I have a Giant Vac with the 16 hp Vanguard. I've had it for 4 seasons. No problems what so ever. I should have bought the bigger model though, since I have commercial accounts with huge freakin piles that i need to get rid of wet or dry :(

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but, u sure u need a vac?

My suggestion for leaves:
1. Buy gator magnum blades for your wb.
2. Buy an accelerator bagger for your wb.
3. Blow out leaves in beds into lawn.
4. Mow lawn once or twice w/ gator blades to chop up leaves.
5. Mow lawn with bagger attached.

Leaves are shredded better than with vac, easier to manuver mower than vac, one less engine to maintain

That's my 2 cents, hate to see u borrow money for something u really don't need
