11hp Blower strapped onto walkbehind

Well... "Grandpa Bill" has been taking up space so I decided to do something with it. All I did was take two ratchet straps and lock it down to the top of one of my walker w/b mowers.. which doesn't get used anyways. It actually works incredibly well, and now I don't have to buy a self propelled blower. I might be mounting a leaf plow to the front if it continues to run. It also needs a rebel flag flying on the top.

For those interested, JRCO makes a frame for a push blower that goes on the front of ZTR and WB's.

I do like it though. I have an old WB I could do that with.

The jrco is much better bc it puts the nozzle of the blower closer to the ground. I was just bored and had these machines collecting dust so I went the cheapest route possible. Honestly it worked out great. That Billy goat is on its last leg and the walker isn't to far behind so ill probably use it until something breaks. The push blowers are faster, but when we're tired from lugging them around this rig always seems to get brought out of the trailer.
