Long shot, does anyone have both?? Im wondering if the hurricane has more or less blowing power than the 18 hp billy goat. The hydro self propel and weight must eat up some power. I have the 18 billy goat and use it alot. I bought it just before they came out with self propelled. I want to get another one next year plus a leaf loader which will be over 6k. Hurricane is going for 8 1/2.
