    Hello, I am about to purchase a new walk behind blower my dealer has Giant-Vac, Fraden, and the new Force Blowers. The are pushing me to the Force, but I don't seem to the plastic housing. I'm looking into the 8-10 HP range.
    Which one do you think that I should get.

    Get the biggest, we got 13HP Billygoat......Honda has done well with the plastic housing don't hear any complaints on those. The lever operated air flow director on Billygoat is nice feature.

    Do a search on the Force blower. This was just talked about last week.

    If you really want the best walk behind blower in the industry get a Little Wonder either the new Optimax or the 13hp honda. Go to their website and you can see them take on the most of the major brands head to head. The Little wonder outblows all of them. The Force is the only one that keeps up with the Little Wonder. Go to Billy Goats site and view the vids of the force going head to head with all the other major brands. The the Little Wonder is the only blower that matched the Force in all catorgories. The only advantage the Force has over the Little Wonder is that is weighs 20lbs less. Also keep in mind that Little Wonder had the best warranty in the business- 5 years
