    Is it right to rate this with a con of being heavy? Isn’t this one of the lighter units of its class? the Hayward Tiger Shark QC and the Kreepy Krauly Prowler 830 are much heavier. Also, you may want to update your Top 10 list to reflect Amazon’s pricing, it may change your $$ ranges.

      Thanks for the catch on price! You’re right, we updated it.

      Re. weight, the Kreepy Krauly weighs 47 lbs, the Hayward Tiger Shark weighs 22 lbs – and the Triton weighs 19 lbs.

    Thanks for the great reviews.

    Can you verify the weights above? They don’t seem to match what the reviews say. The reviews show:
    Kreepy Krauly: 45 lbs
    Triton: 18.75 lbs
    Tiger Shark: 22 lbs

    Will the spring cleaning attachment pick up large leaves?
