If it's one like this... You won't find specifications anywhere, they are very old models and Billy Goat won't hardly release the specifications for their new blowers, hope you didn't pay too much for it.

yeah its that model but different engine. I paid $120, cant complain really.

Its safe to say about 1500 cfm?

I see most walk behinds are 140-180mph and 1200-2000 cfm.

If you wanted specs similar to a new blower you should have bought one. You have a antique blower hoping for new blow performance. Use it and be happy. With that price, it's hard to go wrong.

Wow, I hadn't seen one of those in 20 years. I personally used to weld those center bars when I was in high school. I've got no idea of the performance numbers of that unit, and I don't even know where to start. We've had 2 operating system changes since then and finding hard copy of that would be the proverbial needle in the haystack.

It's in GREAT shape and if it works for your needs, those are all the performance numbers you need.

I used it in wet leaves today. We had snow last night only about 1/2 inch or so. It was about even with a ebz8000 and ebz7150 together. The billy goat pushed half the pile and the backpacks pushed the other. I was impressed until the pull cord broke in my hand. I would say its around 1300-1600 cfm based on todays use.

Those arent specs from new blowers. Those are 15-20 yr old giant vac and little wonders. Even a pos mtd blower pushes out that.
