    Think I've identified the cannon in the back, it looks to me like a Stihl, somewhere in the range of the BR 800 backpack blower . . .

    There were 3 gas powered tools in the bed. The "cannon" is a big backpack leaf blower. All okay. It took about an hour to recover the Gator and get the tools running. We drained all the gator fluids and left everything sit open overnight, then got it running the next morning. Cost us some oil and filters, all of which needed replacing anyway. And I mentioned fabbing a snorkel kit. The foam seats ought to dry out by June or July

    Tip from YouTube, pull the foam out and park a car on it overnight . . .
