Ground care for the winter months

Morning frosts have already begun, and it won’t be long until we are faced with the freezing temperatures of winter. Whilst this is a relatively quiet period for ground and estate maintenance, it’s good practice to tackle a number of jobs in the coming weeks before everything becomes too frozen. For example, take a survey of the estate and note any branches that are encroaching on buildings and structures, and cut them back now. This will also prevent heavy snow gathering on them and causing them to break, which may cause damage to buildings, but also to the tree itself.

Falling temperatures and falling leaves can play havoc with paths, so make sure that they are kept clear – there is nothing festive about a broken ankle! If you are investing in a leaf blower it is a good idea to go for a powerful wheeled version as it will also be able to tackle light coverings of snow too. Billy Goat’s range of Force Wheeled Blowers are the world’s most powerful and versatile, and cover all requirements from residential, to commercial to municipal. With the patented ‘Aim n Shoot’ technology, that allows you to direct the airflow where you need it most, and fingertip control, it’s incredibly easy to use.

The F9 Series is ideal for medium size maintenance contractors and large property owners. This F902H model is built to clear 2,000m2 from leaves in only 45 minutes. It is backed by a 3-year Honda engine warranty

The larger F13 Series is perfect for professional use, providing considerable power and productivity. This Honda powered force blower is a favourite for full size landscapes, schools, parks departments, cemeteries, resorts and golf and estate properties. It is available in a push and a self propelled version and will enable you to clear 2,000m2 of ground in under half an hour.

The F18 Series is the ultimate in volume and power! A 15.2 cm discharge with air velocity of just below 320 km/h blows and pushes leaves and debris with more force so you can clean up faster than with any other blower in the Billy Goat line up. There are two models in the series, both of can clear 2,000m2 in under 30 minutes. The F1802SPV model is even self propelled to increase productivity. Both models are equipped with professional Vanguard® V-Twin engines with a 3-year engine warranty.
