    I need some suggestions on which vaccum would work the best for sucking up leaves that are damp. What size engine would you recommend. I looked at Giant vac and Billy Goat Loaders .Just wondering if there are any others out there that i have'nt heard of Thanks.

    I too am in the market for a leaf loader. If you really need one now, check out hi wayequipment. they have a 16 hp briggs on sale for $1880 factory direct. Im leaning towards the giant vac or billy goat 16 hp for myself. Ive heard many people say when they are really damp, it still wont suck them up as well, but what can ya do. i dont think it really is that much of a difference between the brands, unless somebody can tell me different?
