    The blower listed above is $3900 here in the States. To pricy I would think unless you do a lot of leaves. They don't list the CFM on Walker's website for the smaller blower but I believe its around $2000. The new optimax little wonder blowers should do that job just nice.

    The only blowers I see used on parking lots are the 13hp WB size except the guys with the truck mounted vac sweepers. You could move a lot of stuff with two 13HP WB like Billygoat or the Wonder.

    Sorry guys, I went back and looked through my literature and the ProBlow blower http://www.selbro.com/ Is the blower that is more affordable than the blower made by Walker and the Buffalo Turbine blower. As far as performance the Buffalo Turbine is the best. The Selbro Problow and the Blower made by Walker are very similar in performance. The Problow is cheaper than the Walker model and you can control left or right discharge with the flip of a lever.

    Yea I was talkin about Emmet Equipment!

    The Buffalo Turbine blower is the best blower for your Walker. I paid $ 4100.00 in 2004 and have had zero problems with mine. It moves a lot of leaves in a hurry and the nozzel will rotate 360 deg. Air flow is listed up to 9500 CFM. It will knock you off your feet. Best part is, no more pushing a big blower up and down a hill.
