I've tried the DR and haven't been impressed with the reduction of leaves. In fact, I suspect it hasn't reduced anything.

Also have had some problems with the engine; possibly just some clogged filters, but, really, it's only had an hour or two of use, so it shouldn't be that bad... I've really got to get out there and fiddle with it and get it running so I can see ASAP whether or not I'll be able to use it.

The Billy Goat MV model looks identical to the DR in all ways except the engine itself, so I'm not sure how well that would reduce things. Their VQ looks a bit heavier duty, I'd lean towards that one, and I'd see if I could try them out first.

Of course, since I posted what amounts to a bad review here, it convinced me to haul the DR out and give it yet another shot.

I cleaned the air filter and *poof* it started on the first try. Not only that, but it shredded things up fairly well. Since I had only used it for such a small area the only time I had it running before, I hadn't bothered to check the filter.

I did use the hose this time - the reason why I got it, really - so I don't know if that changed the shredding behavior.

Since the MV seems to be so similar, I have to retract what I said before and apply the same reasoning now that I've worked the bugs out of the DR: the MV would probably perform just as well for the shredding, and the difference then would be the engine and the commercial warranty.
