    I've run both and I strongly recommend the Force. I equate it to comparing a ZTR and a lawn tractor. The both do the same thing but one is cutting edge, the other one is past technology.

    Have you checked out Parker blowers? They are supposed to be some of the best.

    I love my little wonders. 8hp and 13hp.
    I do have to say the dixie chopper with a blower unit instead of a mowing deck kicks some serious a$$.

    I do not know the price tag on the Force. However, I do love my little wonder 10HP. Thing is a Beast.

    For several years the Little Wonder blowers are considered the best of the best. No other design had been able to accomplish what the Little wonder does. They compared the little wonder 13hp to the billy goat 16hp and the little wonder blew circles around it. The dispersion of the little wonder is unmatched. The new force is an excellent blower and is equal to the little wonder of equal hp but the force is 20lbs lighter. This is shown on the billy goat website. In response, Little Wonder has their new optimax line out now that has 30% more flow but is still heavier then the force.

    I run little wonders. Wet leaves to stone and sticks on parking lot that we clean. Blows debris, cleans surface, just a great machine. All 3 units are 13hp honda's.

    Looked at the force - tried it, blew well but since our fleet is LW - I decided to stick with it. Side by side - I really didn't notice much of a difference b/t the 2.

    i have a 9hp Gravely (Little wonder) blower on the floor and if you compare it to a 9hp Suburu Force blower........there is no comparison. Force hands down.

    The 13hp force will move a cinderblock. We tried it.

    I myself have not seen the force in action but have 2 13hp little wonders and they are awesome. I would probably go wonder just because of the 5 year commercial warranty.
