When you lower the goat hard to push, dig into grass.

Powerful easy to push reduces the size of the bulk by shredding the leaves so there is less to empty. Starts easily and bag is a pleasure to empty over past zipper types.

My experience with Billy Goat was great. Customer service and tech support were very helpful, and the machine arrived in great condition and does the job as promised.

Arrived in great condition.  Difficult to start as the choke is rather inconsistent. A bigger problem however was stopping the engine.  It is a Briggs and there is no kill switch.  The engine stops by moving the throttle to it's slowest speed however it was very challenging adjusting the throttle cable to the engine fuel lever.  The need to adjust this is never mentioned in the operator's manual.

Once running, it does an excellent job with dry leaves and acorns.  The weight of the bag almost tilts the machine backward making removal and emptying very smooth.
Finally, no answer to messages left at Billy Goat regarding the engine issues.

The Billy Goat yard vac is awesome! It is totally worth the money. The bag will hold a whole good size yard worth of leaves before needing emptying, and it filters dust very well. Vacuum power is amazing. No more rakes for me! I live in the western states, so had to deal with their pre-chosen freight carrier. This company was completely awful. They outright lied about setting up delivery appointments with me. They NEVER contacted me in any way. The vard vac did eventually show up undamaged, and all is well, but Jacks really should re-visit who they use for their LTL carrier.

I haven't fired it up yet, but it is assembled and looks awesome. Excellent packaging and quick delivery. I will not hesitate to order more items from Jacks!

Machine works well.  The bag becomes fairly heavy and can actually be heavy enough at times to lift the front of the machine up.  It does pick up damp and dry leaves and sticks very well.  If they are wet, does not pick up much at all.  Hard to use on any slight hills.  Overall, I do like it and think it is worth the money.

The unit arrived with a scraped area marring the finish.  I am happy to send a picture if you like.  This was probably due to the way it was boxed from the factory.
