Billy Goat introduced its Z Force quick-attach zero-turn blower at GIE+EXPO 2011. The blower quickly attaches to any major zero-turn mower via standard heavy-duty JRCO mounting bracket. With a 360-degree-rotational, 4-inch-diameter, rubber discharge, the Z Force blower can divert air in any direction with the tap of a foot on the magnetically mounted pedal, providing rapid fall leaf and sidewalk cleanup. The pivoting throttle control handle pivots toward the operator during operation for easy reach and comfort, and it pivots away from the operator when not in use to provide the operator with easy entry and exit of the mower. Plus, the entire unit pivots up and down on rear quick attach, so the unit floats with terrain changes. Other features include 2 pins, a kickstand and rear-mounted housing handle for quick and easy connect and disconnect; a 13-hp. Honda or Subaru engine with 16-blade composite fan technology for plenty of power and output; heavy-duty caster wheels for stability; and a wrap-around steel safety guard for added protection when working around trees and other objects. The new Z Force blower will be available nationwide in spring 2012. For more information, visit
