this is basically an inbetween unit for us, we also run a toro groundsmaster with a blower but its too big alot of the time, and takes up ALOT of room on the trailer and only allows us to bring one mower with us when the toros on the trailer. then we end up having to bring 2 trucks and 2 trailers just to tow everything we need for cleanups.

with this blower being so small it fits on the triler with 2 60 inch mowers and makes it easier.

Ha funny you should mention that!, just put in a bid on a toro 322 D with an olathe blower off the front, diesel engine, etc. But yea thinking that thats gonna be pretty darn big! Especially on the trailer. This little guy might work. Any chance you can get a video of it running and movin around and all?

Monster and not 100% practical I'm sure but is it powerful and worth it otherwise? Say if trailer space and all wasnt a problem. Yea please do with the video, I'm super curious how this goes

forgot to mention, if you have a choice between finding a gas toro, or a diesel toro, buy the gas version, the diesel engine doesnt rev up as high and doesn't blow the leaves half as hard as the gas engine does. the gas engines scream and out perform the diesel by double.

I tried the big hurricane blow-vac and that thing was a monster, it out performed any wb leaf blower by alot.

The $5k price tag sounds pretty appealling and the unit looks well built. I'm excited to see the video of it.

Congrats on the new purchase!!!

Guess the diesel isnt all that good then huh. Its got 2500hrs on it, buy it now is 2700, bid is like 500 now. I'll see what these blo-vacs are like, toro doesnt seem worth it.

Anyone have an accurate idea on how much the larger hurricane blo-vac is?

I thought when I talked with the company owners a couple years ago the larger hurricane was near $11k-$12k?
