Wait, never mind, I'm not from the south.
LOL...thats funny. Too many trees around here to mulch and make it look nice. Ive tried it. GoldPro, those are awesome blowers. The right equipment makes all the difference.

The true test will be sometime in December when your freezing your nuts off trying to finish last minute cleanups and the leaves are frozen to the ground. I've yet to find a solution for that.

Goldilocks, you will never figure me out, because your IQ has to be higher then your age...!
On a side note, my truck is a 92 ....

i have no idea what a buffalo is, the hurricane handles the hills pretty good, only thing i dont like is the low oil shut off switch, it keeps kicking on when i get on any hills that are a bit too steep and shuts the machine off. i need to find where it is and un plug it so it stops turning off.

Just read the first page, but I'm guessing you sub out leaf vacuuming? Regardless, how can you get away with that much in the way of your view of the road? The engine and tranny can't like all the obstruction of air flow either...

Pretty hard to move a levee with a blower, usually if you want to move them at all you use a dozer
