Not sure but would love to see some responses myself. Repost this in the commercial lawn mowing section for more feedback.

Are you looking at the new Billy Goat "MV"? I've got one and I like it. It's good for cleaning up small yards and parking lots. If I've got more than that I use my Force (wheeled blower) and a loader. The bagging system is AWESOME. No zippers and easy to dump! I got the self propelled version and it's stout. The only drawback I see on the unit is that I wish the bag could hold more. In thick leaves it can fill quickly. Weight and size wise it would be hard to handle if it held more leaves though.

Yes I do want my cake and to eat it too. ;)

For the occasional parking lot cleanup a walk behind is good. You'll find that you will quickly out grow a walkbehind vac if you take on anything larger than a residental unit. Might want to gander at a tail gate mount vac or even a Little Wonder street blower. Purchase the optional pickup hose and "tada" you have a vac that will shoot leaves into the bed of your trailer/pickup truck as well as a fine blower that can help gather them up.
