Yes, I didnít even think of that. I was an electrician years ago and I had to rewire a prefab log house plant because they bought some new equipment. The added load effected the all the existing equipment so I had to change everything from 220V to 440V

Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.

I acually did use Oneida for a reason. When I first started to inquire about DC i was doing google searches and basically had conversations with just about everyone one out there. Mark @ Oneida seemed to have the best answers to all my questions. I know they all claim to have high CFM and performance but you really do take a chance when dealing this way. It was a little pricey(3grand for everything) but considering I order the DC on a Tuesday and it was at my house on friday i thinks thats amazing. Mark @ Oneida has called me a few times since to see how things are. unfortunately I haven't even started to put it up yet, so its just sitting there. Oneida only uses Baldor motors that are serviceable. Many motor shops wont service foreign motors, and we all know things happen. I've unpacked everything just too see if there is any damage and its a solid well built machine, no MDF or plastic. If you have anymore questions please feel free to let me know. Thanks

I know Oneida is awesome just wondering if you had specific reasons like them designing the system or something. Please more pics soon.

I don't blame you at all for the Oneida. I think you probably did the right thing. If I were going to change anything about my DC I would have went with the 5Hp instead of the 3HP just for the extra power. There is minimal cost when upgrading but I needed an additional 6 inches of ceiling height and the two filters would have taken up a little too much room in my DC/ air compressor room.

Heres to another Johnny user. You have a big boy - Is that a 5*** series? 5103 maybe?
I do not think you can have big equipment like that without some form of forks and I know my tractor/loader/forks have been a HUGE help. I love your round bale rear ballast!

We have similar size tastes in WW equipment. Congrats on your haul!!
