    I have been needing to buy another blower for my clean ups. I have the redmax 8000 and a smaller echo and i was thinking about buying the billy goat 9hp wb blower. I work alone but im going to be hireing a guy to help me with my clean ups. Then i was thinking what about another 8000?? I have some really big acounts then i have some smaller ones.. What do you guys think would work best the bg or another redmax 8000?????? Thanks for the help

    get the 8000........at least u can use it for grass too.......we have a little wonder.......works well, but we only use it for cleanups....so it just kinds sits there in till leaves fall.

    The wb blowers, so long it's at least 8hp, there's no comparison to a backpack.
    Mine's a 10hp but it is a Briggs, that 9 is likely Honda, probably comparable in performance.

    I get at least 30% more work done with the push, what I mean is I get 60 / hour with the push vs. 40 with the backpack and it's still a better deal for the customer.
