    I am looking to buy a truckloader, and my local dealer sells Giant-Vac truckloaders. I am looking at an 11 horse unit, it will be used on the back of a dump trailer. Is this a good unit or what else would you guys recommend? Mulching leaves is not an option here.

    some years ago I had a Giant Vac 11hp loader.

    Sure you can pack more into the truck, yes you don't have to dump as often.

    You lose a guy at the nozzle
    sticks and other debris that may not be seen can clog the hose or the outlet. The noise and dust. Needed 4 men to lift off the truck. Need another truck for the sticks and fallen branches.

    Found it easier and faster without the loader.

    A nice toy to try for a year or two.

    I agree with getting a 16 hp unit. I've had a Billy Goat for a couple of seasons and it makes fall clean-ups alot easier. I believe Giant-Vac makes a good unit also.
  6. I like this one, it's a 30hp.


    I had all those problems with my dump trailer, that's why the bigger vacs. Ever since i got the bigger one, leaf removal has been a breeze and very profitable.
