Has anyone seen the new Billy Goat blowers with a 16 H.P. I heard they go for about $3,000. Does anyone have one?

I have a 9 hp Honda Little Wonder. Super power, I don't see much need for any more power, and we have some huge leaf cleanup jobs here in Virginia.

The Billy Goat is self propelled.<p>Sure, the Little Wonder 9 & 13hp are the best, most powerful in their class, but pushing and pulling them around is fatigue inducing.<p>I would be inclined to get a 13hp Little Wonder and mount it on a &quot;Blower Buggy&quot; from JRCO.<p>Use the blower to blow and your mower to propel it.

Lazer, that is exactly what I plan on doing with my 9Hp L wonder this year. I have plans on doing some &quot;stone type&quot; modifications to make my own to put on the front of my ZTR.

Stone, Have you used the shredit mower blades? If so how well do they work? And are they worth the $50 (each) price tag?<p><br>
