Anyone ever think of making some blades with some shape to really move some air.... Then you could just blow all your fall leaves while riding your tractor with the deck up?

So i have seen 3 pt hitch debris blowers... Jacobsen makes one actually. I have also seen front mount blowers... But never mid mount.

I'm thinking you would probably have to box in the bottom of the deck with a hole or holes centered on the blade shafts to get real air flow. But the thought of taking old worn out blades, heating and turning the ends 90 degree's is an interesting idea I think.

Maybe a squirrel cage ran on a mule drive in the front would be an idea as well.

Like Bryan 110, I just chop them up with the mower.My great uncle used to use a mower with a bagger attachment that he had modified to blow int a trailer behind the tractor. It looked an awful lot life a forage harvester in use. He had quite the imagination.
