    Ok i did a search. I know the 8hp and up are better.
    But, a fellow just called me . He selling some equipment.
    One thing he has is a little wonder w/b blower. Baought it last spring. Paid 1100 canadain. He wants 400 canadian for it now.
    Anyone here use one. Your thaoughts on it.
    Most cleanups are med sized areas. Not huge 5 acre open spreads.
    Is the 5 hp more powerfull than a back pack blower.
    Thanks
    mike

    I own a 5hp little wander and also the 8hp lw's. HUge diffrence obviuosly in the two but the 5th will move higher volumes of leaves then a back pack blower for sure. If you do properties without a ton of trees or not to big the 5hp will serve you well.

    Mike, I've got a 5, 8, and 10hp Little Wonders. The 5hp is great for getting into and out of larger beds if the plants allow. Sure, its not as powerful as the 8 or 10, but it weighs a lot less too. That just means its easier to push around at the end of the day. We usually put the 10hp on a dolly from jrco and let the mower push it around.
