Do any of you guys use walk behind lawn vacumes if so which are the best?
They are a waste of time. Do a search, and see what everyone that owns them says.
I second that. I own a $900 Billy Goat brand. What a waste of money that was.
I know they are worthless for leaves, but what about parking lots for picking up dirt and cigarette buts? I've got some commercial accounts that could use this service but not big enough for a truck mounted unit.
That they will work good for. Evan leaves off the parking lot will work, but not in grass.
A backpack, broom, and a tarp or flat shovel and bucket are faster, and you don't eat half as much dust, either.
I have a older billy goat, it's ok for the parking lots, I use it only in the spring, but I also get someone else to run it, as you eat dust like crazy !!!
Yes but does anyone own the 10hp VQ series or are we hearing only of the 5hp models?
I've had a 5.5hp & it was Junk but the 10hp May Be Much Better.
Thanks guys i guess that awnsers my question, No walkbehind vacume.
I guess if you can pick one up dirt cheap (like I did) it might be worth it to have around for that odd job. But for the most part my old goat sits in the shed and gathers dust and only comes out about 4 or 5 times a year.
