It fills boxes tapers angle boxes . I just thought if you have two guys running boxes it would save a bit of time in the long haul and save your shoulders from pumping .think about it I've got 800 sheets this week to finish that's a lot of fill UPS .

as much as it would work I would not give that company one cent after that junk system they tried selling me, best I ever heard is pay $1000.00 for a tool washer

No experience with it, but having to haul in and power up a compressor with it each time as well doesn't sound like something I'd care to do.

If you didn't catch it, some here were discussing Cinta pumps a couple years ago. If you're not familiar with them, I wonder if they might be a possible alternative choice(?)

I think Silverstilts might use one, I have the T-Series pump. The T-Series pump works really well, it's faster loading then a hand pump, and you can feel the difference in your body at the end of the day. It looks like the Jr holds the bazooka better. You have to hold onto the bazooka while filling on the T-series, or it might fall off. I don't use it all the time, but it gets pulled out on big projects. We use a small rolair compressor when just filling the tools. I had an oiless compressor at first and it drove me crazy listening to it all day, but the new one is fine to work around.

are you talking about some like this?
How you use and clean it? is that esy?:thumbsup:
That one looks like their oiless compressor. I saw it when I was buying mine, didn't buy it because it was oiless. I heard one run a couple weeks ago though, and that thing was super quite. I never would have guessed they could make an oiless so quite lol.:blink: I have the 1.5hp 2.9 cfm, it will keep up for the most part.
