    i think that is what both my sportsmans r i'll have to look. if it is they no longer make that model but 1502 parts r interchangeable. i'll ask dh tomarrow and mine had papers with it when i bought the one. i think it was an instuction manual. if u need a copy let me know. i'll have dh give ya more details tomarrow for it. i love my bators never hatch in anything else again they r very reliable.

    as an added thought the only thing i hate most about it is no window on the doors. this summer i want to modify them with plexiglass.

    one thing i hate with the older one is the water for humidity is in a plastic pan on top shelf ya never have enough water so i have a few pans in there. on my other one though it has a bucket sets on top with hose that runs down in to a water pan with a valve. when the ball kinda floats as the water is less it refills it's self. it works kinda how a toilet refills if that makes sence. definately love that about the newer one!! it hold mabe 1-2 gal in a reserve bucket on top rarely have to fill it. the one that doesn't i have to add water everyday.
