    I have 2 giant vac blowers that work fine, but are a pain to manuever around the leaves. The local guy has a few 13HP force blowers he's unloading for $1300 each. Supposedly they are $1600. I like what Ive seen with the movable chute. I need at least one new blower this year to replace an older one I have. Is the price good enough to buy more?

    how would manuvering the billy goats be so much better? I wouldnt spend the money if i already have running blowers.

    Thats a great deal! I just paid 1100.00 for my 9hp. They do seem a little lighter than our Little Wonder. And that 1100.00 is after a 150.00 rebate they were offering a few weeks back.

    The chute is directable. So you dont have to push the machine around as much. Lifting on side to get the top of pile, rocking side to side to get a hole in pile, etc.

    Is it movable by the handle?

    I was under the impression that it was. Kinda like a snowblower chute. Ill have to look again.

    I just saw their video. It goes up and down but its not enough for me to scrap my running giant vac to switch.
