Nice!

I just picked up a leaf blower with a bad carb that I'm thinking about turning into a vac-cart. It's a 5hp walk behind blower/vac/chipper. It kind of sucks as a blower... Maybe it'll suck better...

I've got a line on a free tractor that I'm going to rob the front axle from it to build a cart.

Default Home built leaf vacuum

This is an update on the leaf vacuum I built a couple years ago. I made three rubber paddles to bolt on to the impeller and the vacuum has increased three fold. The paddles match the curvature of the housing and the increased vacuum is amazing. It also handles leaves better that are damp. Jim

Do you have any pics or further detail on the rubber paddles you made?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
