I used the predecessor to that model for over 8 years on a 2.5 HP DC, and it was great. After I dropped the remote once too often onto the concrete floor it quit working. I replaced it with a Shop Fox (cheaper, 2 remotes) that last about a year before the thing fell apart. If you’re going to buy a commercial DC remote, stay with the Long Ranger…...unless the unit from Clearvue or a similar one, will handle your amp load. Those are far cheaper and actually work very well. They are also a lot less painful, moneywise, when they do fail.
