    I finally broke down and bought a Little Wonder today. With all the talk on this site about how great they are I went and tried one and it was a blast. I purchased the 8 hp model. It is a great unit and my dealer gave me a pretty good price. I was wondering if any of you have the buggy made by JRCO. It seems like a steep price but very effective. Any opinions on my purchase or this buggy would be appreciated. Thanks, Bill D.

    Mdb. That looks like a nice buggy also, do you happen to have it and if so has it worked well. Can you jump curbs with one of these buggy's mounted? thanks, Bill D.

    Does anyone make a self propelled blower? I have a n older Little Wonder blower but have never used it other than to play on my own property. I couldn't imagine pushing that thing for long. Most of the properties we do seem to work well with the Walker and a backpack blower. Haven't had time to make a buggy yet and really don't think I would use it either. Why are they not self propelled.

    If Im not mistaking Billy goat makes a self propelled push blower! I agree that all push blowers should be sef propelled! My 8hp Little wander gives me a dam good workout pulling that thing around on hills!

    I have the 9HP Lil Wonder. I have used it quite a bit the past 4 years. I considered the buggy at first but now I can't see how it would be any more productive unless you are working on very large and very open properties.

    I have the JRCO Blower Buggy and it is one worthwhile investment. What a labor saving device. It is so great having all the air power, yet at your fingertips. It's cool the way it's designed, because the blower controls are right in front of you and easier to reach when you want to slow the air down. To go over curbs, it's no harder than going over with the mower. Just back the mower (in my case, a Lazer ztr) over, and pull the buggy up too. This works especially well if you have hills to work on. The one drawback that it does hve, (which isn't a biggy) is that you want to make sure that your front caster strap is good and tight, or else it will loosen up and come off. The whole thing only takes about 2 minutes to get on the mower, and to get the blower on and strapped down - a little less time to take off. Well worth the effort. I just run my mower at lower rpms (not with the blades engaged) as it doesn't have to have all those r's just to manuever around.

    Great to see you like you new toy Bill. i to have an 8 horse modle, and i absolutely love it! It works wonders on big leafy sections, and is even better for clearing out a parking lot!

    I got a chance to use the blower last night on a parking lot at a bank that i take care of. IT WAS GREAT!! pushing that thing around though will wear my butt out though. I am going to look into the buggy's that have been mentioned and see if I can Fabricate one myself. Thanks, Bill D.
