This is really cool! Has anyone seen one?

 

 

10857737_10152892042959543_5786581798720

 

CC 100 that was modified by the Florida 
state mosquito commission back in the 1960s. I suspect that few people 
have ever seen a Cub Cadet with that kind of implement! I got the image 

from the Fall/Winter '06 edition of "Wing Beats" - the official 
publication of the Florida Mosquito Control Association. The device is 
described as an "aspirator" with no other information. I am guessing 
that it is designed to suck mosquitoes up from the grass and put them in 
a collection bin/bag for identification. I contacted the magazine editor 
who was kind enough to send me the image, but he knew no more about it 
than I do.

bgkid2966 , Nice find .

I've seen a lot of unusual cub attachments , but not that one .

That has to be the strangest one I've ever seen and I've seen quite a few....LOL.

I'd like to post your picture and description on a cub sight I belong to .

Is that OK or is that against this sites rules ?

I found it on Facebook. You can use it as far as I am concerned. I am hoping someone here has seen it before.

UMMM! Was wondering where the leaves and junk were bagged up when first looking, THEN, the misquito note?? Huh? What a waste of time and money in my opinion. Guess scientists need strange tools? Ha!

"The smaller model was mounted on a 10 h.p. single cylinder garden tractor (Fig. 2). The intake was 28" wide 24" deep and 21" high and was hinged across the front. No runner was required as  the elevation of the leading edge was controlled by a cable between a driver operated lever and the top of the intake. The catching unit is mounted vertically directly above the intake and the air then turns horizontally through a length of 10" flexible rubber hose to the blower. All sections were permanently joined. A special trailer fitted with ramps was used to transport the aspirator to the sampling areas. "(SEPTEMBER, 1967 Mosquito News Fig. 2. — Garden tractor aspirator.)
