    Hey I was considering buying a billiy goat vac. I think it would be good for gumballs, cig butts and trash at my car dealer client. Any advice? Are there models to avoid? Are there hidden uses or do they just collect dust in shop?

    For parking lots they're great, not as good for lawns in my experience.

    this one is nice, you can get it self propelled.

    we use a billy goat for a parking lot clean up. It rocks. I have picked up everything with it, cig butts, plastic bottles, you just name it, I have sucked it up.

    I use my 5hp billy Goat to vacuum thatch on small lawns. Also for light to medium fall leaf clean up. Final clean up of turf after stump grinding. Any type of clean up when I don't want to blow debris on the lawn.
    I also use it to clean up the shop, especially after using the lathe.
