    I was at Lesco this afternoon grabbing some more Dimension and I noticed that they finally got a Magnum in. I think that it seems to be a very well built machine. The hopper dwarfs the more familiar 80lb lesco standard push hopper by a large margin! I stood on it and all of the controls seemed to be within easy reach. I would like to demo one, but today I simply had no time. It looks great from an observational standpoint, but I want to see what the owners of them say later on, like in October or something. Well for now, one can only dream... :sleeping:

    You would think there would be some feedback by now with the Southern guys.

    I have about 20 hours on mine now. So far I am happy with it. One thing to watch out for though, The first one I looked at had an oil leak so I took the next one that came in. I put it right to work and it developed an oil leak. It comes to find out it was filled with to much oil. The original one I was going to pick up was also shipped with to much oil. So I suggest when you pick your up yours that you check the oil the first thing.

    Thanks for the tip, thoms... I pick mine up Friday... and, luckily, I just got a new contract for 120,000 sq. at a condo... I knew it was the right decision! :p

    We have about 10 hours on ours and the only inherant problem I see is that on rougher terrain the push bar for the hopper tends to work its way closed, so I have to rig it for now. Anyone else have this problem?
