Features for the Billy Goat F601S - Leaf Blower

Trying to muscle around a heavy machine can be a huge pain. But you won't be huffing and puffing when you use the 30% lighter Billy Goat F601S Wheeled Leaf Blower. You can push it with one hand! This unit weighs only 76 lbs, significantly lighter than comparable steel blowers, saving you time and energy when pushing across the turf!

If that doesn't blow you away, try out the Aim N Shoot™ airflow control, which lets you quickly adjust the discharge chute up or down — very convenient when clearing varying amounts of debris on the lawn. Finally, the lightweight rounded housing allows this unit to provide smooth, powerful flow, while also keeping noise to a minimum, especially around residential properties. If want to get more done, in less time, with less effort, the Billy Goat F601S is the blower for you!

  • Commercial-Grade Subaru Engine: The 6 HP commercial Subaru EX engine uses automatic decompression to reduce pull start force by 30-40%, so you can start with one easy pull.
  • Patented Aim N Shoot™:Quickly squeeze the airflow control lever to raise or lower the discharge chute. The lower the chute is to the ground, the more force will be directed down to blow up and under heavy piles of leaves and debris.
  • Air Volume & Speed:With 2.3x the air volume of backpack blowers, and an air speed almost reaching 200mph, this walk behind blower will speed up your operation, plus save labor costs if offering leaf removal services.
  • 16-Blade Closed Fan:The advanced 16-blade fan technology provides smooth consistent airflow with twice as many blades as other blowers on the market.
  • Smooth Rounded Housing:The smooth rounded housing reduces noise levels, increases air flow efficiency, and even won't rust or dent! The housing itself is backed by a 1-year warranty.
  • Ergonomic Handles:Landscaping Pros will benefit greatly from the ergonomically designed handles that provide comfort during longer hours of use.
  • F6 Warranty:You'll want some reassurance while you're enjoying this blower. The F601S is backed by a 1 year commercial warranty, 3 year residential engine warranty, and 1 year machine warranty.

Price was very good from this site. There was a problem with the order out of the box. The manufacturer had not put a top portion of a handle in the box. The box was new and unopened. It was an obvious fault of the manufacturer. I called the service and they immediately took my name and information an started to make the necessary corrections. They arranged to have the handle top drop shipped from the manufacturer which was the fastest way to get me the handle. They called to tell me the tracking number and what was happening. They also called to ensure that the handle top arrived when it was supposed to. They are awesome in terms of customer service.

The machine is better than I had expected. The ability to control the angle of the air from the handle is great. You can point the nozzle down to get wet leaves that are stuck to the ground moving and then move the leaves at a distance  by adjusting nozzle angle from the handle lever and not having to adjust the nozzle at the machine base. The air pressure is also very strong which is needed for the heavy oak leaves in my yard. By reducing the motor speed you and adjust the air pressure to keep from blowing all of the mulch out of the flower beds which it will do at full speed. It will blow over flower pots and anything else in the way at full power. Where safety glasses. stuff bounces off of tree trunks and other objects that are not moveable. Great machine and it is much lighter than others that I looked at. There is no need for a front wheel that swivels as the machine is very light and the pneumatic tires on the rear make it easy to tip and move the nozzle to point the direction that you want.

This Billy Goat Blower really huffs and puffs.  Great velocity to move big piles of leaves.  Cut the throttle back and you can have a less forceful blow.  I also like the adaptability of the BGB.  I've already used the 90º forward-blowing attachment.  Have got the 10' extension hose but haven't given it a try yet.  That thing needs a handle, so I'm gonna fashion one out of two more hose clamps and a metal handle with tabs on the ends to run the clamps over.

BTW, about that Subaru engine.  Even first time starting right out of the box, first pull of the cord, and "putter-putter-putter."  It has NEVER failed, yet, to start on the first pull.

I love my BGB.  I look at it as an investment.  It's a very "solid" piece of equipment built well. 

I also like the lighter weight of this blower v. others similar.

My ONLY complaint is I wish it had a bigger, and also rotatable, front wheel.  The very nice sized pneumatic rear tires do a good job.

It does a helluva lot better, and quicker, job than does my Husky backpack!!!

It is everything I thought it would be in regards to leaf maintainence equipment.

Does the leaf blower use gas or charge battery? Can it be use to blow snow during winter? Thanks

The Billy Goat F601S is a gas-powered leaf blower.  It is not ideal for snow, but if the snowfall is light, it might be able to blow through a slight snow dusting.
