looking to buy a leaf loader, i know it is late but i think it will pay for it self by years end and it will be helpful for spring clean ups. my question is how much hp would you recomend, is 16hp enough? My other question is on brands what is better little wonder or billy goat. thanks

I bought my billy goat for 1,200 with only half a summer use. Was from a ex boss, who got out if the biz. I would never go with out one. I have never used a lw.

i have the Salsco 16 hp unit. it clogs less than the billy goat that i had but the Billy Goat shreaded the leaves more.

Mine is up for sale...im going larger. Its has the extended shoot, and swing hitch system for your truck. Its 1 yr old with maybe 50 hrs on it so far. Unit with these options is a little under 3k. Make me an offer! Im in Ma.

just picked up a 16hp little wonder loader with the swing away option, machine is great. i checked out a few loaders and nobody had anything bad to say about lw. shreds leaves pretty good because it has an extra shredding blade inside housing. I wouldn't go any less than 16hp

I have a inline 6 cyclinder leaf vac it costs more but it is worth it..or lesco has a leaf loader starting out @ 1,200 could be more now.
