    Cross American Jaguar 8.4 Review

    John; Somehow I had the feeling that eventually you couldn't hold back and would have to find a way of yhrowing a jab at your competition, which, btw, something I would not and haven't done when the tables were turned not long ago.

    questions on installing pumptec 207v

    My suggestion is this: Find a Janitor Supply House in your local area and have it professionally installed and meshed with your other components, etc. This will help eliminate a ton of problems and possible disappointments for you.

    Big D: 200 feet, not a problem, and many operators are doing that. In fact, if I recall, I think even Tim Yeater mentioned that to me as well in a test he did. Its a real workhorse to say the least! Congratulations.

    Bates Engineering, Big Red

    Bates always had a great reputation (Big Red) in this industry. And, as many manufactures know (or should) it is most difficult to be continually consistent while moving forward and having a wonderful and accredited reputation as they retained. Hope they are doing well, they deserve it.
