Well since nobody has posted I will just say that when I posted the same question a few years ago I was told that for the same $ you can get a much bigger ro.

Well then I say get that person to buck up and tell us the company that is making a machine that has all the bells and whistles and quality of the CDL for the same price and is bigger.

I looked at and read the specs and operating instructions for the CDL, and it looks like a decent machine that would work well. There are cheaper options, (such as Ray Gingerich's), but you don't get the temp gauges, SS sediment pre-filter canister, or recirculation pump like the CDL looks to have. I have one of Gingerich's electric 125s, and it works well, and runs on 220, versus the regular 110 that the CDL runs on I believe. Used might get you bigger for similar bucks, or one of Ray's new ones could also probably get you bigger for less bucks. But then, like others have noted, you don't get "factory" support like you would with CDL. Just my two cents, good luck!
take care, Mark

I wasent informed. I believe they were referring to homebuilt or other kind.
