Here's a video shot in the moment. Not a great video, but one nonetheless.

i have no doubt it is a very nice machine to use for leaves where you blow them to the street and use a vac to remove them type of jobs, or along forests like we have on some estates to blow everything into.

Those are really nice, I live like 15min from the guy who invented them. He teamed up with a local sheet metal company in the area and started to make a bunch of them. It seems like he is starting to get the word out about his product but the price is a little high if you ask me. A few guys I know have them and really like 'em. Around Grand Rapids Dj's seems to have the most of them.
