We are speciality electrical, mechanical and fire alarm contractors and we end up with literally miles of wire to salvage. We recently retired our first generation machine and are now using the E2000X for reclamation.. The new machine is much easier to set-up and runs incredibly quietly. In operation at reasonable speed we are able to strip better than 40lbs of #12 building wire an hour which is at least double the throughput of the 1st generation machine we have. Instead of rebuilding the tired 1st generation machine we are likely to order another E2000X so that we don't have to reset the size wire being processed so often. If you reclaim, recycle, or salvage any significant quantity of copper or aluminum wire, this is the machine to have.
