Debris Loaders from Billy Goat take all the effort out of the job and help clear up in minutes. These machines have hoses that range in size from 20cm by 3 metres to 35cm by 3 metres, so they certainly have the capacity to lend maintenance teams a hand when it comes to cleaning up.

These machines also offer cost-effective benefits to the user. You will get through shredding and cutting debris quickly meaning you can get more into your truck and can spend less time and fuel taking it to your local tip. You save time and money!

Billy Goat debris loaders can be used for any size residential or commercial application and it is available in a variety of sizes with a wide range of features.

The entry level machine is the DL1301HEU with 13hp and a Honda engine – it is perfect for small to medium-sized jobs. Light weight and low overall cost, this unit reduces debris up to 12:1. The intake hose is the best in class with a clear poly helical soil so you can visually see if a blockage occurs, allowing a quick fix to take place.

For increased power there is the DL1801V which has 18hp and a Briggs & Stratton engine. These units are ideal for mid to large property managers, contractors but also customers with very large gardens. These heavy-duty units feature CustomFit which allowes you to customise the loader to your truck.

A clear coil also comes with this machine as standard to help avoid blockages.

Billy Goat clears up the drive

A small woodland that had been felled and replanted can create the perfect conditions for dense undergrowth and can quickly become a massive challenge for beaters and dogs on any shoot.

To help face this challenge, our Billy Goat ground-clearing machines recently attended the White Hart Cover on Staffordshire’s Seighford pheasant syndicate to tackle its undergrowth.

The Billy Goat Outback Hydrostatic brushcutter cut a 26” wide swathe through undergrowth that, in places, is waist high and a mix of bramble, grasses, weed and unwanted self-sown saplings up to 5cm wide. It also easily coped with overgrown brush up to 2m high.

In just two hours the walk-behind machine cleared drives and spaces for feeders and achieved what would take a work-party of half a dozen guns and beaters a morning’s hard slog.

“The ground was virtually impenetrable but as soon as we fired up the machine and moved into the area it became immediately apparent that this was an incredibly powerful piece of equipment,” said Simon Keeling, the game keeper at Seighford.

“It simply cut through everything in its patch, never got stuck and when facing huge growths of bramble, we simply tilted the handled back to lift the front of the Billy Goat and lowered it down to remove everything to ground level,” he added.

The machine is fully automatic and its hydrostatic transaxle senses when the rear wheels start to spin it locks the wheels to give positive traction.  Its heavy-duty blade spindle is reinforced on four sides to tackle any brush conditions.

Billy Goat brushcutter prices start from £2249.99 including VAT.
