Anyone own Self Propelled Little Wonder Blower?

Curious if anyone owns a Little Wonder Self Propelled blower and how they like it? I own an older 8hp LW that has served me well, but is getting pretty beat, plus seems like it gets heavier every year. My dealer doesn't have any self propelled ones in stock and will have to special order it.

I don't own one but turned down buying one because I was told by my dealer that you cannot free wheel them easily. In other words, its hard to roll when the drive system is disengaged. Having it hills would be nice, but still, this one thing discouraged me.

Why would you want to "free wheel" it?

Echo do you have the swivel wheel on the front? 2.5 mph good enough for reverse? Anything you don't like?

Yeah and I like it.

Plenty good enough and it's great on hills. I wouldn't own one without it.

Electric start would be nice

Thank you echo! Think I am going to go with the 9hp. Extra 270 cfm for the 13hp does not seem worth it.

Never used a 9 but the 14 is an animal. Pretty sure the difference in cfm's is 1000+, not 270.

I can only imagine what the 18 can do.
