After hearing so many positive posts about the PRJ, I kept an eye out on Ebay to try and find a good deal on one. I found one that normally would fit in the 'too good to be true' category, but the user had a lot of positive feedback. It was an individual that had purchased it and couldn't return it. It was new in the box, never opened.... for $200 shipped.
I've had it for a little over a week but just opened it today and used it for the first time.
WOW! I cannot believe how well it works. It sucked up silt and sand that I couldn't even see normally. It really is an amazing machine in it's price range (even at full retail price, I would buy another one if I ever had to).
The only thing I wish it had was the built in timer. But after reading several posts, it seems the new version doesn't have a manual, but they will send an addon timer if you request it. Has anyone reading this received the addon timer? What kind of 'proof of purchase' if any did you have to provide? If I can't get one or have to pay I'll still be happy with it as is since it works very well as is.
