    What other attachments is Brown considering? I thought Hurricane was considering attachments too? That's what I've been waiting for. Year round usability.

    At the show he had a leaf plow on the front and an aerator kit. Said a vac bag is coming that will be on the back of the machine like a walker.

    A ride-on blower with a leaf plow on it...that would be a great.

    I still can't get over how lame their demo video is though. It looks like that operator had never run the unit before in his life and as a result his productivity was terrible. A 10 year old kid with a rake could move more leaves than he did!!!!

    That is Mr Brown i think. They had a small booth at the GIE inside and a small demo area that was off by it self that most people proably missed.

    Also the leaf plow and aerator was lifted up and down by a flip of a switch.

    I doubt that many guys have properties large enough to need that kind of blowing power.

    I would consider it just because it can be converted to a portable debris loader. No more problems figuring out how to mount your loader so that you can dump easily. And you can bring your leaf loader capacity away from the curb 37 feet ! Or, to the backyard.

    I would get the hurricane because it is a stand on.

    Both units, the Hurricane and the Brown, are stand on.
