    Do you have a clutch on your blower Todd? I don't and I was wondering if anyone has a way to disengage the blower.
    I was thinking of something like a rider lawnmower has with a lever pulley system?

    A blower is a high load on a clutch. They do make electrically closed clutches that could withstand it but generally it wouldn't be done because 1. They are costly and 2. A blower generally will outlast by far any other component of the system. They generally just don't care how many hours they run (assuming they are even just minimally cared for)

    Yup, I was just thinking about fuel savings when pressure washing w/o recovery

    No, but I do lift the lid off the tank which removes the load from the blower
