I've been pricing leaf loaders in the last few days. For a 16 h.p. prices range anywhere from 2100.00 to 2900.00 new. Well I have came across a big leaf loader. The guy is going to let me check it out for a couple of days. It is a giant-vac with a 4 cylinder gas engine on it. I went to the giant-vac site and it has to be either the 30 or 60 h.p. model. Anyway the guy bought it from a town that bidded it off. I'm sure that the town keep good maintanence on it. All it needs is some paint. The unit has 1600 hours on it, don't really know but with that engine it should have plenty of life left in it. As big as it is I'm guessing it is the 60 h.p. vac. beings that it was used in a city. What would be a fair price to offer the guy beings he does not use it and probably got it for cheap. I'll be pulling it behind a 1 ton dump bed truck. The bed is 12'x7' and I'm going to put 4' high sides and back on it with a heavy duty tarp on the top. Thanks.
