For no particular reason i got thinking about this today. Im not even sure how i got on this train of thought. But anyway, i got thinking what if you could somehow remove the blades and fabricate some kind of "blade brushes " for sweeping streets or whatever else. Seems like you would have to make a rubber strip that goes down past the mower deck to the street because the brushes would hang down past the deck and crap would be flying out everywhere. Then you could make a lined bagger at the discharge chute to collect the dust. Could it really be that easy? Just seems to simple to work. The brushes would have to be heavy duty, becuase they would be spinning extrememly fast. Heck if i keep on thinking like this i will invent a concrete finisher ztr. I could put steel trowels on it instead of blades.
