After reading the thread started by groundsguy1970, I thought I'd ask about b/p blowers. I've heard shindawa are powerful but major expense. LGF says Red Max 6200/7000, expensive? I run an old lesco b/p, a stihl b/p, and a stihl 85 h/h. The h/h is surprisingly powerful but the stihl b/p is hard to start, and the vibration springs are prone to breaking. What do you guys reccomend as my next blower. I will also be getting a w/b next fall. Billy Goat, Little Wonder? What size, 5hp or more? We have lots of hills (not slopes, hills) out here.
