    Does anyone have the aftermarket wheel and bracket for their little wonder walkbehind that allows the front wheel to swivel?

    If so, where did you purchase it and how much was it?

    I have a Little Wonder HPV and I have been looking ever since I bought the stupid thing. Please let me know if you find one. Thanks :waving:

    I had the swivel wheel on order for our Billygoat but cancelled the order. We seldom use the front wheel, and our unit is 13HP so it is heavy.

    Seems to me if you had the swivel wheel you wouldn't be able to let the blower run with out holding onto it. When moving large piles of leaves I will leave the blower in front of the pile while I blow through it with a backpack blower. The dealer told me about the wheel but I figured the blower would just spin in circles if left alone, especially on pavement. I know it has a locking feature on it just doesn't seem like a justifiable purchase to me.

    My father had an old Walker deck frame. He cut a swivel wheel off of it and welded it to his Little Wonder. It works great. Just an idea to get you thinking.

    How do you seldom use the front wheel?

    On the Billygoat it has lever to direct the air flow, so most of the time we have the front wheel off the ground when we are turning.

    I may end up just leaving it. Ill see how it works out, no way I am paying $100 for a swivel caster. If I really need one, Ill get a caster elsewhere and install it...
    Cant wait for leaves!
