System Report:

The "pull through" blower configuration is providing tremendous system performance--it allows the use of a more aero dynamically designed (efficient) blower. The collection efficiency has been flawless with one 3 cubic yard container being filled per day. 

The bellows horizontal cylinder replacement has been the only needed repair--a result of extending and retracting 125 times a day!
