    I would love to know where those stores are that the engineer got those things at!! I paid almost $100 for my bator and turner, and opted for a pc fan, since the LG ones I have seen were about $35!!

    He may have purchased some time ago. Not sure when he did this test comparison. My bator turner and fan totaled about 140.00
     
  4. Good timing with the posting of that article, thanks! I just bought a Hovabator still-air and it's great to know I can stabilize its performance by letting it run for a few days before putting eggs in.
     
  5. Looks like at least 8 years ago... The update he posted was 4/00 which I presume to be April of 2000.

    The cost would then be wrong but the info is still informative I hope
     

  7. It would be interesting to know how the current models compare. [​IMG]

    Huh, I thought that was very interesting. Made me glad to have my LG's, lol. Now I need a fan.

    As far as I can tell he is talking about the same models as are sold now.
    The LF I bught a week ago is a 9200. And that is what he was using.
