  1 Question
Q: Will this machine pick up acorns & butternuts? and how well does it work on uneven ground?
by Christina Beyer from Minnesota on September 23, 2015

A: Christina - this is a very common question. This unit may pick up "some" acorns, but there isn't a vac on the market that is really effective at picking up acorns. Round objects are much harder for these vacs to pick up due to their shape.

One piece of equipment for all tasks whether you are mulching, chipping, or cleaning up litter and lawn debris. The Billy Goat TKV650SOH is perfect for your toughest residential or property maintenance jobs.

The self-propelled drive system makes this great for any hilly turf cleanup without feeling fatigued. Combine this with the 5-blade serrated impeller for maximum suction and a 12 to 1 debris reduction; you’ll be able to clear more with less downtime. The 40 gallon, mesh collection bag... more

Billy Goat Self Propelled Lawn Vacuum W/ Chipper
I really like the unit and it seems to pick up the leaves and small limbs that have fallen. Have used the chipper on some larger limbs and very happy with the way it chips them to use in my garden for mulch. Just having one issue.

The plastic cover on the self propelled unit at the back acts somewhat like a fender over the rear wheels and it does not have enough clearance and drags on the wheel. Have not figured out a way to get more clearance.

Waste Of Time, Space & Money
With luck it vacuums up leaves and that's only if they are lying flat on level ground in one layer. It does not vacuum up the thousands of little maple-tree spinners that fall on the lawn and it only pushes along leaves that are more than just one layer high. It's heavy, as is the leaf waste bag when it's full.

The bag fills up almost immediately and is difficult to empty due to the canvas bag that all of the leaf mulch sticks to. Emptying the bag is also another project: since the bag... more
Pros: self-propelled
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Expensive, Doesn't do the job.

Marilyn,
I am sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the performance of your Billy Goat model. I have not heard of these performance issues in the past. Have you reached out to Billy Goat technical support regarding the inability to vacuum multiple layers of leaves? Once again I am sorry that you are less than pleased with this unit and if we can be of further assistance, please feel free to reach out to us.

Thank you for your review and have a good day.

Just What I Needed!
Was a bit apprehensive after spending more than I had wanted. After using I am glad I spent the extra. The Honda motor is a hard pull but always starts on one pull. The self propelled was a good call. The hose attachment is a winner! Wet leaves, large leaves I have had no clogs.

My only complaint is the bag is a pain to empty without a helper. If you are planning on using paper bags for pickup I have had to empty to a wheel barrow and then load the bags. Purchased a large yard funnel so... more

Waited A Few Years To Get This
I got a TKV650SPH after looking at them and others for a few years. I used it this weekend on wet soaked leaves and was impressed how well it works, It pulls a little hard but started first pull every time and the bag full of wet leaves can be heavy but I just dumped it sooner.

I got the hose attachment and it was perfect for our rock gardens and hard to reach places. I must say I would not get one that does not have the self propelled option. It was a lot of money for me, but worth every... more

New Is Better!!
I've been a Billy Goat owner for 12yrs. You definitely appreciate new equipment when in hand. This unit gets the job done, and I'm looking forward for the next 12yrs or more to come!
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again, Glad To Ditch The Old Zipper Bag
Cons: A Little On The Loud Side With The Honda Motor

Equipment To Ramp Up Your Mulching And Composting
This is my first equipment of this type. I have ordered things truck freight and I am super impressed with how quickly this arrived. When you have a lot of leaves and debris, it is amazing how fast the bag fills.

Probably not necessarily viewed as a happy feature if your goal is to just remove, although it does a great job of that. However, if you are trying to accumulate material for mulching and composting, which I am, I know I'll never have to buy the stuff or have it hauled in.... more

Brad,
I am sorry to hear of the self-propel feature no longer working on your Billy Goat leaf vacuum. I would recommend using the Billy Goat: Service Locator to determine the closest place to you to have this looked at an possibly repaired under warranty.

Once again I apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate you reaching out to us.

Brad,
I do apologize for your dissatisfaction in the Billy Goat product you ordered. Often manufacturers do not ship these units with oil in an effort to avoid this from spilling during shipment. This unit will accept your standard 30 weight oil that can be purchased at any local hardware store.

Once again I do apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will reach out to us in the future for any of your power equipment needs.

It's Just Ok
While it does very well at vacuuming, it does not shred very well. I have oak trees and most of the leaves remain whole or just get cut in half. It is very hard to get started. I have to use starter fluid when it is cold. It is really difficult to empty the bag if it gets more than half full since it gets so heavy. The self propel function works really well.
Pros: Self Propelled
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Expensive, Hard To Start

Great Value
I recently purchased this machine. The suction is incredible. I ran it through a dense carpet of leaves (First time I had picked up leaves this season), and the machine worked flawlessly. Very powerful. Works best on dry leaves. The wet stuff tends to clog the discharge shoot.

Machine out of the box will chop up leaves into smaller pieces, allowing for a higher yield per disposable leaf bag. I like the machine alot. And highly recommend this model for the added convenience of the on board... more
