    I am going to buy a leaf loader for my fall clean ups. Does anyone have any suggestions or recomendations for what brand I should buy. I have about 60 Clean ups to do and need a system that I can count on. Thanks

    We use a Billygoat 16hp... Plenty of power to suck up a bunch of leaves. But, If you you want more producitivity and shear power go with the 23hp either way I would reccommend BG...

    I have a billy goat with a 20 hp on trailer. It will take the shoe laces right out of your shoes! :D

    I used to use a 27hp Giant vac (i believe that was the hp, it was high). I loved that machine, almost sucked a small dog up one time, not joking! It did suck up a snake one time though.

    Buy one with an internal housing liner. This way you won't have to replace the blower housing when it wears out. They don't last very long.
