Has anybody ever tried this before

I was thinking and I came up with a good idea. Has anybody ever used a very small leaf loader like 8 hp. and mounted it on a cart to blow leafs into another cart or maby big trach cans with some special lids. That would make doing leaf cleanups in back yards like 10 time easier. then during the headge trimmpig season you could use it to clean up the hedge clippings. Then as an added plus the hedge clippings would be greatly reduced and easier to manage. plus I would think that vacuming them out of gardens would be muc faster and have cleaner results tham if you were to rake them up then put them on a tarp. I was thinking of modifing a machine like this. http://www.mackissic.com/leafvacuumcycler.htm Then when the job is done you would just have to take a hand cart and go pick up a few trash cans. that I think would be much faster than a tarp and rake. and much easier that trying to drag a tarp through a gate full of leaves. What do you guys think
