I had my Little Wonder 6 205cc Leaf Blower for 10+ years, it served it's purpose. One day the oil leaked out? weird... I refilled and next thing BOOM... it threw a ROD! all done. Boat Anchor.... A replacement Lil Wonder was roughly $950. A short block was roughly $200. I found this Horizontal 1" B&S 15T212-160-F8 9HP GEM through CPO Outlets for WELL under $275!! Free SHIP NO TAX Complete!!.No one came close to this price; No-One. Removed the old B&S 6HP engine (that was tough pulling the FAN) Cleaned it all up.. bolted this one on added OIL & Gas Varooom started on the first PULL.. I was mildly Surprised ... Back in Business..getting rid of leaves ..only FASTER GOOD as NEW..& actually BETTER.
Nice Upgrade 3+ More HP..
PERFECTION.. I am Pleased, who wouldn't be?

AWESOME Customer Service
The motor was to replace one on a leaf vacuum. The motor ordered (this one) was just as described, however, we ordered the incorrect one. Customer service took care of the issue immediately, no hassles. They sent the correct motor the same day I called. Oh yeah, both items were shipped VERY quickly. I will definitely order from this company again.

I have a 900 series that went on my Agri Fab leaf vaccum. It has the 1" tapered shaft for the propeller fan and I was wanting to know if the 1150 would be a good choice. Having a problem finding the right motor with the right shaft. Thanks

Will the Briggs &Stratton 15T212-0160-F8 250 cc 1150 series engine be an exact replacement for the DR self propelled walk behind leaf vacuum? My current 11.50 engine is making a terrible thumping sound as if the crankshaft bearing may have broken.. Thank you Albert Sbrolla
