p.s. the shaft is usually 3-31/64 or 3 1/2 for honda replacement engines. Will

these fit on the billy goat? thank you!

I'll give you the sizes that were are currently using. The Briggs and Stratton has a 3.660" crankshaft. The Honda has a 2 27/32 crankshaft. If you are going to repower with a different engine you'll need to change to that respective impeller. The Briggs and Honda impellers are not interchangable. You'll also have to remove the spacers that are used under the Briggs engine for a Honda conversion or visa versa.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Question Mr Force

Im trying to find a dealer in my area that actualy has some demo models, or at least floor models. We are looking at the debris loaders and blowers and the dealers that are listed in this area seem not to carry actual models. I was wondering if you might know of one that does. Thanks Bob

Leapin lizards,

I'm sorry for your difficulty in finding a dealer with product to see. Obviously it's frustrating for us as a manufacturer to have customers looking for a dealer who's stocking product and not easily finding one. PM me your zip code and I'll get you at least one nearby truckloader stocking dealer or a rep who can get you a unit to try. Let me know.

Bob,

The Distributor who covers that area is recommending you go and see Chad Little at 181 Pleasant Street Route 1 Brunswick, ME. You can call them as well at (207) 729-6716. Please let me know if there are any problems. Thanks!
