    How does the 9hp compare to the larger hp motors with the giant vac and Little wonder housings? Is the 9 force just as good as a higher hp older style machine? What are your thoughts on this? Thanks

    We tested the 9hp on BillyGoat and took it back and got the 13HP. I didn't see a big difference between a big backpack and the 9hp. The 13HP Billygoat is definitely a monster blower, bigger than 2 backpacks. On the other hand it is heavy. We use it on parking lots mainly.

    Is your 13hp a force blower or just the regular quiet blower?
