Just wondering how everyone elses cleanups are going so far? I've been flying through mine with my new equipment i picked up this year. New for this year is my blower buggy, BG Force 13hp Honda, and Shindaiwa EB8510. Every time I start up my 8510, I'm amazed at how much harder it blows than the Echo750 I have. It is a little heavier and harder to start, however I find it is much more comfortable to wear than my 750 because the weight is up higher on my back. The Force is just that; its an absolute animal. Its easier to push around on the hills and undulations than my Little Wonder 10HP, weighs a pound less too. There isn't much noticeable difference in the blowing power of the 10HP LW and the 13HP force until the leaves get up about knee deep, then the force just stomps the LW. The final new piece I bought was a blower buggy for the Z. No more dead legs and exhaustion for me after a day of cleanups. I looked at the JRCO buggy since I have a jrco leaf plow and mount bar already, however they're $450+ mount bar if you don't have one. My dealer had a Giant Vac buggy for $200, so I picked that up and it is a godsend. It came with 3 straps and a mounting bar. It will work with the JRCO mount if you modify it a little. You have to drill four 3/4" holes and then you'll need a 3/4" stock pipe/conduit/rod to pin it in place. I ended up mounting mine to the REAR of the Z and have my Leaf plow in the front. It is an AWESOME setup, I windrow them with the blower, then idle it down and drop the plow and push them off in to the woods or into a pile to be sucked up. Then raise the plow and cleanup the scraps with the blower again. The best part is not feeling like you pushed your blower 10 miles uphill at the end of the day. I also modified my JRCO mount to go on a 2" receiver mount, I did this to be able to take off my plow quicker, and more importantly to beef up JRCO's crappy mount bar. My mount bar is 55" wide with about 48" in between the casters it would only take me about an hour of leaf plowing to turn the mount bar into a banana. I've got 2 days worth of leaf plowing on my new mount setup and no signs of bending or breaking yet. Pictures tomorrow when I remember to take the camera out of the truck.
