My uncle and I were sitting around and we came up with this. Well last year I picked up a pistol grip Turf Tracer that the engine had caught fire off Craigslist for a couple hundred bucks, and we also have a back up mower that is the same. So we unbolted the entire front off the mower then bolted the front end off the mower that was burned. then we fabbed up a mount for my Billy goat blower. Just trying it out works like a dream were going to clean the design up a bit then put some paint on it and use it.

it would be sweet if the blower was on a swivel and could cut the time down in half

I know right, we also have a mount for the Lazer that we mostly use (that we made). This will help on just not having to push this blower around complex's and large jobs.:drinkup:

To the op, would it be possible to drop the deck and fab up a carrier to attach to the same spots as the existing deck? It looks like you extended the frame on yours.

The frame was not touched at all. Also the front cross member that we cut out was in the way for any blower (little wonder/billy goat) to fit and be removed and put on by a single person. We at first wanted to do Exactlly as you stated but was not something that was practical.

So I noticed at the GIE this year they had something very much like your idea, but attached to the front of a zero turn using the JRCO adaptor and had an electronic swivel that turned the blower head 360 degrees. Really sweet setup for somewhere around 2500 i think. I cant remember.
