Description

Billy Goat’s F601 Series Force blowers feature the next level of performance and productivity in push blowers. Forget the fatigue factor associated with heavy metal machines, these models are a remarkable 30% lighter than comparable steel units and weigh only 76 lbs. making them a breeze to roll around the yard.
Rounded composite housings coupled with 16-blade advanced fan technology completely eliminate traditional bends in metal housings. This eliminates air voids, reduces noise, lowers weight, and pushes the design envelope for blowing efficiency. There is also no rusting or denting and there is less stress on the engine shaft for longer life. The F601V features a 205cc Vanguard engine.
The result is a dramatic jump in productivity, ergonomics and reliability. When combined with industry leading wheels, ergonomic handle design and the patented Aim-n-Shoot™ airflow technology, the F601 Ser. is the ultimate property cleanup tool.

Overview of the Billy Goat F601V

The Billy Goat F601V in use

The Billy Goat F601V

  • Power: The Billy Goat F601V is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 1090 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 200 MPH.
  • Handling: Walk-behind blowers such as the Billy Goat F601V are the most powerful. They are wheeled, heavy, have to be pushed and are mostly used by professionals. The unit features two 13" pneumatic wheels at the back, as a well as a front wheel that unfortunately does not swivel.
  • Engine: This blower's Vanguard engine has a displacement specification of 205cc. As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the F601V offers variable speed settings.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 82 dB, the F601V is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered walk-behind category.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank has a capacity of 112 fl. oz. This is not especially impressive for a walk-behind blower, which means that you may have to refill it more often than similar units on the market.
  • Aim N Shoot™: The Billy Goat F601V uses a patented proprietary technology called Aim N Shoot™ that enables the user to direct the air stream up or down directly from the handle. Thanks to this technology, debris can be thrown farther and more accurately.
  • Folding handle: The unit allows for compact and convenient storage, since its handle can be neatly folded down.
