    I have a Parker walk behind vac, it works great. It gets really dusty when you empty the bag. I haven't used it in a coupe of years now because I ended up buying a tmyco 210 and a Johnston 4000. But that's how I got started. It also has a 12' suction hose for it too.

    We've had that billy goat model for a few years now. It works really well. Never had a problem with it. I've never done a complete lot with it, but depending on the size it could do it. We mainly use it for sidewalks. We have a Tymco 600 for our streets and lots.

    I have one that i use around my house. It is awsome for what little I've used it.

    only issues is with dust and the collection bag....keep a couple disposable dust masks on hand. Distance for repair issues and a good raltionship with service/dealer means a lot!
