The GD Tri flow 406 @317 has about 85% of the 47 @375 CFM. That is open flow before restrictions. The belt drive Amtex have more CFM I would think since they can change with ratio on the pulley. I'm not saying Amtex is bad. I am just saying Sapphire is good. I am happy with mine.

Your talking about a 4007 tri lobe blower. Amtex uses a dual lobe 47 blower producing about 528 cfm at max rpm. So a lot more suction

cool, Belt is able to give you more RPM's than direct coupled. One other thing is the SS 370 is only running @ 2800 RPM's the Blower close to 3400

I was wondering what machine you guys think would be more reliable? The amtex machine has more power but I dont want to give up reliability for more power
I've had the Amtex stack 3047 since 2011 and for me, Amtex was the right choice. My machine is easy to work on and maintain. Plus Ben has always been more than available and helpful anytime I had questions. I love my Amtex

I'm only happy when I get to lick the salty tears from baby kitten's eyes.

That's only because he isn't comparing apples to apples. The sapphire is a slim sexy biatch that packs a punch and the amtex is like a fat whore that sucks rug really good.
Some guys are not into the slim type, the prefer wide ;)
