"Most rental machines will not put out the minimum required pressure for dense-packing. There are some local lumber yards in our area that do have such machines and they are maintained and seals replaced as needed to provide that minimum pressure."

Insulation Blower Recommendations?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a residential insulation blower?  We currently use an InsulMaxx 5000, and we've been pretty happy, but I feel like it's overkill for most of our applications.  We're usually blowing 1500-1800 lbs of celllulose per hour, and I'd prefer a 110 V service capacity to minimize generator usage.  Any brands that stand out in terms of performance and reliability?Thanks,JimSee More
