    Looking to purchase a walk behind leaf blower. Whats a good choice? Small commerical lawn/parking lot accounts is what I will use it for.
    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Don't get under 8 hp. The top two are Little Wonder and Billy Goat. I prefer the Little Wonder myself, but there are pros and cons to each one.

    I have 13hp little wonder and its a great blower, just gets a bit heavy after a full day. On a parking lot you can rock with those because they will blow 10' at a time. best luck any questions ask

    I have an 8hp Fradan. I would rather use a backpack and

    my Walker GHS. Easier than pushing a blower. Ed

    that is a great and interesting point. I used (use) my push blower very little. I would rather windrow it with the Z. It it more thorough (cleaner), and alot less work. Mainly,...it is more thorough. On top of tht, it is grinding it up much more so it packs faster and more on the truck.

    I have a 16 hp Billy Goat gear drive. Combined with the backpacks, mulching turf tiger and triple bagger tt, makes a good set up for leaves.

    I use Little Wonders with the 9hp and 13hp honda. I would definately go with the 13hp alot more power than the 9.
