I need to decide this in the next couple days. My primary need is for a leaf loader. So.......... If you only had about $900 to spend (and barely have that!), and you have the following two options, which do you choose? Option 1. Brand new Gaint Vac 90BP (9hp) push blower with optional hose kit (6" diam. intake & exhaust). And use it as a truck loader. $930 w/tax. Pros: Brand new, has warrenty. Can use as blower when I have a helper (I already have one new push blower). Cons: Small diam. hose. Need trailer to haul to jobs. A little more then I should be spending right now. Option 2. Used truck loader. 11hp, 10" diameter hose. About 5 yrs old. Tailgate mount. Very good condition. Between $700-750 (depending on how much I wear him down!). Pros: More hp. Bigger hose. Can take to job without trailer (for suck ups). A little more in my $$ range. Cons: Used, no warrenty. Can't use as blower. Not sure about hp to hose diameter ratio (11hp, 10" diam. hose). Ok, let me hear it.
