    I'm sick of unloading my 12cu Peco mower mounted catcher every few feet in leaf season. I have a garden cart, and have modified the rear of my Ferris IS3000 (older non spung swing axle style) by adding a hitch pin. I'm sure that I'll need to leave the Peco blower on the mower so it can suck up the clippings without getting hose clogs. I want to eject them into the garden cart that I've added sides and a roof too. I'm trying to find a longer 6" hose for the discharge of the blower (without much luck) or come up with another way to extend the discharge.

    Any thoughts or hints would be appreciated... I mostly want to use the Peco as a leaf vac, and don't care so much about the cut grass.

    Thanks
    Rusty
