    recently I picked up a couple of comm. accounts. They have large open parking lots. Since its only myself, blowing seems to take a little long. Was thinking of a wb blower but dont really know what to look for... engine size etc. These are Saturday jobs, so the lots are wide open b/c the businesses are closed. Stihl BR400 is screaming for help!

    New or used doesnt matter.

    Little Wonder blower 8HP or higher. I have a 2003 Little Wonder blower with a 10HP Briggs Intek I/C engine and it will move anything!!! It is a fantastic machine!!!

    The Bad Boy LW's are Best On Hard Surfaces, Parking Lots and Such.....the Billy Goats are Lighter and Have the Operator Controlled Discharge...Much Easier to Operate on Smaller Turf Areas.
