???'s on Billy Goat blower

I am going to look at a used Billy Goat blower that has the metal housing and was wondering if they are as good as the newer force II blowers. Does anyone know when they started the plastic housing? The blower I am going to look at has a 13HP Honda engine.

I really preferr my plastic housing force 2 over my metal ones. The only diff. for me it the plastic is slot easier to push.

Well I ended up doing a 180 and bought a Little Wonder blower with a 9HP Honda that is in good mechanical condition just needs some cleaning. I hope I will be satisfied with the purchase.
