Did a quick fab up for testing on a 3 point blower setup. It is ugly, I got the blower for a 100$ it was used for a sealcoat company thus the spots but it runs good. got a carry all and mounted it, if it works tomorrow I will put a 1/4 plate across the platform a swivel wheel in place of the fixed, and a speed control close to the seat along with some nice green paint. also going to put some tubes on the edge of the uprights for rakes etc. and a hanger for the backpack blower to cleand the flower beds and bushes on the run.

Cool! :thumbup1gif: Gotta love it when a plan comes together. I have very similar attributes, and I like taking simple ideas and putting them to use. It made me very successful in my career as a mechanical design "engineer". Keep it simple, that's my motto.

YOU ARE MY HERO!

I have been fantasizing about this EXACT setup for months. Was even going to buy the same carry all. I have resorted to carrying the blower in the FEL for now. But, depending on how this works out for you, I may adapt.

I like what you've done because I would like to keep my machine light-weight over some soft spots. The FEL doesn't help much with that.



How did you attach the blower to the carry all? Just some generic iron? Also, do you plan to mount casters to the carry-all? Seems like you are well on your way to a solution.

PS. I feel your pain on the volume of leaves. I get huge amounts daily as well.

Worked pretty well the grass is tall and it is damp in the air (leaves heavy). I Have my design change in my head and will tackel them when I get some time. such as a swivel caster at the end of the blower so I dont drag the wheel when turning, also will scrap the steel supporting the blower for a 1/4" plate steel and bolt the blower to the plate, will also give me a place to set things.

i like it!, but now that you have them all blown into a row Now what? thats a nice looking yard. How are you going to pick them up or will you just mulch em right there?? I've had similar thoughts but have gone toward the suck em up into the wagon route as my yard is no where near as open or flat as yours.Now you got me wondering if i should just blow em over the back bank.

With that many leaves and still more on the trees I'd have me a cyclone rake or something of that nature. And in my case, dump them into my rock garden and burn them. :fire:

I take the back pack blower in a pile then haul them to the woods as there is no place to blow them to.
In the back yard I just blow them in the woods works good beats walking with a blower.
