    If you come across one with a hose attachment let me know.
    My only experience is with Little Wonder and it is great to use. Indispensible for acorns etc.

    A large backpack will be more useful unless your doing big open areas.

    With Billy Goat you take your chances. Little wonder does work better, I've tried billy and settled on little wonder after an expensive 5k lesson...:laugh:

    You can't go wrong with Little wonder!

    I have one of each a Little Wonder and a Billy Goat. 8HP/9HP and the Little Wonder is by far the better of the two. Make sure to look for a turning front wheel model if possible.

    We have an older 13HP Billygoat and like it alot....the newer units are lighter and with bigger tires.....and by the way this unit will outdo two big 8000 or 600 units...I do like the chute that is controlled from the handle that is a nice feature...don't konw if they still have it...Honda engine.

    I love the new Billy Goat force blowers. I have no complaints whatsoever. I would love to try the new 18hp force blower they have out. Although I would need to buy a pack of mules to pull/push it around my accounts.
