    Trying to work smarter, again...

    I designed and fabricated this tow bar for push leaf blower based off another one on Utube. It cost me $20 in materials readily available from Tractor Supply. It worked like a dream. What almost killed me last year took almost zero physical effort this year. A great investment of a couple of hours! After all, we do have a TON of leaves!

    Very nice

    I’ve thought about making or buying one of these for my Litte Wonder and 455, I know Frank (superglidesport) has one and loves it.
