I am going to be buying a WB leaf blower. ( i understand it is early). my local dealer sells Giant Vac and Billy goat. I think i am going to p/u the Billy 9 HP with the Subaru motor (999.00). that is what he is recomending to me, i dont know anyone persolaly who runs one of these machines.. The other is the 10 hp G Vac (extreme pro 9.0 tp) 1049.00.. this leaf seaon i am going to be prepared, i am a one man show, with some decent residentials. i just picked up a 17 hp g-vac loader for my dump. and all i need is to replace the old G-Vac 8 hp. my account range from 1/2 acre to 2 acres and typical amounts of leves for New England. WHAT IS THE BETTER MACHINE FOR ME???????????
