    Brickman has used some for the past 2 years on their ZTR's. Just had a prototype returned here yesterday (season is over) that was being tested for stand on mowers. He loved it, and wished he had more leaf customers to keep using it on. Claims to have at least doubled his productivity. Looking for a 2014 summer intro for a stand on mower version.

    Let me know if you have any questions or problems.

    thanks the blower seams like it would be a real productive to add onto a ztr. From everything i have read about them online i like. The pictures of the mounting system look great, i like the honda motor and the foot pedal to turn the chute is an awesome feature. What kind of hours do you here contractors getting out of 1 tank of gas?

    I have the same engine on a walk blower and get 1-2 hours per tank of gas.

    sjessen is right on. A full tank should get you 2 hours. While using it myself I did become quite confused when it ran out of gas. The ZTR was going and the blades were on. With all of that noise and and regular vibration I couldn't even tell when the blower died. I thought something broke because the leaves were no long moving. I turned off the blades and started reviewing the blower. I got a good laugh at myself when I realized the engine was out of gas.
