i do mostly res mowing etc....i have 2 churches that i maintain. both hv smaller parking lots....prob 50x100 ft long....are the 8 hp lil wonder walk behind blowers sufficient? I have maintained these for 10 years w just a backpack blower, and that does fine....however i have ran across a pretty good deal in one locally. 200 bucks, runs great, just needs new throttle cable. These lots just have the usual few pine needles and leaves from week to week. None of my clippings are on the lots, so its not alot.
