    Just bid on a vac unit at an auction today... It's a self-propelled one with an 8 or 9 hp Kohler. I have no idea what the thing is worth but I bid 150.00 (canadian) and was thinking it would be great to pick up leaves and to clean parking lots. Anybody run one of these? Any suggestions? what are they worth?

    i bought one this spring from home depot (billy goat SV50 H) and it didnt seem to work very well. it may have been the fact that the stuff i was picking up was from the previous fall and was wet, but the thing woudlnt stop clogging up. i'm going to chop it up w/ my mower first and then sweep it up and see how that works.
