    Call Jerre over in Erie Pa. He sells Downeaster and seems to be quite informed about their products.

    Good Luck Mike

    I bought one at the end of last year at it works great this year. I haven't had any problems with at all yet. I use about 5-6 ton per salt event and it handles it great all night long.
