Ahh ok, its a Ninja! I have been using one in my shop for 5 years. Good workhorse, but you need to know how to replace parts as they do go from time to time. NEVER run acid rinse in this ninja or you are looking at a new pump within a few months.

Mine is dual 3 stage vacs
500psi pump which actually produces about 200psi lol

I have a ninja porty 500psi. It works great. Light enough to get in and out of the van for one person. for me anyway.

I have been running acid in my Ninja's for 15 years. Never had a pump go yet.
Actually this machine is not a Ninja. It is called a E1000 (from Esteam). yah I know it looks like a ninja.

In fact when you buy one from me I GIVE a free gallon of Acid rinse :)

Century in U.S. and Esteam in Canada share the molds. That one in the picture is an Esteam. The late Bill Shero did a great job on the design. The one improvement that I think would help is the wheels having a wheel well to shield them from banging into corners of walls. Esteam is a very good company.

What psi are you running? What is the purpose of the hour meter? The color looks real good.

John
On machines with 500 psi, the pump needs to be serviced at 1000 hours. This got me to liking the hour meters on my demo units so people know I'm not full of it when I claim it has only been used x number of times. So now I ask the factory to put hour meters on all my machines.

The one in the photo is 250 psi.

This actually seems like a good idea. Do you happen to have a picture of the hour meter?

Would be a good way to determine when/how long pumps, vacs, etc. last. Thanks again.

Hour gauges used to be a popular feature way, way back in the very late 60's & early '70's--thru the '80s. The purpose was for the Operator to recognize when to grease (maintenance) their vacuum pump (sutorbilt) &/or pressure pump (piston style; roller). (A hour gauge is similar to mileage on a automobile; & when to change ones oil, etc).

In those days, a large majority of pumps had grease serts.


The very best to all;
