Farm hoover

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.
