    Default CDL vs Leader Sap lifter

    I'm going to purchase a sap lifter for next season. For a 600 tap CDL wants $1525 Leader wants $1035. Does anyone know if there is anything that makes the CDL unit far superior that would justify the price difference?

    2000-3000 Taps depends on the season.

    We have 220 taps on a single canister CDL lifter and 430 on a CDL lifter with 3 canisters. The single works well but the other not so much (it's the biggest single maintenance item we have in our tubing system). Not sure how either compares with Leader but buyer beware!

    I'm partial, but CDL carries and backs their warranty. Leader doesn't, and I used to sell for them. also with the new H2o transaction who knows if parts will be available.
