Here is an idea for you it's not what I built it for but it could work for what you are wanting to do with it

Thankfully lawn vac's aren't needed in SD when you live in the country. Wind takes care of the problem in short order.

I have a Bolens Vac system here and they use a pulley that attaches to the blade spindle nearest the chute. I think the pulley belt drives a blower. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in let me know and I will look at it again. This would eliminate the need for another motor. Been setting in the hangar for years.
