    The truth is that I do have a dual blower setup that I use and it is very fast and productive because you can focus the two air streams individually or together and move leaves faster. It's the same thing as when 2 guys on blowers team up to move a pile, but you can execute it better yourself. It's awesome really. The only problem is the exhaust from the blower on your chest :) Even though it's faced away from you, it's still in your face and it's to the point you're going to get carbon monoxide poisoning. But having 2 tubes would be awesome, I've done it... Sometimes along with the wheel blower. For now I'll have to settle for using my wheel blower and only one backpack blower simultaneously...And no I'm not kidding for once.

    im not trying to detract from folk improvin stuff , this is just input in attempt help : putting a two tubed backie on and taking it off plus storing it on trailer is going to be a hassle . to me the quest is more power in lighter package with single tube . and maybe that can be accomplished by a better strap / harness style which allows one to carry more weight without burden . but you still get to more weight and size being a hassle to pick up and put on an off which'll turn folk off from using it . so my two cents on it , and like i said im not detracting but rather tryin to help , is that a double barrel isnt going to win and your better off putting your efforts into other ideas
