The new F601S Small Force Blower from Billy Goat, introduced last spring, has been an instant hit among DIYers, rental yards, commercial dealers and landscapers, the company reports. The appeal is centered around the low weight, high productivity and unit price.
The F601S completes the only full-line composite blower lineup on the market. At only 76 lbs., this blower is 30% lighter than comparable steel units, making it a breeze to roll through yards.
As improvements to backpack leaf blowers narrowed the performance gap to their wheeled cousins, manufacturers of the wheel blower had done little to improve performance and operation of their products, until recently.
Conceived through market research and hours of computer optimization, the Force wheel blower represents a revolutionary design. Steel was too heavy, and plastic is light and plenty durable, resulting in the rise of the composite blower.
Constructed of a high-density, impact-resistant poly volute housing with16-blade composite impeller that won't dent or rust, the newest Small Force Blower offers best-in-class air velocity and air volume.
Powered by a 6-hp Subaru commercial engine with a three-year warranty, the F601S does the work of two and a half large backpack blowers but costs only $100 more than one backpack blower. What's more is there is no fuel to mix and no noise or weight on the operator's back.
One of the key benefits of the F601S is its patented Aim-N-Shoot swiveling nozzle that allows users to direct or fan the air output from the operator's position with fingertip control. And it's lockable in three positions.
With larger wheels, an ergonomic handle design and a quiet dBA rating, the F601S offers users maximum productivity and performance.
