Today, after most of the ice and snow had melted off, a big brown truck made its way into our driveway and offloaded--
Nine - 9 - count 'em, 9 boxes---
See - sent to us
David could hardly wait to get home from work to start opening boxes and playing with his new toys (although you'd never know he was happy to look at this picture!).
We are replacing the 1-1/2hp unit with a 2-1/2hp, reconfiguring a little, and ordered the "auto-on" blast gates from PSI. So--when a gate is opened, the DC will turn on automatically. No more walking across the shop to turn on the circuit breaker (since the last remote bit the dust) or searching for the remote.
We weren't so lucky as Ken - they had the 2-1/2hp units in stock and we didn't get an upgrade , but that's okay. This one will last until we die.
