Billy Goat does make good products. They both look pretty good, but I know more about Billy Goat products.

Which is it $700, $800 or $1500. Just remember you get what you pay for.

I havent been able to find a used one that works for $700-$800 dollars. I came across the billy goat and thouhgt well if im going to spend 1000-1500 on a used one, maybe its worth buying a new billy goat.

I'd invite you to try one of our Quick36's. It's a great mower with a lot of good features and the hydro makes it very easy to use.

Send us an email for additional info.

the billy goat up her ein Canada is going for $1,000 less then a Toro or Exmark. I think I can rightfully justify trying one unit out. It does look like a basic model but it definitely has the look and feel of a commerical model exmark or toro model mower. I'm going to try it out this spring and give it a go. Anybody actually used one. Give me your reviews!

Thanks, Dan
