    Noted above... $1750 for everything but the blower.

    $1750 is a lot of money considering the blower is not included. I built mine for a lot less.

    But also not bad compared to 10-12000 for a Walker that we use solely for the same purpose, or compared to the cost of a trac vac or protero system, or compared to the $$ value of the hours spent on design, fabrication, and testing of a unit I would build myself...

    Nevermind the fact that we have multiple spare blowers around the shop.

    This unit is the best fit for me and my situation... others may be different.

    For a small fee I'll show you some pictures of the shroud I had to build on the blower to stop the leaves from sucking upto the impeller intake and blocking it off.

    one thing about the piggy back is it wouldn't shred the leaves as well given they are not being put through a 2nd set of blades.

    this is my first year using o-turn mowers to remove leaves. i like simple and efficient methods. if the leaves are dry, mulch, then ride over again and bag them. (lower the deck as needed). if the leaves are wet, simply bag them. this method reduces the amt. on your truck and saves time. time is money. whatever you do in this business always think of ways to make it easier and less time consuming.

    That is correct, And that is why I built my bagger with a very large pull behind box. I wanted to be able to pick up a lot of leaves before dumping.
