    Looks good and sounds like they may have addressed some of their electrical issues...

    though it looks like they have addressed some issues.......

    11ft spray patern?? I dont trust it! I have never gotten 11ft from the spray pattern from the centri unit or the ultra unit, and with the new placement of the nozzels....i have serious doubts about 11 ft

    5 mph?? time to kick up that speed, other machines out there are doing 8 mph!

    overall i'd say it does look improved....but they still got a ways to go and i notice there is no mention of price? I do have a problem paying thousands of dollars for a product and basicly I become the tester of the product!
    I 'tested' the centri for around 200 hours and paid around $4200
    I 'tested' the ultra for around 100 hours and paid around $4800

    Time, in my opinion, they test these machines them selves in real world service conditions before they ask me to pay.....i'm guessing around $5500??

    well if they want to send me 1 to test i will give it a good workout and give my my centri a rest!
    i have made some improvements to my centri to make it more better.
    i have been waiting for the new 1 to come out and now it has but i want to see 1 before i spend my $ on it!!
    i didnt like the ultra so i did not buy it but i have to look at adding another machine so this may be it.
    i bought my centri sight unseen and have been happy with it but before i do it again i want to try it out and make sure it will continue to make me more competitive in my market.

    I couldnt say it better!!

    Here are the few things I see as big improvemts,

    Fender over wheels, bigger gas tank in a easy to fill area, larger spray tank, larger hopper, better lever to open hopper.

    But, with their track record for us (the buyer) being their R&D dept. I would never buy from them again, no matter how many improvements. I just couldnt do it.

    One change I did notice is that they have once again reduced their buy back warranty. No more 100 hours, just 30 days.
