Any ideas on making a walk behind leaf blower with two battery bays?

I'm looking at my snow blower (cant wait to use it) and couldn't help but think if there was a way to copy the design into a walk behind leaf blower. 800 - 1000 cfm out of a walk behind blower. essentially using two backpack blower motors where the snow blower auger is And tunneling them into a single exhaust port. And with two 7.5 ah batteries would definitely catch the attention of people who have large open yards with lots of leaf debris. I'm no engineer...just a dreamer. Anyone wanna follow me on twitter @sparklawns id appreciate the support!

There is that idea now, but why not up it to 1500 CFM or more with a variable speed throttle and turbo boost?

Yea I mean dream big right lol but I figured if the technology for the backpack blower already exists, they could again combine two into a Y pipe and essentially double the output, max being 600 for the backpack so 1200 for a walk behind, on wheels with two 7.5 batteries, seemed like a no brainer. I can see many people arguing that it would cost too much, but again if people are willing to pay 400 for a barebone snow blower, im sure a high cfm blower could be price pointed to around the same. Even if they simply use the lawn mower brushed motor and position it vertically with a fan to work like a traditional walk behind blower, i just feel the dual bay design of the snow blower has so many possabilities
