Hey Guys-- I've done lots of leaf jobs over the past couple of winters. The yards are up to an acre of heavy accumulation and sometimes soggy with all the rain we've been having. Have been using a couple of Stihl BR600 backpack blowers to do this. The Stihls are great for what they do, but aren't really meant for pushing around the volume of leaves I dealt with last winter, and I've pretty much decided that I need a bigger blower if I'm doing to continue to do leaves in the winter. My instinct tells me to just buy the biggest blower I can get my hands on, something on the order of a Billy Goat F1802V; a couple of my competitors I talked with use 13 HP blowers and they say that's all they've ever needed. I'm no spring chicken (60) and I hardly ever hire help. I'm kind of thinking that the extra power won't be wasted. What do you guys think? Would appreciate any constructive advice/criticism.
