    I'm looking for some feed back, if any one has a lesco vac system is it good or bad, do you like it or not? would you buy some thing else etc. the reason I'm looking at this is the price around 2100. and has a 16hp brigs. not sure how this ranks with other units on the market. so let me here it or poss recommend something else . thanks

    I bpught one about 4 years ago and what a great piece of equipment. I don't know what you are going to mount on but when I had it on a pickup it was to powerful. It is used on a 12' stakebody and when it is full they are packed. I also have the swingaway mount. Matt
