    I have been thinking about fall clean ups and I'm looking to buy a leaf vacuum/loader that attaches to my trailer hitch. Trac Vac and Giant Vac are the brands my dealer has and I was just looking for some input or suggestions on these or other brands. Thanks

    What kind of leaf vacuums or loaders are you guys using? Whats your favorite brand? Do you guys use trailers or trucks to load the leaves on? Any input would be great. Thanks

    Just picked up a Billy Goat 18hp electic start DL loader. Never used one but it seems a lot of guys on here run them and the price increase to the 25hp is pretty steep.

    Both companies are good. Look at warranty differences and go with the biggest one you can. I would lean towards Giant Vac, but that is what I have.
