    Link to gas turbine for sale on EBAY.

    Max thrust is 640 lbs. Mount this on the boom of a backhoe, should clean an acre of leaves in 2-3 minutes. Guy says a toyota MR2 went 145mph with one of these.

    Its guaranteed not to budge a heavy tractor with 640 lb thrust, but it should throw a lot of leaves.

    Anyone ever stand behind an airplane? Last week was at the airport looking touring a Gulfstream V that was visiting. You can't even stand up behind it if the engine is idling and you are 50 ft away.

    LOL! i bet that thing sucks through some gasoline. for two days at darlington raceway, the track crew went through $15,000 worth of fuel. Granted that doesnt need jet fuel, but it will suck through the gas quick i bet.
