    Does anyone have the prices I would expect to pay for a little wonder blower.

    8hp with a B&S Engine?

    other models would be appreciated as well, 6hp, 10hp, 11hp. Thanks!

    If you are going to buy this kind of blower---go for the best--no weenie power--a Little Wonder with the 13 hp Honda--you don't have to run it at full throttle. Lists at about 1499 but if you have a good dealer relationship you could get it for maybe 1400 even.

    alright, so basically i can expect to pay $850.00 for a 10hp with B&S engine. I think I will go for the 10hp over the 8hp, might as well go for the best if im going to get one. Although, I dont think I could justify the 11HP Honda.

    A major difference will be that the Briggs is very hard to start, especially when cold! The Honda will start on one or 2 easy pulls every time and last a lot longer than the Briggs! Try thinking long term and superior performance-not trying to save nickel and dime and getting much less in the process!

    I have a 10 HP Little Wonder blower that is 1 year old W/ a 10 HP Briggs Intek I/C engine and it starts on the first pull every time even when it is cold. It has 150 Hrs on it with NO problems at all!! Briggs Intek I/C engines are just as good if not better than Honda.

    thats my thought also. im not goign to be putting 40 hours a week on these motors, and if I have to pull the cord an extra 1 or 2 times, its worth saving 200 dollars over. i cant really see a good reason to spend 200 more just for a different brand engine, B&S has never failed me.

    Get the ten horse and you will love it. I couldn't live with out mine in the fall. If it got stolen, I would buy another one in a second.
