I had an idea for a leaf blower, maybe i'm not the first, but I wanted to know what you guys thought of it. I have an Old John Deere 112, that is basically sitting around collecting dust, but it runs fine. My idea was to convert it to a leaf blower or to build a leaf blower attachment for it. Run the blower using a belt powered by the tractor's PTO pully. I'm sure it has enough power, and these tractors are very sturdy, and they have a great crawler gear. Another part of my idea was to have a flexible hose that could be controlled by the driver to direct the air in the desireable direction. My expectation would be a blower with more power than a typical walk behind, that is easier to move from point A to B to C, but more cumbersome when a quick change in direction is needed. My questions: Does anybody have such a beast or used anything similar? How would it work? Is this just stupid? Set me straight.
