Hey guys just wondering if anyone has decided to cough up the money for either of these two machines? If so do you like them? how do they perform? Also how do they stack up to the old gusmer h20\35's and any other comments on them would be a great help.

I would be happy to give you some references on those units. 800.289.8272 ask for parts.

The H-40 is still a fairly new machine to the market and really hasn't field proven itself,even though the electronics,pumps,& drive system are dramatically upgraded.You can't go wrong with a 20/35,they stopped production of this unit but new machines are still available and parts are redly available.

I wouldn't say Dramatically different. It is from the 20/35 design, but not the existing Graco Units.

For example:
The pump design is still basically the same. They changed the seals(the cylinder seals more importantly) to tackle the long-known issue of cylinder leaks right after a rebuild. They also changed the check-ball assembly a little bit to give the fluid a more direct path through the pump. Everything else is still the same old design for the most part.

The heater system has been around for quite some time. They change the heater control board to a modular system, but this makes it less expensive for the contractor should they have problems with it. Instead of changing the entire control board you can just change a module. The module's are also interchangeable so this makes troubleshooting even easier, and allows you to stock just one part to fix all three if needed. They also went to a solid aluminum block for the fire rods instead of u-tubes, but this just makes them more efficient. The design is still the same.

The hydraulic drive system is still very very similar. There are some slight changes, but mainly they just changed the fan location to allow quicker cooling of the fluid. This allows a 3 gallon reservoir vs. a 25 gallon. Eliminates weight and save money on maintenance in the long run.

So while the H-40 is the youngest member of the family, its components and design are field-proven. The changes that were made will not affect long-term performance, they simply made it better.

The 20/35 was a great machine. Parts will be available for a long time to come. The H-25/H-40 are also great machines.

Again I will repeat what Robin said above, if you need references for people using these machines, let your supplier know. There are a lot of people running them, so getting opinions from the people using one instead of the people selling them should not be hard to come by.
