    It seems blowers are always being tested and compared against one another. Prior to today I had a shindaiwa eb630, redmax 8000 and a giant vac 8hp push blower (about 10 years old). Today I added the new Force Blower 9hp to the blower family. This blower seems to have a lot of power to it. I filled a recycling bin with 60lbs of weights and it slid it across the floor. I can't wait to get it out in the field and do more more testing. Let me know what questions you have and what tests you'd like me to try.

    Nice, but I'll stick to Little Wonder WB blowers with STEEL housings :dancing: ! Seems like most of that thing IS plastic :laugh: ! Plastic is better for BP blowers for sure, but NOT for WB blowers that get run into things etc :nono: .

    I wouldn't buy one just because of the engine!

    Robin engines are too hard to get parts for and they are really expensive! They should have gone with a more main stream engine!

    The price of a robin engine is the same as a briggs in one of the catalogs I was looking at today.
