    I think the Public Works crew where I live should buy a few of these. Looks impressive to me. The only downside I see to it is the vacuum hose isn't very long. Other than that.. WOW. One of these wouldn't be bad for the guys who do Curbside Leaf vacuuming services.Wanted to see what others thought, here is the website: www.theodbco.com/products/scl800sm.htm

    all that looking into the pass. mirrors would kill me. It needs to have a video monitor with wade angle camera and an old school Nintendo controller, now that would then be way cool...

    That particular truck is a dual drive...like a street sweeper. You run it from the passenger side, as well.

    if penndot ever got ahold of that thing it wouldnt be a one man machine it would be more like a 4 or 5 man machine. one driver. one guy raking. one guy watching from behind. and one guy watching in the front. maby every once and while one of the watchers would rake too
