    What do you think of Billy Goat products? I'm thinking of getting a truckloader to do leaves with.

    We got a WB 13HP blower and like it a lot.

    It's funny that you should ask. I just demo'd one today - the 13 HP Honda. Granted what leaves there are, are as dry as they can be. The loader cleaned them up fast and pulverised them into a very fine mulch. A big pile mulched down to almost nothing.

    I tried to throw the rep a curve and broke out the garden hose. I soaked a good pile of leaves, mixed them up with my feet then soaked them again, then repeated that a few more times. The machine was at half throttle and it sucked the leaves up no problem.

    In short - the machine is in my shop now waiting for fall. My hope is that if I don't do much more mowing this year I can "clean up" with leaves this fall.

    That Honda engine seems to have ALOT of torque.

    Hope that helps some . . . .

    We have one...forget the model number off hand. I believe I wrote about it awhile back...do a search. We love the darn thing. Few (4 maybe???) years old and still runs very well. Knock on wood no problems...

    I did a post asking this a while back... They said it wasn't a good cut. I've never tried one.
