Pretty hard to move a levee with a blower, usually if you want to move them at all you use a dozer
that truck has had that vac on it since the 80's with no problems what so ever, its actually illegal now to have the front mounted vacs because they do obstruct alot, no one ever bothers you for it tho.

You guys are too funny. I just read the whole thread. Does it really matter if he works for his brother or him self? I think not. What's important is that he has a sick blower. I've been considering one but I can't justify it. Nice blower. Keep us informed on how it holds up.

Only thing video shows, is it takes 2-3 guys to move the piles...
I never said the hurricane wasn't useful, as you can see team work goes along way in leaf removal...
