    There's actually another option besides the blower buggy for mounting a wheel blower on a mower. It was designed for the Little Wonders but the manufacturer says it will work with the Billy Goat Quiet Blows too. The blower actually hitches directly to a hitch mount attached to the mower that hold it up in the air...no wheels. They never got back to me whether it would work with my mower though. It's about $200. It's called the Wonder Hitch.

    I have a wonder hitch. Works great but it takes weight off the rear of the mower and tends to make it hard to back up sometimes

    All I have is a belt-driven metro.......would probably work nice on a hydro walk-behind...or I could just go in circles all day.....lol

    too high off the ground....same reason i chose the little wonder over a billy goat, the chute is lower to the ground, which does a better job cleaning, vs a billy goat has the air pushing down at the ground first.

    Ya that does look a little high off the ground.

    Daryl, I adjusted the chute down a couple turns and while I was there, sure as **** the front bolts needed a couple turns, thanks for the heads up. You woulda been proud today, had the goat going, back pack on and a rake, feeding the loader.....talk about burning the candle at both ends...but wow I was making huge progress. Got over half the cemetery done and it was no where near the nightmare I thought it was going to be.

    Glad it's working out for you. Yeah, hardware tends to loosen a lot on mine...anything that isn't a Nylock.

    I find the handheld chute control really handy but wish you could lock it into more than one postion...you kind of have to compromise on the adjustment between it scouring when locked into position, being able to point down a slope and being able to point it up to blow over a wall or not blast a car in a parking lot with sand. I couldn't figure out how to lock mine at first....had to put my face under there and take a look to see how it worked.

    Lol...well it only locks in one postion, which is like in the middle of it's range....how do i explain this....squeeze it and then pull it like you were trying to pull it off it's pivot from the end of the handle. It will lock in place. Not like anything I've ever used before.
