    I saw 2 rigs with the Billy Goat side discharge blowers today. How many of you use them.

    Not Billy Goats, but I've got a 8hp Little Wonder. I can switch the discharge direction from side to straight ahead. So for after one season of leaves, I really like it.

    My Little Wonder push blower only comes out during leaf season.
    Backpacks for grass cutting season.

    Same here. My 10hp little wonder is to heavy for regular use.

    It is possible that these guys have a commercial contract or two which includes the cleaning of the parking lot. If they are carrying those around for residential work then it is a bit of overkill.

    The guys here who have the Wal-Mart contract use one. They have one guy running it around like a madman. Fun to watch and he is good at it.

    I've got the Billy Goat, love it. I chose it for the adjustable shoot, you can direct the airflow wher ever you need it without stoping. Definatly great for leaves and parking lot cleaning.
