Can you test out the power settings to see if they hurt as much as the older unit does?

After you figure out how to get the plastic wrap off, let us know how that bad boy works.

haven't got that far boss.

i spoke to bruce this morning while i was loading the truck, he told me to be careful with the battery door wire. very good advise. if not for the warning notice (how many of us read instructions anyway) i may have jerked the wiring loose.

i'll run a system or two and then make some comments.

my hope is that with the po-800 i won't be carrying near the gear anymore.

That's for the apprentices to learn: the 521 sure has a bite.

How are you going to justify your rates with less gear on the truck? I always thought it was add gear = raise rates...

NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want!!

I still haven't even seen the tech 800 we just got . If I remember I will ask the guy who got it how it is.

Jim,

lol so far since you told me about step 2 way over a year ago on the 521 to hook up the ground to the zone. I've been 100% successful with finding valves with an extremely reasonable amount of time.
