    What make/model do you use? Do you like it or do you think it was a waste of money. Our city has leaf pickup if left at the curb so do you think that the vacuum would be good choice or should i stick with large backpack blower? thanks

    I have a billy goat and that has saved me loads of time. It was worth the money but this year i am using the billy goat and my exmark for the leaves. Good luck!

    will a billy goat digest damp leaves off lawn? i've heard conflicting accounts of its ability.

    I wouldn't always count on it. Mine does an ok job on wet leaves. When the bag gets wet, that sucks. IT gets really heavy and mine took forever to dry. If my dad had a truck, i would have bought a leaf loader instead, however, since we use his suburban, i had to go with the leaf vac and dump the stuff into the trailer that i built sides for. It depends on the situation. Good Luck, i still stand by my billy goat though!
