leaf loader

I am thinking about getting into the leaf pick up for other landscapers in my area. the towns dont pick up the leafs unless they are in those paper bags. i think there is a big market for someone with a loader and dump. this year i only picked up from my lawn customers and i used a 1985 or 87 little wonder 11hp push blower. back then hoses were an option for the intake and discharge side of the unit. she wasnt pretty but she did get the job done for what i had to do and it beat tarping them into the trailer. my question is for you guys that are already set up in this do you prefer the billy goat or little wonder leaf loaders and what size engine. I have been comparing the 25 hp billy goat to the 27 hp little wonder. I know they are big but i have a feeling that this will really take off considering i had people asking me everyday that i was out with this rigged up set up that i was using "what is that? how does it work?" people saying they had never seen a leaf loader before. what do you guys think?
