    I'm getting into leaf removal this year and I'm looking at the force blowers. the 13 Honda is appealing to me but would i be better off saving $500 and going with the 9 hp. remember i live in NE so we get some serious leafs. would i make the $500 up in productivity if i went with the 13? i also like to buy things right the first time would I'm not sure if the 13 would be overkill. thanks

    13 all the way! I just picked my 13hp Force up on Tuesday. For the size of the machine you would be foolish not to go with the 13. The robin engine has come a long way, however its "no honda"
