I am thinking of adding fall leaf pickup to our outdoor services business this year. What are some pros and cons of the trac-vac, billygoat vac, and the other big commercial leaf vacs out there. I would not get anything under a 16hp with a 10" pickup hose. what's better - dump trailer or just regular flatbed trailer, how about loading right into pickup bed?

It would be interesting to know , just how handy those machines would be... I haven't looked closely at them becuz the ones I see need to be attached to a truck or trailer, so its always in the way...

I had a trac vac, before it was stolen it it did a good job. I also have a Billy goat it works well on dry leaves. I wish it were self-propelled though when the bag gets full it starts to get heavy. It is perfect for getting along fences so you don't blow leaves into the neighbors yard.
