13HP Billy Goat Force or 14HP Little Wonder Optimax?
I'm on the fence between a 13HP Force (Honda engine) for $1,499 + tax and a 14HP LW (Subaru engine) for $1,460 + tax...
I have a 10HP LW right now and it's been a beast- I want something even more powerful though- hence upping the HP. What I'd like to know is- which one will be more powerful? Weight also plays a factor wit the LW weighing in at almost 20LBS more than the force.
My Dad and I are worried about the durability of the Force under rigorous commercial use.... how are the housings holding up for those of you who have had them a while? Also- how well do they "dig" into turf to get up matted, wet debris and thatch?
What do you guys think???
