    Default Re: Mid-mount... blower? Does such an animal exist?

    I have the grass collector with MMM powered blower on my 60" MMM. I do not use it to collect grass but it will chop up and collect lots of leaves before it must be emptied.

    Yes, you must remove any three point mounted implement to use it, as the grass collector mounts behind the tractor.

    Hmmm. I wonder if you got a MMM and modified it so it had blades that were bent 90 deg so they are running vertical instead of horizontal like usual for a mower. Then you have created a centrifugal fan. How well it works...dunno. Would probably want to modify the output chute to direct it better, and possibly enclose the bottom with some sheet metal (leaving an opening in the center for air inlet). If you have a mid PTO and can find a mower to modify that is old and abused, it might be worth a try...
