Here in Oklahoma lots of people back in the day were stupid enough to plant these trees which dump spike ball unto the ground and they are a pain to pick up. (for them anyways... for us it like picking up dollar bills...) I have a chance to buy a Billy goat KD (no longer made) with hose attachment and no, I'm not going to try to pick up a yard full of leaves with it rather I want to use it for picking up all the junk alongside the curb/pick up junk out of the flower beds/picking up gum balls. To make it worth it for us we need it to pick up gumballs... can it do it? Any other general comments on the KD vacs? (btw. its the one with a honda engine not a b&s) Thanks!
