    I’m looking at the Billy Goat and Little Wonder wheeled blower (9hp and 13hp) both with Honda engines.

    My son uses a Billy Goat with a 9hp robin and complains it doesn’t blow enough.

    Any input into your experience with them would be appreciated.

    My dealer currently carries Billy Goat; they carried Little Wonder a few years ago. Another dealer carries Little Wonder, so both available here.

    Difference in $ is min. when you consider expected years of life of tool. Thanks

    P.S. I did a search and read the results, would like current comments. Thanks again

    I'll give you my input i have an 03 BG with only a 5hp honda i shopped around and one dealer told me $900 for the robin another dealer told me the same thing i went to my mower dealer and asked about an 8hp LW and got something around $800

    Then i got asked about a billy goat and i walked out the door with it for $636 with tax and from what i can see it's a very well built machine so i would say go for the billy goat get as much HP as you can afford

    And i did demo a LW once it was an 8 and it was powerful so i'm not downing them

    Without a doubt I would buy the 13 hp little wonder. As long as your pushing that heavy blower around you need the most power you can get. I used a 13 hp LW for a weekend and it would move the leaves 30-40 feet :eek:.

    I have an 03 Mac Kissic blower w/ a 5 hp briggs and really like it,I also like the fact that its light enough to easly lift and put in and out of my truck. Only wish it had swivel front wheel instead of the solid mounted one it has now, but maybe I can put a swivel wheel on this winter.

    I have a Little Wonder with 8hp Briggs IC. It does a great job, and the 10hp or 13hp would be that much better. I would highly recommend the Little Wonder.
