    I was about to buy a new billygoat 13hp honda blower. Its about $1200.
    I just came across a 03 Billygoat 9hp robin eng. less than 10hrs on it residential use for $700. Is there a huge difference between the 13 and 9hp models??????? Thanks

    I have the 10 horse briggs model and have no complaints. I was told that for the difference in price it's not that significant, haven't used the 13 horse though.

    The 13hp Will Give you More Blowing Power Definitely but remember it's Also Very Heavy & Difficult to push up slopes, Trailer Gates, Around Turf etc...Perfect for Large Area Hard Surfaces & Mounting on a Z...

    9hp Subaru/Robin is a Sweet Engine...Light...Quiet...Powerful....Very Similar but Slightly More Advanced than the Honda.... Operator Adjustable Discharge Makes it Great for Light Snow Removal Too !
