    I had to put my enclosed combo trailer build on hold got a new project.. I picked this up at a town auction, it's got a 4cyl Wisconsin, I think it's a 12 inch intake and it's got the intake on the bottom. It was made for the golfcourse, but I figured I could throw an axle underneath it and put a hitch on the front and give it a whirl on some clean ups? I only paid $150.00 for it, even if it doesn't work I can get that much for scrap for it lol

    lol......they use them on golf courses mostly, pull it behind the tractor and it vaccums up the leafs. It also has a hose that came with it so you can use it as a truck loader.

    I would just grab the scrap money....that thing looks like a money pit. I have done that type of thing a million times. Most of the time it ends up costing me a lot more than I anticitpated

    Mount it on that yellow chevy in the background, that way you can have the vaccum and take a trailer.
