i just picked up my billygoat 16 hp leaf vac last week and i paid right about $3,000 for mine too. Hi-way leaf vacs had a good deal on there website for their leaf vac, but you have to order factory direct.

How do you like yours? I have been thinking about getting one to mount on the front of my trailer. I really would like to see one operate before I bought one. I think I will find a local LCO around here that has one to check them out.

cant really tell you how much i like it yet. im getting a box built on my dump trailer next week and should have it all set to go. all i have to do is wait for the leaves to fall now.

I just got mine delivered about 2 weeks ago, got a Hi-Way TGV-16. 16 B/S engine, recoil start. I got it for 1349.00 plus $150.00 for shipping. They are not making leaf loaders anymore, but will have parts for that model. I can't say as to how it works cuz no leaves yet, also building box for my old 85 F-150. You could probably order one thru their web site, believe its highwayequipment.com.

ps they had 11 hp ones and tow behind ones also.

I went to the www.highwayequipment.com site and it seems like maybe they are out of that product? They have 2 other loaders listed, but not that one, maybe they sold out? I will email for info and see, but if anyone knows anything now, let me know, that seems like a good price anyway.
