Finding the right autumn clean up machinery for you: blowers and vacs from Billy Goat

It feels like the summer has not long started. It’s only August so thinking about autumn is probably one of the last things on your mind. However, perhaps it’s time to start thinking about getting ready for autumn clean up.

We’ll be telling you plenty more about the topic in future blog posts but now is a key time to start thinking about which pieces of clean up machinery are best to use. This month we’re going to talk you through blowers and vacuums to help you get ahead and to save you time and labour when returning your land to its former glory.

When it comes to choosing the right piece of kit to help clean up your property Billy Goat has plenty to offer. These powerful pieces of land clearance machinery are suitable for not just lawns and parks but also hard surfaces such as car parks, pathways and drives to remove debris, grass, leaves and twigs.

The first question to ask yourself is what are you requirements? Size, budget and level of debris are all factors that you should consider. Fortunately, Billy Goat has something for everyone.

The first step in debris removal is a force blower. Use this 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. Prices of these heavy duty leaf/little vacuums start from £1750 inc. VAT.

A final addition to the extensive Billy Goat vacuum range are the unique QuietVac™s – the world’s quietest vacuum. If noise is a concern for you, then look no more. The QuietVacs’ filtration system reduces dust in dry conditions without compromising on suction power. This means that wide, vast commercial and industrial areas as well as large estates can be cleaned up with minimal effort by these heavy duty machines. At 84cm/ 33” wide, the QuietVac™s are Billy Goat’s widest vacuums. Prices start from £1799.99 inc. VAT.
