Billy Goat Industries Inc.
The Billy Goat PR550 power rake weighs more than competitive units, maintaining better contact with the thatch layer with less of the surging and stalling commonly found in units weighing less.
Because the rotation is down sweep, the flails propel the PR forward, negating the additional weight.
Most power rakes vibrate excessively at the operator handle, but not the PR.
Because of the additional weight, and a 7gauge steel engine base, the PR absorbs most of the vibration before it is transferred to the handle
The PR design also has fewer parts than competitive units, making fewer adjustments necessary. Billy Goat was also first to use construction grade cast iron bearings. This makes lubrication and reel changeover a breeze.
