They are a waste of time. Do a search, and see what everyone that owns them says.

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 !!!

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.
