From working the Line I would have to go with the CFM56. On the 737NG no ladders required. During an A check there is relatively little work compared to other types. Fan balance is real easy, the onboard box tells you what to do and is usually right the after the initial spin. About the only negatives I had were; takes a lot of oil, cowl open up sucks, and changing the fuel control thingy (HMU?) sucked.
