The good thing is that there is a good market for used ones too- they last a looooong time. And there are parts available- they’re repairable.I heard this awhile back. I went ahead and got an mp10 a week ago just incase. My first ecotech product... seems nice but im not sure i would spend anymore than i did on one. Seems overpriced as it is...
Big companies make mistakes all the time. Technology is getting cheaper while competition is getting stronger. Raising prices in response to more competition is a curious move.Do you know their financial details? I’m sure they did the math . It’s not a kid in a garage... it’s a big company.
Ya i was origonally going to pick up a used one, but for the price they sell for used i said screw it and got a brand new one. Atleast i know i can get most of my money back if i decide i want to sell it...The good thing is that there is a good market for used ones too- they last a looooong time.

I don’t, never claimed I did, and they don’t know the effect of a 10% across the board price hike on sales. Should be interesting to see how it plays out.Sure, true. I just thought it was interesting that you think you know their business finances better than they do
I'm guessing you work with steel or aluminum? The domestic mills increased their price once the imported price raised. Interesting to hear about the prior art there.As an owner of an American manufacturing company, the price of raw materials have gone up by at least 20%. This is for materials from domestic (USA) mills. The only reason for this is greed. Nothing to do with the 25%tariffs.
WRT ecotech’s patents, there is a substantial amount of prior art that dates back to the 60’s for use in nuclear and chemical tank applications. Also there patent expires around 2026!
