    Someone has way too much money and resources on their hands, but this is pretty damn cool!

  2. Where were the leaf blowers GETTING their air? The installed the firewall in front of them, and had the hatch closed. Did the put an air intake in there somewhere, or were they perhaps choking them off breathing-wise? Cool show regardless - good find - it was very entertaining to watch!

    Five leaf blowers plus all that nice piping and fittings cost more than a complete 6-71 blower setup

    They do some dyno runs with leaf chargers about 10 mins in.

    I recently learned that electric leaf blowers are an awesome tool to have when laying lots of carpet....
