Blower ideal for medium size maintenance contractors

October 31, 2017  By  Mike Jiggens

Billy Goat’s Force II wheeled blowers are now offered with optional 10-gross horsepower Vanguard power. Ideal for medium size maintenance contractors and large property owners, the F1002V Force blower combines innovative fan technology and operator ergonomics and leading class engine technology for superior blowing power and reliability.

The F1002 features 16-blade advanced fan technology with lightweight composite housing. Its patented Aim N Shoot allows the operator to direct the air discharge from the operator station and concentrates the air stream for up to 52 per cent more concentrated blowing force for an ideal combination of CFM and PSI to get more work done.

The units are powered by Vanguard with the patented Transport-Guard system that protects the engine from oil/fuel dilution during transport with a single fuel/engine on and off switch versus two switches found on other units in the market. During transport, this prevents common items such as fuel and oil from mixing in the crankcase, fouled spark plugs, hydraulic lock and difficult starts, as well as premature engine wear and costly downtime.

Force blowers are up to 30 per cent lighter than other units on the market and are easier to push. Smooth, round housing eliminates air voids for quiet output. The design won’t rust or dent and is backed by a five-year limited warranty. For added comfort, the unit is available with self-propulsion.


Other Force commercial blower models include the nine-horsepower and 13-horsepower Honda-powered and 18-horsepower Vanguard engines. Billy Goat’s small property F601 series features a 205cc Vanguard or a 208cc Briggs & Stratton engine.
