    I bought a 9 hp force, I used it for less than 2 minutes and compared it to my old 11hp giant vac (16 years old). They seemed to be very comparable and I want something more powerful. So.... The dealer will take it back and I can get either a 13hp force or a 13hp little wonder. Which one do I go with?

    the force blower is made by billygoat, so I will say 1 vote for billygoat so far.

    I'd say go with the Goat. If you don't mind me asking how much did the 9HP run you?

    Force blower by billygoat. I've got the 13hp and although its a little heavy, you can't beat it!

    1075 for the force 9hp with a parking brake kit, and 75 mail in rebate. 1499 for the 13hp no rebate. Pricey for the 13hp, but I hope it will be worth it.

    We tested the 9hp and took it back and got the 13hp honda Billygoat and we are very happy with it. The 9hp didn't seem a lot bigger than the big back packs that we had. The Billygoat has a lever actuated deflector for directing the air and that is very useful. Keep in mind the 13hp is heavy and might be difficult on lawns, we only use our on pavement.
