We currently use a 16hp billygoat loader. Machine is in 4th season obvious wear on the intake tube, and exhaust elbow. Only problem I have with it is it is a little slow for the pace we move at now. 5ppl currently vs- 2-3ppl.(last season) I've been looking at the 27hp little wonder as a upgrade option. Mainly because I will be able to mount it the same way as the current machine is mounted: Just behind the tonge of the trailer. Have any of you have made a similar upgrade? And if so will the time saved make up 5.5k price tag on the machine. I beleive I paid 3.5k for the billygoat. If the increase in productivity isn't suffcient enough. I will have to go with a tow-behind upwards of 45hp Giant-vac maybe?
