The Billy Goat blower was compared to other top brands in the following categories...
| Brand || Blowing || Durability || Handling || Maintenance |
| || Power || || & Balance || & Ingenuity |
| Billy Goat || A- || B+ || B+ || B+ |
| Fradan || B+ || A- || A- || A- |
| Little Wonder || A- || B+ || B+ || B+ |
Blowing Power: A-
A huge fan generates a ton of wind. It is laid out different than Little Wonder in that it has a circular discharge and no split stream of air. It’s really a personal preference.
The Little Wonder is more effective at lifting matted leaves while the Billy Goat moves dry leaves better over open areas.
I was a skeptic at first when I saw the plastic housing. However, it has held up very well.
For the smaller units, the Subaru is a great option.
For the larger units, the 13hp Honda is ok. Billy Goat should really consider offering a 14hp Vanguard or Subaru option.
Handling & Balance: B+
For its size, the Billy Goat is a pretty lightweight unit. It is physically very big and a bit bulky. However, it pushes well with its large tires.
Maintenance & Ingenuity: B+
Billy Goat is attempting to improve the old “push blower” design. The plastic housing aim and shoot discharge option are both very innovative. Their 5-year housing warrantee is very comforting.
