A leaf vacuum. I'm leaning toward The Billy Goat I saw I saw at a local rental company that is going out of business here in Hartsville. It;s used (of cource) but it seems to be in good shape. They are asking $950.00. Any suggestions?

There are only two things I need to pick up to complete mt set up, A Stihl FC110 edger and a BR550 Blower, going with Stihl as I really like the dealer, have never had an issue with their Chain saws and I know they have an excellent service dept if needed and give priority to landscape companies.

if you have ever owned one you would know...its like buying a new pair of your favorite sneakers.

The ride is great, the decks are bulletproof, and mine is now 13 years old and I could still get another 2 -3 years out of it...it just looks tired and it is time for a new one.
