    that is what i thought, i dont know what that is though, it is like an extention on the top of the vac?? and you cant see it, but he is holding a handle that resembles a large leaf vac type set up!

    What ever works for him, the guy is a genius!

    He's a homeowner & not getting paid I assume!

    I had a neighbor about a half mile down the road (they since moved to Florida) that would literally sit on his shop vac for days vacuuming his lawn in the spring. Always wondered how that worked because the shop vacs I have blow the air out the top...or maybe that's the part he enjoyed? lol

    BTW, wouldn't it be smarter to just put the hose in the discharge and use it as a blower?
