    I'm a cheap bastard. I have a feeling that little 1.5hp at walmart for $30 isnt going to cut it :hsd:

    what do you all recommend? I see they have a little attachment kit too for sale :kdubb:

    I have a 3 hp Craftsman that also converts to a 160 mph blower. Held up well the last two years and I use it daily.
