Thought I’d follow up and let you all know that I did purchase the Hitachi EC510 for $79.95 plus s/h from Big Sky Tools. It arrived in good shape, looks new, runs well, builds pressure faster than my HF, and is quite loud as Lumberdustjohn pointed out. I’ve haven’t used it enough to know how well it sprays yet, but I don’t spray much and I’m sure it’ll do better than the little HF (which I sold for $25, so my out of pocket costs were pretty reasonable, so my wife is happy!). After I’ve had it for a while I’ll post a more detailed review.

Since there have been a number of customer service posts lately, I thought I’d also share that I received an email from Big Sky stating that this unit was on sale for $69.12 this week. I fired off a note asking Big Sky if they’d refund the difference. This morning I got an email saying the difference would be refunded back to my PayPal account. In checking their policies, they normally do not refund for price changes like this, but I’m grateful for their effort in this case. They’ve kept a customer happy, and I’ve responded by telling you fine folks!
