Trafalgar Cleaning Equipment have the best selection of garden vacuums to buy online at the lowest prices in the UK. You will notice on our website that when it comes to garden Leaf & Litter collection, only one brand of lawn vacuums dominates our range - Billy Goat; and there is a very good reason for this, Billy Goat garden leaf vacuums offers by far the best range of leaf and litter vacuums on the market today by providing not only quality and durability but also machines that suit all specific applications.
When buying a wheeled leaf vacuum you have a number of choices as there are many other makes of machines available yet none that match the performance of the Billy Goat range.
The most popular by far in the Billy Goat range is the Billy Goat KV600 Leaf & Litter Vacuum which is ideally suited to the domestic homeowner with medium to large sized gardens containing a good number of trees and shrubs. The KV600 is best used in gardens that are of a flat nature, as the KV600 does not come with a drive system. However, the lack of self-drive makes it very manoeuvrable and the large wheels that Billy Goat fit to their lawn and litter vacuums make them very easy to use.
If you have an uneven lawn or driveway, a self-propelled machine will be of a definite advantage to you, and the Billy Goat KV600SP Leaf & Litter Vacuum will be an excellent choice for this. Both the KV600 and KV600SP machines utilise the reliable and robust Briggs and Stratton 6hp engines and feature a large, serrated 5-blade impeller that creates unbelievable suction and also helps to reduce the volume of debris collected.
Another amazing feature of the Billy Goat leaf vacuums are their adaptability to either hard surface work — such as clearing leaves from a patio — or leaf removal from lawn areas that is achieved with the built in height adjustment function, allowing you to alter the suction rate to suit the conditions.
There are two other very popular machines in the Billy Goat range of lawn vacuums, both are very similar to the two previouse models, but the Billy Goat KV650H Leaf & Litter Vacuum and Billy Goat KV650SPH Leaf & Litter Vacuums are powered by top of the range reliable and robust Honda 6.5hp petrol engines. The functions and features on either machine are the same as the KV600 and KV600SP vacuums, the choice depending on whether a Briggs and Stratton or Honda engine is preferred.
The Billy Goat KV vacuums also have the benefit of the optimised front nozzles to improve the suction and it allow for debris such as hedge clippings to be consumed instantly. The breathable bottom mesh turf bag that is fitted as standard to the KV Series is excellent for use in damper conditions, leaf collection on lawns.
Billy Goat Hose Kit. If you are going to be regularly be using your Billy Goat leaf collector during the summer months where there are dusty conditions, it is worth purchasing the optional felt bag and this will greatly reduce the dust blowing into the operator’s face.
There are more optional extras available for the KV Series that include the on-board hose kit that will make much lighter work of vacuuming those hard to reach areas such as flowers beds, between shrubs, under decking and the corners of patios and BBQ areas. And if you need to regularly clear hard surfaced areas of leaves, like tarmac areas for example, then the caster kit and nozzle wear plate are both excellent investments. The caster kit will greatly help manoeuvrability.
There is one more machine in the Billy Goat range of lawn vacuums which is the Billy Goat TKV650SPH Leaf & Litter Vacuum. The TKV650SPH offers the same performance as the other Billy Goat vacuums reviewed here, yet the TKV650SPH has the advantage of a built in 2” chipper chute, which means that you can pick up and shred fallen branches, twigs etc that will not fit through the main feeder nozzle.
