Here's the deal. I bought this leaf loader used last year with the intentions of using it for fall clean-ups. It never happened and I no longer have a need for a leaf loader..... It will need some work. I have had the engine running, and it runs well. It is electric start only, but something is wrong with the wiring. I don't figure it would take much to figure out. Also, it will need a 12" intake hose and the hardware to mate it to the unit. Overall it appears to be in good condition. It's very heavy and should have plenty of life left in it. I paid just over $1000 for it, but will settle to let it go for $900 obo. Located in Manhattan, Kansas. PM me if interested.
