Has anyone ever considered this or ever seen this done? I was watching Deconstructed tonight on Science channel. Was thinking if the impeller was the right gage. May be it would hold up? Remove auger and attach hose to opening. I have a friend here that buys returns from Sears and has a couple of large size snow blowers (like 30" or so) I could get dirt cheap. This is just a little off season brain fart idea I had tonight I may give this a good look. I'll keep all interested posted.
