    Fork at Walmart $9.99

    Try an ad in a penny saver type paper for a used one maybe. I bought mine at a repossessed auction.

    Our original Leaf Vacuum was from Landscapers Supply, had it for 8 seasons used hard until the motor finally went on it. It wasn't the prettiest machine but it worked well, had an 11hp Briggs & Stratton I/C. We may rebuild the motor this winter and use it as a second machine next season. We bought a Lesco last season and had a lot of problems with the motor, but it is working great now after new rods and heads. I guess it all depends on how much money you want to spend and how much you'll be using it.

    CANTOO has it right, I would have suggested a 'tarp N rake'..
    cheep is just that. Look at your list of toys and you want a cheap leaf loader, go dig up one of the cans you have buried in the back yard and purchase something that will do the job.
