Looking for info on Billy Goat Blower

    My son does some maintenance at a storage facility and during one of the clean outs he brought home an old Billy Goat blower that was going to a dumpster. It is older and pretty robust (no plastic and heavy). I sent an email to BG hoping they may have a manual and parts list. It is in VG shape and the flat head Kawi started on the second pull! All it needed was tubes in the tires and a new nose wheel, some missing bolts and a few hours of time.

    Does anyone have any info that they can share re this machine.

    Model: BL85KW
    S/N: 1579

    Kawasaki FG300D
    296cc
    7.5 ps. (ps?)

    Thanks.

    Must be an older model--in what nosing around I did at www.billygoat.com the model number doesn't show up on their list.

    Darryl, thanks for the link, I hadn't looked that far up to now.

    Fish, I couldn't be happier with this find. I just really like the older equipment and am trying to get more info about it. Two of my WB's are mid-90's that were resurrected and are very reliable, productive mowers. Like I said I like the older machinery.
