fall cleanup MUST HAVE blower!

Ive had this on here before, if you live in new england, or an area with lots of leaves and big lawns like us, this is a must have. its a giant vac 16z blower that is made to mount to the front of a mower. ive unbolted the mounts, and drilled house/mounted it to the back of my mower and tow the blower. it is unbeleivably efficent. we mow while we blow. we also cut low so we take up any leaves stuck in the grass. imagine doing a giant lawn in a few minutes longer than normal and clearing massive amounts of leaves at the same time. check out the pics, any questions, id be happy to answer

Cool beans. I like it when people make things work the way they want them to.

im shocked at how few people use these. they are soo fast. i tell everyone i know to buy one, i just got my 2nd for this year. they are the way to go. dollar for dollar, if it was the same price as the hurricane blower, id still go this route because i can mow while i blow

Hmmm, that's interesting, might be something for me to work on this winter as I have
a spare Little Wonder 8hp blower and recently acquired an arc welder as well.

Might not be the most powerful but I can't afford to spend that kind of money when I already have two push blowers,
unfortunately I have little use for equipment that just sits around and if I try and sell it every buyer wants to haggle me
down until I don't want to sell it anymore LOL.

Honestly speaking now, probably can't go but so fast with it on...
Thou I will agree, if you don't have a push blower, you should get one.

Thanks for sharing.

I would love to see a video of this. Do you see any benifit of having it mounted on the rear of the mower vs. the front?

VIDEO, it blows leaves! the advantage is two major reasons. 1. in the front, it is so far from the drive wheels that it is difficult for the mower to turn around and spins the tires quite a bit.
2. when its out in front, it also blow the opposite directions as the deck discharge which is bad. by pulling it, you mow (which picks up the leaves dumps them out the deck) effectively cleaning up the grass, then the mower nearly clears the next pass which the leaves stuck down in the grass are cleaned out next pass by while you mow.

Oh yeah, I want more pics and a video for sure. It does make sense to pull it, because it will help disperse and clean what you just shot out of the deck. That thing is cool. Tony
