Isen one of these in an F550 andit was 1.8 yrds and had an extension to get anothe 1/2 on top.It looks well built,is stainless and I love the quick release chute,pull two pins and you can set it on the ground flat of dump with it in the truck.Does anyone have these and how much do they cost (gas engine).

I think they are close in price to most others. They are built out of lighter gage metal, and are very light. If you want another all electic check out a downeaster, they are priced very well.<p>I think the i go away are built in CT.<p><br>Geoff<br>

Geoff,I have a gas powered unit(5hp briggs),I have no experience with electric,but if you say that they are good and proven I'd try one.I just cant see a 12V motor having enough power to throw sand and convey it to.<p>----------<br>John D<br>

I had a hard time believe it myself. My brother is an eletrical engineer and told me that with the right motor it's not an issue. I am sure that when the build the electric sanders, they find an engineer to find the right motor. I don't own an electric one, only i have talked to someone about them and he has had no problems.<p>Geoff

Is there a price difference? Just what my alternator needs another high amperage draw in the middle of a snowstorm!I bet the electric is lighter-defintely alot quieter around residetials is a plus.<p>----------<br>John D<br>

I think the electric is less money. I would want at least a 95 amp, thats all they have in their electic sander. It is set up on a F 250 HD pick up. The other thing that my brother told me if i ever got one was to do add an extra battery. Get a deep cycle marine battery something that really holds a charge and takes a beating. When you wire the sander add the battery at some place in the system. This will build up an electric reserve, which will make the draw a lot less. The other thing is the motors used on all electric sanders are designed to run cool for a long period of time, with a very small power spike at start up. So electic motors will require a huge draw to start them up, and once they are running slow right down, these motors require little to start, and the draw isn't too bad.

It will be nice to get the &quot;big one&quot;. We have missed two good size storms this week, up in maine. They have gone too far out to sea, maybe this next one will hit us. I have this tv card so i can watch tv and write at the same time, explains some of my typos.<p>Geoff
