sadly you have no idea what you are talking about, in no way shape or form is the little wonder "just like" the hurricane blower, the biggest little wonder with the 14hp only produces 3000cfm, the hurricane produces 5000cfm if my math is correct thats a mear 2000cfm more air. no big deal right?

only poor people who cant afford the big money blowers call them over rated. now please stop bothering me with your jelious jibberish.

I just got the big hurricane blower dropped off at my house this afternoon. I've got a big clean-up to do tomorrow with it, so I'll let you know how it does. I ran it around my yard tonight, but I didn't have many leaves so I couldn't truly see how this thing does with big piles.

def let me know, i am seriously considering picking the bigger one up next year. only thing that makes me alittle leary is the fact its like a z-mower in terms of pumps and wheel motors, those get expensive then they decide to break.

Wow Ben everyone is jealous of you!

And just so Turf Commando knows I own a 14 hp little wonder with the exact same motor as the Goldpros hurricane blower. I have used mine and also used his blower. The hurricane hands down blows 2 or 3 times harder.
