Don't like the color...should be chrome or black...I would lace it with bungee cords in case the blower breaks loose on you.

I think its a hi-tech/centrifugal/kinetic shield of some sort...note how the heavier port side bracing ties in with the rotation of the blower...its not all that sophisticated, really. Don't think its as heavy duty as a lawn-mower part.

It might be an automatic air filter disposal... We know how PQ is around mechanical things....

I've seen those advertised at Rube Goldberg Industries (RGI.com) for @35 bucks, if anybody is interested. But I just checked and they show out-of-stock. PQ got the last one available.

Actually, you are 100% correct! Last year I had to replace the bag part of my grass catcher. As I recall that is almost exactly what the frame piece looked like w/o the bag on it! I just got a million dollar Idea! I wonder if Craftsman will sellf me a dozen of these, all I need now is a cool ebay buisness name!

After looking at the picture of the lawn mower, I believe we have a winner. The lawn needed mowing, PQ wanted to go for a drive, and he combined the two.
