Super Leaf Blower Built From Silage Blower
"I removed the infeed mechanism and took the rest to a local welding shop. They removed the tongue and installed a 3-pt. hitch hookup. They also modified the frame so the air outlet would blow along the ground.
"This leaf blower works even better than I expected. We live in the woods and have tons of leaves in the fall. This machine has really cut down the time it takes to clean them out of the yard.
"I pull it behind my 45 hp tractor, but I think any tractor with 20 or more horsepower would work fine.
"Total cost was $525 - $80 for the blower and the rest to the welding shop for fabrication work. New commercial leaf blowers with similar capacity sell for about $800 but are not built as heavy as mine."
