Still don't know exactly what it is you are looking for. Describe what it's supposed to do.

If you haul leaves away, they are definately worth it.

But it really helps to have the proper set up for it. By this I mean a way to hold and dump the leaves your sucking up.

A dump truck or trailer, or a pick up with dump insert is what you need. Trying to unload a a box on a regular truck bed by hand is a nightmare. A truck loader really packs them in tight.

Definitely worth the investment if you have the proper set up like gogetter mentioned. Otherwise, you're looking at a wasted hour of your own labor to get them out of a pick-up. Keep in mind, there isn't much daylight out there in the Fall to get these leaves done, time is money and very precious. Work smart.

Do a search for truck loaders, debris loaders. There are lots of pictures on this site. Some guys have some slick set ups.
Walker Talker and ksland have 2 of the slickest I have seen, they both have posted pictures here before.
Like the others said take the time and money to be set up or you are wasting the capabilites of the loader.
Good Luck\
