I am just plain not going to run the 500+ pound "bolster buster" 2 stage Bolens blower on my large frames. Has anyone come up with an alternate brand that is lighter and can be modified to work? I found a 48" belt drive craftsman, but it spins in the wrong direction-- on top of needing to be converted to shaft drive. Only way I see to do that is with a cost prohibitive direction reversing reduction gearbox. Any ideas?
