    Seems like good idea, unless you have a lot of puncture vine around.

    nice design, im sure it will be much easier and quicker to roll around now. it should glide much easier over the terain.

    I did the same thing on my upright compressor. Much easier moving it around as well as up and down steps. Nice work!!!

    But you have to tell us, how do the Lakewood traction bars work out on your blower?

    Nice....I Mounted an old Echo Back Pack on one of the Walk Behind Blowers....Looped the tube so it points in the same direction as the Walks Discharge & Now I have a Super Blower !

    Fareway,

    I have been thinking about that for about 10 years now.
    Do you have any pictures?
    Great idea, how does it work?
