    Billy goat blowers all the way get at least a 13hp or force 13 heavy and fuel hog but pushes serious leaves dude be a man push that fu#$er. Vacs, don't screw around with billy goat or giant vac look at xtreme vacs. I got a liquid cooled 27hp kawi on my xtreme vac with 6 blade guseted. This thing is a beast sucked my cell phone outta my hoodie pouch.

    Don't waste your money on a handheld blower vac. In the time you'll spend fighting that thing you can rake and tarp. I can say that because I tried just what you are talking about. Save up and buy a billy goat vac or a little wonder.

    Or just get a mulch kit and mulch 95% of your lawns.

    because most customers expect more from a service, and when you collect the leaves it looks nicer==== more business :clapping:
