How well do these lawn vacs work? Not a lot of people around here do leaf cleanups and I'd love to be able to market it in the fall/winter/spring. I'm looking at the Billy Goat and Scag Giant Vac. The catch is down here it's mostly oak leaves which fall down into the grass, unlike maple leaves and other large leaves That mostly stay on top.

They work great. You will never want to tarp leaves again

Barrett, what equipment are you running for leaf cleanups this fall? I see an older billy goat, what's the hp? How do you like the 8500 vs the 600's? Thanks, and keep up the great work! I'm 15 and you are truly an inspiration for me!

We run 600 magnums. I have an older billy goat push blower. Just got a tow behind leaf loader to replace my old tailgate unit. Keep on trucking man!

Here are some pictures from a large tree planting job where we installed 6 14' serbian spruces and a 25' pear tree in a client's backyard to block their view of the road below them.

Beautiful set up! I didn't know you had a chipper and such a beastly stump grinder too.

For the second part of the day we did a quick install of a viburnum privacy hedge. These plants are definitely one of my favorite to use as natural screens as they can be pruned back if they get too tall without looking horrendous.
