    sure Steve, I run 2.5 off my 370


    works just dandy.

    Reading manuels I just don't know how they measure CFM??

    Same blower on both units?

    370 is spinning slightly faster.

    If you look at the pdf's on both machines there's 2 7/8th inch hose off both blowers and 2.5 on both waste tanks to front on machine.

    I believe the gtx2 with a water cooled engine will have more heat and longer engine life.

    The only thing I can think of would be the sapphire unit is 317 cfm @13hg

    And the Prochems is 406 cfm wide open.

    Looking at the Denver garner PDF for this blower also tells you something about these numbers.

    I love the new peak gtx2 but those numbers don't look feasible.

    No one seems to measure the cfm at the hose. They just give you the manufacturers blower specs. Same as the porty guys.

    Ok so I decided to go with one of john olsons refurbished peaks. Brand new 4006 blower and brand new liquid Koehler . You would think this thing is brand new for almost 6k dollars less than new. I think adding a liquid cooled unit gave me the best bang for my buck. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from an air cooled garage mount nightmare . I'm super excited. This will make building the second truck so much easier and will improve our business for years to come
