LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (August, 2020) – The nationally recognized magazine serving landscape professionals names the Billy Goat® Next Gen Debris Loader series a Green Industry Pros 2020 Editor’s Choice award winner. The award represents the industry’s best products gaining interest from end users and landscape professionals alike. Winners are chosen on several different factors, including innovation and dependability, as well as audience engagement on

The Next Gen Debris Loader series feature a square 10 gauge steel discharge chute that not only spreads to load but also has a 63% thicker back plate for added durability, extended life and ease of service. Additionally, the poly housing liner features a non-counter sunk bolt pattern that has equal to or better life compared to quarter-inch steel liners in accelerated testing. These composite liners won’t cause secondary failures to engine shafts like a failed steel liner may.

Electric start is featured on the 14.0*, 18.0*, 29.0* and 37.0* gross HP models, with Vanguard® EFI power on the 37.0 gross HP loader ― the only Vanguard® EFI powered unit on the market. EFI delivers easy automotive-type cold weather starting as well as fuel savings up to 25 percent over carbureted equivalents†. And the new Vanguard®-powered 14.0 gross HP* unit is the only electric start on the market in its class.
