    What do you want to do with it? That will dictate HP and capacity.

    I would think that something about 8 - 10 HP would be fine for what you need. I guess Troybuilt or White would be good.

    I have an 8 hp Sears and a 8 hp Roto-hoe. The Sears is made by MTD. It is a blower type. The Roto-Hoe is a hammer mill.

    Roto-Hoe is notin business. Also check McKissic they make an 8

    hp. good for 3". is a hammer mill which does well with leaves.

    $500-sears-mtd, Roto-Hoe 100-300. Mckissik - 1200. Ed
