The future is bright for simplified leaf cleanup for Large Contractors and Municipalities

LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (August 9, 2022) – Billy Goat®, a brand of Briggs & Stratton®, is pleased to announce the release of its new flagship leaf loader, the DL3700VETR Leaf Dragon™. The unit offers a fuel efficient 37 gross HP*, EFI Vanguard® 933cc engine that is coupled to a 25” diameter shredding impeller with a long span belt for increased life, and generates 6,900 CFM of high volume leaf suction.

The engine features electric start with automotive style cold weather starting that is ideal for late fall cleanups and is up to 25%** more fuel efficient than the carbureted models, helping to save valuable time and money during the season.

In addition, the unit features true curbside intake with a large 16-in. diameter x 10-ft long intake hose that is ergonomically supported with a three-position locking boom, allowing for 45 sq. ft. of clean-up coverage before moving the unit. This is double the curbside reach of most other units on the market, offering large jumps in crew productivity. The design also eliminates wear on the rear intake for increased durability. The unit’s double-loop hose handle provides three unique operator positions for added operator ergonomics.

For quick impeller and liner inspection, the Leaf Dragon features a no-tool, two-pin door closure that is safety interlocked and eliminates the time and effort it takes to remove over 15 bolts for impeller access on other units on the market, encouraging preventative maintenance for longer life of the loader.

A unique 12-in. wide, 10-gauge soft angle steel discharge chute eliminates the twists found on other units to more effectively spread the load, reduce wear, and improve service.

The road ready DOT trailer is integral to the unit and is fully wired with LED lights for smooth and safe operation. It features wide leaf-spring axles and an adjustable hitch that accepts a standard 2-5/16” ball. The unit also comes complete with wheel chocks, a cone and cone holder, as well as convenient rake holders.

The Leaf Dragon burns through leaf cleanups fast with less fatigue, and is marked for unrivaled, high-volume leaf removal.
