    i am going and looking at the 13hp little wonder and billy goat. i can get great deals on both right now but i am just stuck on what to get. i like the idea of the billy being able to move the air up and down real quick but is that a pain when not holding on to it ?

    I have the 9 hp billy goat and it is bad ass. The chute be able to move up and down with hand control is awesome. It helps alot when you are moving big piles. I would go for the billy goat, the 13hp has to be bad ass

    I think "Little Wonder" makes a better product!

    We operate with the lil wonder 13hp products equipped with Honda engines, have not had any issues,we love that you can project the air stream,forward or side.Looking at the billy goat newer plastic composite style blower it looked extremely large,yes it is nice to have a finger tip controller but thats not everything,at least they are U.S. built and good dealer support.:waving::waving:

    i have used the little wonder when the air is coming out the front i think it looses alot of power when you do that anyway.

    With the Little wonder you don't have to move the nozzle up and down to help move the piles. The split flow nozzle does it for you. Yes the Billy Goat won't rust but I have never had a problem with rust on my Little Wonder. Both excellent machines but Little wonder has the best flow pattern in the industry. Try one side by side and you will find out within a minute. The first thing you will notice on the billy goat is that you will have to move the nozzle to keep the leaves from blowing back on you. With the little wonder you will not see much blow back at all. Really a big difference.

    There are 2 locking mechanisms on the Billy Goats...one on the handle (pin and hole) and a knob on the chute itself to lock it in any position. Very easy to lock when you don't need to "flip" the chute up and down.
