Do not disturb!

When working in public areas such as parks, schools, hospitals or tourist hotspots, sound levels are always a concern so as not to disturb the peace. Likewise, noise levels are also an issue for the user with prolonged periods of exposure causing hearing problems and often, permanent damage.


The Control of Noise at Work Regulations stipulate that hearing protection is mandatory for equipment over 85 decibels. At just 77 decibels, Billy Goat’s QuietVac series whispers while it works and has the lowest dB compared to other vacs on the market.

The QVs are part of Billy Goat’s extensive vacuum range and are the world’s quietest vacuums. Available as either hand or self-propelled models the QVs can hold an impressive 36 gallons (136 litres) of debris in its collection bag. In addition to this, the machines feature exclusive dust sock technology that drastically reduces dust particles as small as 0.1 micron. for additional operator protection and improved air quality. Dust reduction is furthered by a state of the art, unique cyclonic filtration system that reduces dust in dry conditions without compromising on suction power.

With an industrial width of 33” the QuietVacs are ideal for wide areas of commercial, industrial land and municipal clean up. This means that wide, vast areas and estates can be cleared with minimal effort and noise disruption.


The self-propelled models utilities hydro drive transmission with forward and reverse speeds from 0 to 3mph to help negotiate tight spots with ease, making them first pedestrian vacuums to be able to do this. They also have durable front castors for easy operation on uneven surfaces, and the height can be adjusted from half an inch up to three inches.

The Billy Goat QuietVacs weigh between 80kg and 113kg (dependent upon the engine size), and prices start from £1889.99 (including VAT). An optional hose kit that expands to 10 feet can be purchased separately.

Where’s the great British summer?!

It may only just be the start of August but some days recently have felt like autumn is on its way. With that in mind perhaps it’s not too early to start considering your autumn clean up regime.

Here at Billy Goat autumn clean up is our speciality! It’s when we really get to show off the power of our vacuums and blowers!

The first step is to use a force blower to gather the debris into one area. Start in the corners, blowing towards the centre of the lawn/area, and work inwards, doing one section at a time. A top tip is to work with the breeze, not against it! Use it to your advantage to help make the job even quicker.

Wheeled Force Blowers from Billy Goat aren’t just versatile and powerful, they are also light and the quietest leaf/debris blowers on the market. They are self-propelled with reliable engines, so there is no need to push which will increase your productivity. The range of blowers from Billy Goat contains models of many different size with varying force to suit all requirements – all the way up to the ultimate F18 which has an air velocity of 200mph!


Once you have used your force blower to gather the debris, the next step is to remove it. For this you will require a vacuum for suction and to save hand collection. Once again, Billy Goat has solutions for all needs and property sizes.

The wheeled, lightweight Little Billy is perfect for domestic and residential applications. At 51cm/20” wide it is designed for small gardens, yet with a wide nozzle it provides superior suction. It also has an easy height adjustment and felt bag with 105litre collection capacity making it the perfect partner for domestic gardeners wanting to increase their efficiency.

Also designed for the domestic and residential market is the KV Series, however these models are also suitable for small commercial applications. With a width of 69cm/27” and a 5 blade impeller with serrated edges, the KV Series maximises suction and tackles debris with ease. They are also available with an on-board 5cm/2” chipper to add clearing branches to your list of autumn clean up jobs.

On the industrial and professional side, Billy Goat produce the MV Series that are ideal for larger properties, commercial sites, streets, councils and festivals – you name it, Billy Goat’s MV series has it covered! With a width of 74cm/29”width, MV Series models pick up can, litter, bottles and other debris with complete ease and wolfs down rubbish.
