    Doesn't anybody else want a leaf blower unit to fit their hydro WB (with 25hp motor) in place of their floating deck??? I realize someone else has made a unit for riders and is now out of business???

    Not for me Pete...I have Trac Vac 470's mounted on the front of my Ferris WB's.

    Make more mullah vacing the leaves then I do blowing 'em into the woods.

    Nice idea tho. Not so sure I wanna take the mower decks off just to blow leaves. How well do those things work? CFM? MPH? etc.

    I'm not sure what you mean. If I'm gonna bag the leaves I'd use a rider, and not bother with a WB. But to blow the leaves, I'd like the most HP I can get, and add the maneuverability of a hydro WB for steering. I know one thing, it still gets back the controls on a Hustler.
