    Jeez, ride-on? I'll be impressed when I see them ghost-ride that whip!

    Maybe after blowing tonight, I'll tell her this one just ain't cutting it, and send her the link to that thing.:laugh:

    That link just sends us to the thumbnails. I thought about getting a PTO-driven blower, which is what I'm assuming you were trying to link to, but I would only be able to use it on my property and only a portion of it. I don't have any customer cleanups big enough to justify hauling my tractor out to and my personal golf course is still in planning stages. ;)

    Worst theme music in all of recorded history. I almost dropped my phone in the urinal when "chug-a-lug-a-lug at 5 miles an hour" came over the speaker. Nice find!

    LOL
    Not quite the worst. It could have been rap music:eek: (there's an oxymoron if ever there was one).:rolleyes::dizzy::hammerhead:

    You're spendin' waaay too much time with your phone in your hand if you can't put it down long enough to take a leak.:laugh:

    I couldn't agree more! I do Internet sales at a KIA dealership here in STL so I have to be able to access my customers pretty much all the time. It's great but it certainly is nice to unplug in the evening.

    Well.. Since we're recommending wheeled blowers... I've yet to see a dedicated blower that is badder than this one. It'll do the entire neighborhood in about 60 seconds.

    Now, does that one actually blow the leaves, or does it just incinerate them?
