    Seen the vac in the new A.M. Leonard catalog on page 84 just woundering if anyone uses one or something like it for leaves in beds,ivy, maybe alot of shurb clippings. How well do they work, what I listed above is about what I would use it for. Now I use the regular blowers and then pick them up with the mowers.Just an idea for about $1900 it might save that in time?

    I use a Billy Goat vac that I got free from a neighbor and I find it very useful. It is good for cleaning the street and smaller piles of leaves w/o having to get a rake and barrel and it picks up every little bit of debris. I plan on purchasing a new one ( Billy Goat) w/a Honda engine from Alamia or local dealer. They are useful for smaller size properties that need to be perfectly clean. It also reduces the leaf volume which helps. It's easier to use a vac on small properties b/c the leaves don't blow all over if it's windy. It has it's place.

    I saw the same vac in AM lenord too, I think I will stick to the Billy goat or Parker vac systems.
