    My new hurricane blower came in today. I was trying to keep up with goldpro until I found out he bought another one:hammerhead::laugh:. I will post a review once we have a chance to use it. Here are a few pictures of it. The thing is pretty darn powerful and a double flap thing on the discharge and allows you to have them both up, both down, or one up and one down and it is all done with a switch. Pretty cool machine!

    Very nice blower. Can you rotate that output chute up and down?

    Yeah....see those flaps on the discharge. You can have them both up, both down or one up one down. The last pic shows the switch that runs it.

    Thanks. its a 14hp subaru. They have a larger one with a 27hp that also works as a truck loader but it was a lot more than I wanted to spend and we already have a truck loader.

    Thanks...I'm looking forward to it.

    About how much do those cost? I remember the bigger ones being really expensive.
