If thats the total price then you got a steal. I been looking for one but anything bigger then 12hp is fetching $1500-$2000. I seen the smaller ones for half that but I dont have faith they could do what I want.

$800 is the total I was hoping less because I got it off ebay for $210 and not had a shop fix it (I just didn't have time to play)

The 16hp is heavy and hard to move around but man it has POWER

What a fantastic setup! It looks like you spent a lot of time perfecting all that! I bet with all of it working, your operation is a lot faster picking up leaves than in the past.

Those pictures would make for some great postcard marketing material for leaf cleanups.

With all your experimentation of it last year, will you be doing anything differently this year when it comes to your setup or your operation?

I upgraded to two Redmax 8500 blowers WoW they move some air.
Got a 48" z-turn with blower.
I am hoping that jobs go faster so more money for me!!!

willshome, very nice man, looks real good..when I worked in lower Michigan we had a 24' box truck that my brother modified to accept the vac so it attached to the truck..like two hitch mounts you slid it into..and he came up with a way to unload it (cant dump) so they had a drum that was permanently attached to the truck somehow on the back right below the doors and a strong mess type tarp attached to the drum, an electric motor to turn the drum, and we would run the tarp to the front of the box then up to the top and back to the back on the cieling where it was permanently attached there too...we had pins & rods we put in on the corners or where the tarp changed directions on the front end of the box, top & bottom... anyway, when it was full we would pull the pins out, open the doors, latch them and hit the switch for the drum and the drum roll the leaves out as it rolled the tarp up...was really neat and saved us a sh** load of time loading & unloading. Its been a while since I was down there but I will see if my brother can snap a few photo's for me...
