I have both. Most often I use my wheeled blower for blowing leaves out of a gate. I'll move the leaves to the wheeled blower with my BR600 and then let the Little Wonder blow them through the gate and out into the woods. I have used the Little Wonder when the BR600 just starts rolling the leaf line over. Then I get the LW off the trailer and finish the job off. It is much more of a workout to use but the power difference isn't even close. It not the horsepower that turns the impeller, it's the torque and that old Briggs commercial engine has at least 3 or 4 times the torque of any backpack blower. It has a large steel impeller that probably weighs more than any backpack blower made. Man when that things winds up you can feel the power.

Jrco makes a mount for the front of your ZT for a wb blower, that seems to be the best option for a wb blower.Has anyone tried that?

One thing I have been thinking about is that you must have a set price on a job or you are going backwards. if you get faster and faster Bigger ZT, Bigger Blower, and better Trimmers that I did this year you must go higher and higher per. hour. I am at $50 per. hour now at what point will a customer fall over dead.

Good lord dude, you're hopeless, absolutely hopeless.

Trust me when I say you're not the "best" at running a BP, I'm 200lbs+ round about 6'ft tall and can still walk foot over foot on a 4" wide curb while wearing a BP. I can switch directions on the fly from forward, backward or side to side without looking at where I'm going, it's all by feel. I'm not trying to sound like I'm the best, just stating facts.

And please for the love of all that's good LEARN TO SPELL!!
