customers is building one for me. It will go on the front of my dixie.
It will have one cross piece that rests where the bumper get installed, a piece then extends down from that horizontal piece to which is attached the support for the blower. we will find out by next week how well it works. And i will post some pictures.

------------ horizontal piece
()() vertical -connects horizontal to base
//////// base which is where the blower sits

if you need pictures for reference when building it, you can go to jrco's website. they have something called a blower buggy which does the same job.

Go to JRCO website. They have pictures of the blower caddy that you can go off from. Little Wonders are great!! My crew has 4 of them and they clean some serious leaves from a WOODED apt complex. Good luck!

Congratulations on your purchase of the finest blower in the industry. This thing will blow circles around any other blower available. Tried, tested, and proven. As far as the JRCO blower buggy goes, it works great. Just gotta watch the tiedown straps though, as they sometimes come undone. The thing is though, is depending on what you're moving, and what you're moving them with, sometimes it's more feasible to just use the mower. For instance, if you're moving rather deep heavy leaves, this blower works best, but with me, using a Lazer, if they are rather light leaves, like just a few inches deep when piled, sometimes the mower can move them faster because it cleans the ground better, and has greater ground speed in doing so. You just have to sort of feel it out, you'll get to know what works best for different conditions just by looking at it. ;)

Giant Vac just released a blower buggy as well. Try
http://www.giant-vac.com/1_0a_8.html for some other ideas. I have a 9 hp honda little wonder and am very pleased by its performance. Good luck with your blower buggy

If you didnt want loud you shoulda gotten a billygoat qb1004 10horses operated controlled air shoot and veryquiet. I believe it is the nylon fan instead of steel impeller that results in less sound. I love my machine good luck with yours. If i hada dealer i would have checked out lw.

I couldn't agree more with my edited quote of Runners comment.

Northerntool.com has some nice caster tires you can use.


Beck how much longer before I start building this buggy for your blowers? You customer aint even started yet.

After a long meeting with my welder\fabricator buddy we decided that the jrco may be the best answer. It looks like a big job to build a cart that will handle and move well. this is going to go on a scag sthm three wheel rider and boy is that baby long. Am I making a poor choice with this combination?? should I just stick to pushing the blower around by hand. has anybody else tried this. will people look at me like doc in back to the future as I zip around the yard ? any input would be great.

if you dont have enough justification to purchase a blower buggy and have a walk behing with a sulky then just do the following. take the little wonder, turn it around and put the handle around your waist, then stand on your sulky, flex your abs, and off you go. Just pull the blower behind you when standing on your sulky.
