Oh I doubt that. You can make a working hoverboard out of plywood, innertube, duct tape & an electric leafblower. No need to use the big motor.


I just happen to have dead leaf blower (assuming the reason it's dead is something minor, i.e. not the motor).
Make it happen.

Dang, and I just opted to tell my wife to get an electric knife and mixer instead of a leaf blower with her work incentive points. I was under the impression that there is nothing more futile than a leaf blower. When I worked for the city one summer, though, I got to use one of the big gas powered, backpack, ones. It was awesome, made me feel like a ghostbuster.

I swear by our dust buster. It's the only way I can convince my step-daughter to clean up the guinea pig refuse that the little sucker kicks out of it's cage.
