    Looks like a Giant vac, 30 HP many be more (I think) wisconsin motor 4 cylinder. I used have one of those way back. Expensive motor to repair, thats why I got rid of it. I personally like the Giant Vac with 25 HP, but maybe them will come out with more powerful ones with the big block air cooled in the future, hopefully 35 hp.

    It was a 30 hp wisconsin engine . I bought it used about 8 years ago so I dont know its age . I had no problems with the engine at all, it always ran like a champ. I got rid of it because Im solo now , and it got to be to much building a box on my truck and driving two trucks , one with box and one with blowers . If i was to buy one now I wouldnt get anything smaller than this one , there is no comparison between this one and the next size down .

    Thats a pretty serious vac. How long did it take to fill your box/how big was your box?
