    Which blower do I get. I currently have an old 11hp giant vac. I am considering the force blower because the technology is new and seems impressive. However the fact that the technology is new also scares me. I do not want to be a test rat and work the bugs out for a company. What do you recommend for a new blower and would you go with the new billy goat force blowers? Thanks

    We have a Little Wonder with a 13 Honda. It works great and is built to last. I dont know much about the force blowers. But I bet being made of mostly plastic it is lighter than my Little Wonder.

    Re: weight.

    The 13hp honda force is 2 lbs lighter than the 10hp LW. I tested a force a couple weeks ago and "WOW" is the only thing that comes to mind. it is an absolute animal.

    I saw a force blower at the county fair this weekend. It had the 9 hp subaru engine on it. It looked pretty big and kinda bulkier than the little wonders. It looks like it will move a lot of air!
