I was looking around the internet and found this... think I may have to try to build one...


Here's the link to read about it...
How to build a leaf catcher (http://www.instructables.com/id/Leaf-catcher-2000/)

Tell me what you guys think.

I bet that would be a huge time saver! How long do you think it would take to make it?

This is something you could video tape! We could even put this in GopherHaul!

If I get around to building one this winter, I'll record it... and I'll send it to you with some commentary on it...

I think it should take less than 2 hours from start to finish... Maybe even less than an hour, depending on circumstances at the time of the build.

I do wonder what the outlet pressure is on that tube and how far it can discharge before it starts getting clogged.

I dunno.... but I want to find a cheap motor somewhere that I can put in line somewhere that will help out with the suction into the box and the mulching of the leaves.
