OK, I saw the thread about a Billy Goat Blower and he didn't put in pics, so here's my new Billy Goat Blower. Bought it this weekend after I blew up my old Billy Goat for the 3rd time. This is the new Force blower with the 13hp Honda. Blows like crazy. I ordered the optional parking brake for it. I'm looking forward to actually being able to have a blower that doesn't roll away when you are using it.

I was just in Home Depot and you can rent one for a day for $62.00. I will have to try one out in the fall. Looks nice!

Dude, those are so mean looking. I want one so bad, but have been waiting because I could use it but I didn't really "need" it. Hopefully, I'll get one soon. I'm glad to hear that you like it and good luck with it.

Yea, big blowers are a necessity in my area. We get so many leaves. Some guys carry 4 or 5 push blowers on their truck in the fall. I've only used this for spring cleanups so far and this coupled with my JRCO dethatcher cut our spring cleanup time drastically.

I bought one last year with a 9hp Subaru last fall and so far so good. I like it more than our Little Wonder for a couple reasons....lighter, seems quieter and I love the trigger nozzle! You'll love it.

I looked at the 9 and the 13 side by side. The 13 is twice the blower. It has so much more volume. I didn't want any disappointments. The 9 was $1,100 and the 13 was $1,600. I'm already spending over $1k, the extra $500 won't matter in the long run. Just get the best and don't look back. I'm sure when the leaves fly this year I will thank myself for choosing the bigger one.
