    I have 3 different sizes , 2inch , a 2.5 inch and a 3.5 inch . The smaller one is kight , uses a smaller hose , but is too small for a 1.5 pvc sleeve. It is also less accurate over longer distances due to its weight , power and lenght. I recommend the 2.5 as a more versitle , the downfall is the weight , its heavy and you have to dig a longer ditch. But its more accurate , goes thru harder ground better and a 1.5 pvc sleeve with bell ends will go thru . My big 3.5 rarely gets used . As far as brands I have no preferance , I bought mine used all 3 are different and all work fine

    I agree about buying anything on those sites, can't go wrong on a key, though.
