    I was looking at little wonder blowers when I found a new one for sale at www.toolsteal.com for $692 8 hp brigs. This seems like a good deal for a new blower.

    stevesmowing,

    Seems like a pretty good deal to me!
    I personally would get something with a Honda motor on it.
    But for $692.00 You could almost get two for the price of a 9 h.p. Honda Little Wonder.
    I say go for it.

    There is a little wonder 8hp for sale localy for asking $475 but its a 1994 with a brigs I/C. I found one just like it on e-bay for $150 does anyone have experience with the older style little wonders? I was thinking on maybe making a low offer like $150 or $175.

    I have the 10 hp model. The 8 hp model has the smaller fan on it, so it will not have the same amount of power. Most of the little wonders that are sold to LCO are the 10 hp model. I love mine. Good luck. I got mine when I was 16. Never had a problem with it since.

    Steve, I've got 2 of the 8hp B&S and love them. True, they aren't Honda (and I love Honda) but I couldn't justify the price of the Honda's as little as I use them. We use them in the fall a lot but during the rest of the year I really only use them on a couple of commercial properties.
