I have been hunting leaf loaders all year at a decent price but can not find any worth buying in my eyes that is with in my distance. I don't have to pick up alot of leaves because most of my lawns have township that gets them but I do have to do some. I found a 11hp billy goat for sale with in distance for $1000 talked him down to $800 and he is meeting me half way which would be about an hour for me. Just wanted to know if it is worth buying I wanted to get a 16hp but cant find any for less than $1,800 and for that price would rather buy a new one. But this year I already spent $1000 for 2 br600's, $6000 for a husky walk behind, $800 on new trimmers, $1000 on other misc tools and also need a new salt spreader for winter for one of my trucks and prob around $2500 to get my trucks ready to go for the snow season with fluids changed and some parts and maint. Just wondering if anyone has every used a 11hp or what is your opinions on one. I have never used any of them and don't know what they really do. I plan on buying this one for this year and either selling it in the spring or summer and buying a brand new one of keeping it for a different truck and buying a new one but its just that right now I don't feel comfortable buying or financing a new one esp. with winter coming. Also I had my appendix out 2 weeks ago and I am not supposed to lift more than 30 pounds for another 4 weeks but I broke that 3 days after surgery but don't know about loading tarps and my workers can do it but I am not the type of person to watch or just blow leaves because I go nuts when there too slow and start picking up huge tarps by myself and I am also concerned this loader will suck and I will rip it off the truck and throw it down the road haha. That's why I had to get new br600's because They werent running right on a job so my temper kicked in and I slammed them on the street busting them my mistake but this year has me on the edge with loosing a friend a family member non-paying customers workers not showing up or stealing money stopped talking to my girlfriends went on vacation after 3 days learned my grandpa who raised me was in the hospitol with merca had to come back luckily he made it but then 2 weeks later had to get my appendix out and so on just want to know if it will work at all thanks. and sorry for the book of a post!!!
