I know that Lesco doesn't make there own leaf loaders. Does anymore know who makes them or where you can get parts for them? I dont think they sell them in Lesco/John Deere anymore or do they? Thanks

I bought parts for ours in the fall of 07 and everything was still available then. I can't imagine they wouldn't get parts for you.

i'm pretty sure Cub Cadet made those along with all the other equipment Lesco used to sell. try checking with your local JDL/ Lesco rep, i know they are still trying to get rid of equipment from before the buy out, may be able to get a good deal....

We have 2- 16hp Lesco Leaf Loaders

No problem getting parts directly from JDL/Lesco. Takes alittle bit longer to get parts, than it did in the past though.

In response to another post, I do not believe Cub Cadet makes them. In fact, I'm pretty sure Cub Cadet doesn't make their own anything...

I'm thinking of purchasing one. How are they as far as quality compared to a little wonder or giant vac?

I have a lesco, and it is very good, however, even with 16hp it can clog easy with wet leaves or dirt mixed with leaves and sticks. The loader is made by a company called SALSCO, they have the exact same model in a orange color. GOod luck with your Lesco

Then explain to me why all the old Lesco equipment looked just like the Cub equipment, and now Cub has begun offering all things commercial.... John Deere is a competitor of Cub, thats why they gave them the boot after they bought Lesco. Cub had to go to other dealers to start selling their stuff. Skid sprayers that used to be green... are now yellow. Push spreaders that used to be green... are now... you guessed it, YELLOW. I believe they do make their own equipment and used to sell it Lesco for them to brand as their own.

As the other man said, a company called SALSCO from Connecticut makes the LESCO product. Maybe Cub stuff and older Lesco stuff was manufactured by some other company, but the newer Lesco is by Salsco. I own a newer Lesco and have ordered parts from Salsco for it. In answer to the OP's request, the Lesco leaf loader is a beast with the 16 horse Vanguard engine. I would recommend it highly...:drinkup:
