    Default Next Generation Evaporators-Anybody With Experience With One?

    Asking the question for a young neighbor looking to get into a slightly larger and newer boiling process than what he currently has. Saw an ad on Facebook for a 2 x 4 flat pan evaporator with warming pan for a fairly decent price,but I cannot give him an honest answer about quality,durability,and boiling claims. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I have had a NGMP 2x6 for three years. Started with one flat divided pan ( to save money), but changed to drop flue set the last 2 years. I am very happy with it, and get 25-35 gph. Owner was very accommodating and the evaporator is holding up well

    Thanks Keith,I see in your profile it lists cdl 2 x6 drop flue. Did the Next Generation flat pan get their advertised boil rate?

    I don't have one of his evaporators, but I have a 150 gal sap tank from him, very well made, good clean welds and yes, he is good to work with. Great guy!
    Dave Klish about 1320 taps in '15, down to about 700 in '16, up to 1000 for 2019?

    Question for you... Do you have data to support your clams? Just making sure you are not a spammer is all.

    Speaking of spammers... Glad to see you have only one post that doesn't contain smoky lake in the context. I know, I know I need to contribute to the good of this forum. Sorry folks....

I'd tell you to go to my thread an look at all of the other post from owners that responded to it over the last 3 years but it was taken down by the administrator. Because it mentioned smokey lake .apparently a thread that helped me and who knows how many others can't be on this forum though.
    I think everyone involved needs to just get over it and move on . high school was years ago.
    Taken down because it mentioned smokey lake or because the " other owners " were actually Jim from smokey lake pretending to be an owner of a smokey lake product posting bogus info on the thread? Like you said high school was years ago and its hard to tell who you are REALLY talking to on these forums. Amazing what some people will do these days to make a buck! This will be the last I will post on this thread. I apologize to the OP that Jim tried to hijack your thread desperately trying to sell your friend a piece of equipment. Next Gen makes a really nice evaporator, he'll love it!

    Another thread ruined because people can’t stay on the Question asked by the Original Poster. He specifically asked about one company’s product and a few members who can’t let go brand bashing have turned this thread into their own personal platform. Stick to answering the OP’s question or don’t answer. If you want to promote your own agenda, start your own thread.
