    I can't remember which one but it was either little wonder or giant vac that actually made a conversion kit for a push blower. My dad used one at one time, and he said it worked great. Blew the leaves then slapped the hoses on and loaded the truck. If you have any fabrication skills you can get it done. I was actually thinking of doing this myself but bought a loader instead so I am curious as to how this will turn out. Go for it man.

    i took the front cover off of the blower and just flipped it around and it has a lil lip to attach a hose i dont know if the lip extends out long enough but i put a smaller hose up to it and its pretty powerful so now all i need is a hose i wish i took a pic of it... i dont know why people dont just do this instead of buying a leaf loader now i have a multi use blower
