    My friend is going to buy one for the Fall to help me w/ my Clean Ups. I am going to be doing about 10 Clean ups with lots of Deciduous Trees ( Maple, Oaks). Do you think this would be enough Power if we had the 8HP and Redmax BP's.. or should we go higher in HP??

    8hp Little wonder has plenty of power. I have also had mine for 2 yrs, and its been great.

    I have an 8 hp on my LW and it has worked out well. I would never get anything less than 8. I would like to try out the 10 hp model sometime.

    How much did you guys pay for you 8hp Little Wonder. I'm looking at getting something like that for this fall, but I haven't checked around yet to get any prices. I just want to get an idea to see if it's really something I should look into, thanks...

    I don't know about the 8hp we didn't think it was much better than a Echo PB650. We went with the 13HP BillyGoat and it definitely has the power. We mainly use it to clean big parking lots, but it would be fine on leaves. I like the chute that you can control with a hand lever. It was around $1K.

    I have one, and it works very well. I paid about 800 for it and that was around 6 to 8 years ago, I believe.

    I have an old B&S powered LW and it does fine. I bought mine used for $250. If I were buying a new one I would buy the best/highest HP I could afford.
