It's the best out there. Other threads have already discussed this. I have a 9 Honda and now wish I would have bought the 8 B&S. About half the price around here.

I own the 8hp Little wander. Theres not a blower out there that can beat it! Ive tried just about all of them! Because of LW's design no one can compete!

billygoat

have u looked at the quiet blow push blowers by billygoat, like the 1004 model it has a blower deflector at the handle which comes in handy. it is easier to push then the little wonder i feel. i also got a good deal so that helps. the little wonder was somewhere like $900 for a 8hsp briggs and my bllygoat was $732 for the new 10hsp briggs. either machine will do the job i just stating what i have

I like the Billy Goat the best. (only my opinion) It is lighter making it easier to push. Buy the one you like best.

man I got the 10hp billygoat and I love it. Mo matter the size of the pile, it will blow it down, wet or dry

The 9hp will suit just about anyones needs perfectly. I have blown leaves from one clients lawn across the street and onto the curbline of another under just the right fall conditions. Gotta love those fall winds when they work with you - LOL!!!

Make sure that no matter what you decide to purchase that you have pneumatic tires all the way around!!!

Nothing more frustrating than to see those childish plastic wheels on the front of a commercial product. WHAT A JOKE!!!

Before you buy, go to Lesco to check out their new Green machine or monster or something like that. It is awesome and will outperform all of them.Check it out!!!
