Billy Goat Lawn Vacuum

Any of you use the Billy Goat Lawn Vacuum? Is it worth the money? Or is it easier to blow it all ...mulch it...and get rid of it?

mcw used to have one but he sold it. he said he liked it and makes the lawn look great. also mulching leaves if thats what your talkin about just makes it look bad. i dont like the look of it at all.

I think that the Bear Cat vac is much heavier duty and does a better job....you might want to check them out!

We use them & love them they work great for leaf clean ups & running along curblines after weekly maintenance.

I have a billy goat kd512 leaf vac. It works well and I would probably buy another one.

I mainly use it to pick up extra leaf mulch once my mower shreds the rest up.
