Goats are very much part of the current horticultural trend. Some companies now even hire out herds of goats for clearing dense scrub, brush and other unwanted vegetation from meadows and paddocks. Sadly they will also eat your lovingly tended rosebushes, so aren’t desperately practical for the domestic gardener. But while you may have to continue weeding the flowerbeds by hand (at least until a goat-resistant rose is bred), Billy Goat’s KV650H four-wheeled leaf vacuum provides a brilliantly efficient way of keeping even the largest gardens clear of loose leaves, dirt, litter and other debris.
Ideal for both residential and light commercial use, the KV650H is powered by a reassuringly tough and hi-tech 187cc Honda GSV190 four-stroke petrol engine. As well as being fuel efficient and pleasingly quiet running, the GSV190 also features a cast-iron cylinder liner and a dual element air cleaner for an increased life and greater reliability. Fitted with a high capacity 1.5 litre fuel tank in order to increase run time and reduce the number of fuel stops required during the working day, the KV650H therefore provides an effective way of tackling heavier workloads with the bare minimum of hassle.
A hand-propelled model, the KV650H also offers exceptional manoeuvrability when traversing tricky areas of lawn and negotiating borders and obstacles. What’s more, with its large rubber tyres and variable height adjustment system the KV650H is also capable of producing great results on both lawns and hard surfaces (such as paths, driveways and forecourts). To ensure exceptional efficiency, the KV650H features both an optimised nozzle configuration and a tough five-blade impeller; these two features complement one another perfectly, with the nozzle configuration boosting suction power and the impeller’s serrated blades working to reduce the size of the material collected.
By cutting leaves, twigs and other light debris like this, the KV650H makes the very most of the generous 151 litre capacity of its collection bag. Made from breathable material and hard-bottomed for added stability, this collector will serve admirably even in the depths of autumn when ankle-deep in leaves, saving time and effort otherwise spent on frequent trips for disposal. A clever no-zip design featuring two easy-opening, marine-style clasps, meanwhile, provides added user convenience and ensures a longer life for the collection bag.
Built to last and compatible with a variety of optional accessories (including a handy hose kit for vacuuming in hard to reach areas, and a weatherproof cover for added protection when not in use), Billy Goat’s KV650H is therefore a great way of ensuring that your garden stays looking great all year round. Billy Goat vacuums have even been known to run for more than twenty years, and with either a one year machine and two-year engine (consumer) warranty, or a one-year engine (commercial) warranty included as standard you can therefore rest assured of a long and reliable service life.
