Agreed. I own the BG 13 hp and a reverse would be really nice. Also, a variable speed transmission ala Toro's personal pace would help with productivity. These units struggle on side hills because of the high center of gravity. What about some sort of foldable wheel system akin to training wheels on a bicycle to help with hillside stability?

That's fair, thanks. I'll pass it on to review options.

The only really effective thing for a high center of gravity is either lower the center or widen the unit footprint. A commercial version of a kickstand or a wider stance on larger unit is something to consider.

I had a hate love affair with gumballs.

I loved to hate them. Until I got a BR 600 BP blower. It digs them out of the grass quickly. Once they are free they move with the rest of the leaves and debris.

Never used a WB blower so I can not compare them to a good BP blower for moving gumballs.
