Blower tube adjustments?

    Does anyone "rig" anything up for their backpack leaf blower at the end of the tube to change the direction of the blowing angle so it's not straight-out? I mean like a "U" shaped piece of plastic at the end so you can stick it into bushes against a house and blow them about to the lawn or anything like that? Does that added resistance of all that wind making a hard and sudden 180 degree turn do anything bad to the blower motor system?

    I'm thinking of making something up, but not sure if they sell something already or not.

    I have a Redmax 7001. Thanks for any tips.

    my BR-400 came with an end piece that is about a 45 degree angle.

    using it is tiring because you have to hold the tube up off the reound.

    I used it so rarely that I don't even know where it is or the second piece of discharge pipe either.
