Don't forget to try a Billy Goat. We've got the DL25 and the new DL35 Debris loaders.

I've never done it personally but I don't see how it couldn't. We're shooting a video tomorrow where were going to suck up a Thanksgiving dinner, whole pumpkins, and even a blow up doll at the end. Are you going to GIE/EXPO? We'll have hole pumpkins there for customers to suck up to see/feel the incredible power.

Monster is giant vac. Giant vac went out of biz in 2011. Monster is what the employees started when the lost their jobs. Smart entrepreneurs they have the new patent for the serrated fan blades. They look sick. Look for a giant vac 2011 left over for 25% off cost. I almost spent 7200 on the monster 28 hp subaru but instead I think im buying the giant vac left over 29 vanguard instead for 5250 The dealer will fully warranty it.

Can you link a news story or something to verify that. That's the first iv ever heard of them out of business and their site a year later is still functioning. I could find nothing on them going out with a quick search. Brigs an stratton owned them which is some serious backing did they really let them fail and go? Or what I suspect in this case did you dealer just give up the giant vac dealership and has an ax to grind.

No I cannot link a story sorry. You cannot buy giant vac anymore they said. I'm just relaying what our dealer told us. So I guess it's hear say. I could be totally wrong but being a family friend for over20 years. No reason to lie like that to me. So I believe what he said.
