    Since Fall clean up is coming I was wondering about getting one of those billygoat vacoums. First I want to know if anybody has one of them, 2nd I would like to know what is the diffrence between the debris or trash picker upper to the leaves one. I wanted to use the bigger one, but it says its for garbage and stuff. Lastly How much do these cost.

    We have been thinking of buying one for vacuuming leaves mainly on hard surfaces. The Billy Goat KD Pro Lawn vacuum runs about $1000.00 at our dealer. I would also like to hear from someone that has used or owns one. We are planing on renting one before making the purchase.

    A dealer told me before that the vaccums are a waste of money, so he talked me into a push blower instead. That was approx 4 to 5 years ago and I still use the Billy Goat blower. One of my favoriate pieces of equipment

    Does anyone use one of those accelerator type of baggers, I was wondering how easy they are to take on and off your mower once you have it installed on I just barely squeeze my mower on my trailor as it is so i would have to take it off after every job, but if it is easy its no biggy
