Got my shoebox (#287) a little over a week ago and this thing is fantastic. Used it to fill my 88cf 4500psi carbon fiber tank as well as my 80cf 3000 psi scuba tank. The shoebox ran like a champ :D On the carbon fiber tank it automatically shut off at 4300 psi and on the scuba tank I shut it off manually at 3000.

Tom I do have one question though. I've watched the video on installing new cylinder seals and it looks easy enough, my question is did your testing and development provide any information regarding an average as to after how many hours of operation an owner could expect a seal change to be necessary as part of preventive maintenance ?

Thank you for a wonderful product Tom.

As far as we can tell, it looks like about 100 hours average. Some way more some way less.

Pumping at over 4hrs now with no grease. Just filled a 70ci/4500. Starting another fill to top off another 70ci/4500 with no greasing. Will run with no grease and post my times untill failure.

Prior to this I have been greasing every 3 hours.
