I've been looking at Billy Goat truck loaders. One has a 13hp honda for 2500.00 (8 inch hose). The other has a 18hp briggs for 3200.00(10 inch hose). My question is it worth 700.00 more for the bigger one? Never used either before but I don't want to wish I got the bigger one? Input would be great

It's all on what your interested in. The HTR1803V has a 18 hp Vangard, larger housing, 10 inch intake hose and will perform better in wet conditions. The TR1304H has a 13 hp Honda, an 8 inch intake hose and is a great unit for those who are looking for a commercial grade cost sensitive unit.

Long term, I'd say the $700 will be worth it. As your business grows you may end up needing a larger truckloader quickly. The HTR will allow you to put off that purchase for years and you'll never have to appologize for performance in wet conditions.
