Billy Goat's F601S takes our Best spot. Like its brother the F601V, the F601S is going to be identical except for the engine. What makes this unit a Best product within this category has to do with the price as well as the quality Subaru engine. Overall what you get for the price is honestly a great deal for the average homeowner all the way to the landscaping company.

The F601S is powered by a 169cc EX17 Subaru engine. These engines prove to be top of the line engines for a very... more

Works Great!
I was debating whether to go with the Billy Goat or the Little Wonder and am very happy with my decision. The Billy Goat works great, starts easily and lots of blowing power. It's also much lighter than the Little Wonder so easier to maneuver. The only problem is the assembly manual is terrible but fortunately not much to really do.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Excellent Piece Of Machinery.
As a former executive in machinery engineering companies I know well-built machinery when I see it. This leaf blower is so very well constructed. I once had a Billy Goat brush hog which was likewise well constructed. This leaf blower is instrumental in cutting our leaf clearing time in half. Good show all the way around.
Pros: Durable, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

"We had a problem with a damaged-in-shipment blower. The customer service support team solved the problem by almost immediately by sending out a replacement. We received the second blower in the morning at 9AM and were blowing leaves within 30 minutes. How is that for ease of assembly and operation!! Totally satisfied with Leaf Blowers Direct."

Recent purchase for fall here in New York suburb 2-acre property, mostly oak. This machine has performed well and saved time and money as the landscapers have recently been replaced.

Billy Goat 169cc Subaru
Was initially worried about the smallish displacement Subaru engine.... but was pleasantly surprised to find the engine had more than enough power than I needed for thick skinned oak leaves! So much power that I only needed full throttle on occasions. Very happy with product, customer service, and price!

Great Leaf Blower
I have about 1 1/2 acres of lawn with all the oak and maple trees anyone could ever want surrounding the property. I found that the Billy Goat Force F601S did a fantastic job taking care of the leaves. I've used it several times.

It starts easily and has plenty of blowing power for my situation. The unit arrived in good condition. Although the box was damaged, the unit was not. A complete inspection was done by me and the truck driver, and all was good. A nice unit for the money.

Happy Blowing
When looking for a walk behind leaf blower, I consulted the Power Equipment Direct website. I was a bit skeptical at their recommendation of the Billy Goat Blower with the Subaru engine over the more powerful B&S engine. After reading the reviews by satisfied users and reading the specs, I decided to buy the Subaru powered blower.

It was a good decision. After putting oil in the engine and gas in the tank, it started right up. I have three acres with lots of oak trees. The Billy Goat... more

Oh, My
Have you ever wanted to do yard work? Neither did I until I bought this baby. It's amazing.

I did my whole yard (which used to take me hours and hours to rake and bag) in 1 hour. It's incredible how powerful this thing is. I can't believe I waited this long to buy one. Big mistake waiting that long.

If you're in doubt, don't be. It will be worth every penny. I live on an acre with 3 sides wild. Believe me when I tell you I have TONS of leaves every year. I no longer dread... more

Lightweight Powerhouse!
Bought the F601S almost 3 years ago! My Mom's lot is approx 175' x 125'. It took 5 hours for my wife, my 2 daughters, my mom and I to clean up her leaves! We used a wheel barrow to cart the leaves to the curb for borough pickup! We used rakes and a small gas blower! With the F601S it took me one hour to blow everything to the curb! We had to throttle down to blow leaves off street over to curb! The Subaru engine idles much better at low throttle settings than the Honda GXV 160 engine on... more
