    I have been looking at leaf loaders lately.

    im looking to buy a 25-35 hp range trailer tow leaf vac.

    The new Giant Vac Scags are all sold out in my region. Ive talked to the dealers and distributors within 200 miles of me and no one can get one.

    My 2 options now are the 27hp Kohler Little Wonder or the 28 hp subaru efi monster loader.

    Any thoughts on the monster?

    Ive seen the Little Wonder but not the monster.

    My dealer sells Monster leaf loaders. The one I saw was a tow behind and it looked pretty well built. I can't comment on the engine since I don't know anything about subaru's.

    The 28 Subaru is all the distributor had in stock. I was going to get the Scag Giant vac but they are sold out on in our region and they arent making anymore this year. The Monster and scag machines look the same just different colors.

    Thank you. Expensive, but I suppose if somebody has the type of properties where this is needed they probably are worth their weight in gold.

    Yes they def are. Foe me, not having to go dump my dump truck 2-3 times per day will save me tons of time also having this tool to load the leaves instead of 5 guys using a tarp to get them into the dump truck will be great.
