    Is a Billy Goat debris vaccume worth the $1800.00 investment. I need to remove trash,leafs etc from a property weekly, but I have never used this machine and dont know how they perform.

    Why not just use a mower with a bagger? I used to have an old billy goat that was given to me by my father in law about 5 years ago, I started it up used it on my own front yard for about 2 mins ( just to see if it ran) and it sat in my garage for the remainder of the 5 years until i gave it to a buddy. I didn't see the point in it since I have mowers with bagging systems.

    The reason I dont use bagger mowers is because the leafs need to be removed from 2 inch rock beds and I dont want to damage my blades or send a rock flying thru a cars windsheild.

    Can you blow them into the lawn and then use the bagger. Thats what I do and it is oh so quick.
