Farm hoover

Location

Looking at getting a new hoover for the drier/grain store. Any recommendations? Have looked at the big brute but seems very expensive. Agri linc have a couple that are a lot more reasonably priced, anyone tried them?

Got a Brigadier from APM about 4 years ago and its never missed a beat. IIRC I think it was about £1000 + vat which was about half price of a Brute at the time.

I bought a cheaply from Aldi for £20.holds about 25 litres and been fine for tractor cleaning etc.depends how much you want to suck up.had a dustbin one years ago with motor on top.probably held 80 kegs but then too heavy to move unless on a pallet
