Red face Gas prices made me repower...

The first fill of the season was $3.04/gallon for 93 octane. I couldn't handle thinking about what th season would be like so I;m repowering with something that should burn less fuel although it's got a huffer on top!

My new economical blower motor!

Sorry Bob, I just didn't think you could build one like this.
