    I was wondering if anyone here owns a Little Wonder Walk Behind blower? Which HP do u all think would be right for large residential spring/fall clean up jobs? Thanks

    9hp Honda is the only way to go. We have 4 of them and they run like a timex. Take a licking and keep on ticking.

    8,9, & 10. honestly the 8hp Briggs is stronger than the 9hp Honda. Don't ask me why. :)

    I noticed that one of the paving/asphalt companies had 5 Billy Goats with Honda engines on them. When these guys clean off a parking lot to get it ready for coating IT IS CLEAN. How does Billy Goat stack up price wise to Wonder?

    Billy Goats tend more to graze, just from my knowledge of them. :p

    ed2hess, i have both, i have a 10 hp b&s Billy Goat and a 9hp honda Little wonder. The billy goat is ok with handle controls, but for my use i like the little wonder better because on some lawns i need the discharge pointing down to get anoyying leaves out. I also think the LW blows more than the billy Goat.
