    Not sure but i tried to get a new debris loader and I was told that lesco is no longer making them and that there are not anymore left overs to be found. Good Luck!

    The Billygoat has 30% more cfm than the Lesco. I have a 16 hp Billygoat.

    I tried out a 23 hp Billygoat at a trade show last year (even with wet leaves). It totally made the 16 hp seem lousy. I want one. Why are you selling yours? going bigger?

    I have the 16hp and too would recommend more hp. 23hp would be better, but 30hp would be ideal .....and expensive.

    Why I'm selling.Getting out of business maybe and its cheaper for me to just have someone else I know suck up the leaves instead of paying storage. yes I would have to pay storage for this thing. I have no real property in my name

    As of 2 years ago, the Lesco has more than the Billygoat and GiantVac.

    The cfm used to be posted on Salsco.com for the lesco unit. I compared all 3 then and found the Lesco to have a little more than all 16hp units and cost less. No brainer.
