    Here is a picture of a straw blower in action today, we were landscaping and they came in and hydroseeded 5.5 acres and then blew straw on it and crimped it. The blower was built by the owner and uses big bales these were 3" X 4' x 8' it can flat out blow some straw.

    How much does it cost. Ill take it. Ill take two. Man I could really use one of them. I hate strawing by hand. Especially when its real hot and Im sweaty. Makes ya itch & feel crappy.
    Actually Id like to get one of the bed mounted ones for some of my jobs.

    I'd hate to be the guy handling those big bales to the throat. We used to do it like that on the road const, but used a 45' flat trailer and smaller bales.
