    I’ve got a ginormous clean up and I think this would be the best way to do it. Does anyone know where I could get one. I have already checked with all the local rental companies and United Rental.

    if your in this for the long haul, look into the giant vac 16z blower, it mounts to your ztr up front, i altered mine so i tow it in the back. its about $2500 but makes quick work of nearly all my lawns. it pays for itself in saving labor payroll. ive been meaning to take pics of it, just been too busy durring the day

    If you have an "Arts Rental" anywhere near you,they rent fairly new JD 5310 and 5320 AG tractors with almost every implement you can imagine.I rented one back in May to bush hog.They rent for $250. per day.

    Im in central jersey, why not sub us out to help ya? I can bring 4 guys, 3 big back pack blowers, a little wonder, and my ultra vac. We will be around the same price, and prob more efficient lol.

    Yeah it’s actually a privately own golf course, in customers back yard. If I needed to I could get 30 guys with 30 blowers, man power and equipment is not an issue for me, especially at this time of the year, but I’m trying to job done the easiest and most efficient way possible. I’m guessing if I can find one it’s going to cost me less then $500 for the day. When I worked on a golf course they had one and it worked great.

    Golf Course's have that stuff usually, maybe a local one will rent the whole ball of wax to them. If the superindentant is willing to work with companies then you could be set with nice maintained equipment for life.
