    Got my 251 from Craigslist. No worries with CARB there! Or if you have a friend in a neighboring state...

    I just ordered one on Sunday... They sent me tracking on Monday saying it would be here today.... Saw the UPS man delivering up the street, ran out there to get my new toy, and he drove right by me.
    Apparently, Home Depot didn't fill up the truck on Monday, and it left Tuesday.

    Buy from a smaller company, they'll ship it to you. Occasionally they pop up on e-bay. Send it to a relative or a friend, and have them ship it to you. Everybody needs to go to Vegas or Reno
    once in a while, have it shipped to a Home Depot there, and take a long weekend and pick it up.

    You'll get one. Somehow, someway, you will.

    My Toy just got here, there is a tag in there babbling something about California... Seems like if you use it for more than 300 hours, then you can have it... But I don't know..




    I just fired it up, inside the shop (2 garage doors open) Its pretty darn quiet.

    Thanks everyone, went out yesterday and where I'm digging I could sure use a gold vacuum, especially with this drought. Looks like there are ways around California's rules. Any suggestions how to get around the dredging ban. LOL Thanks again!

    I am gonna build one. What size router bit was used for the inside edge of the upper bulkhead? Where can I get a viper sticker? Joseph

    This listing is why I finally just bought a new one... I apparently don't need any more crap to fix.

    I've looked closely at the 251 when i built mine with the 255...... the 251 doesn't have the shroud capabilities like the 255 to attached it to the lid of the bucket

    Hey Joe, I'm not sure how to tell you this, but.... your memory is about as good as mine.

    Joe: post 29 in this thread.
    Question:In your first post you said the PB251 was last years model...... will that one work as well with the flat base and mounting screws?________ Just in case i find a used one.
    thnx,
    Azviper. post 30
    The 251 and 255 are of the same design, just a change in model numbers from year to year...
    You looked at the 250, the one that is a lot cheaper, and in stock at home depot.

    I only know this because I've looked at this thread, or at least bits of it about 10 times in the past 2 weeks. 250, 251, 255 Which one do I need again??

    Funny.... The 255 which i used is perfect and easily bolts to the lid with a piece of reinforcement in between following the original instructions on page one. I used a poly cutting board from wal mart in between.
    Definitely one heck of a good crack vac and i also used the 6 gallon bucket with screw on lid

    So I picked up/ordered all the components. My dad has offered to help with the routering. I will not have my echo until next week and I am driving 4 hours to see him this weekend. Any chance someone who has built the viper can provide me with the diameter of the bulkheads and ID of hole for the blower? That way can cut all pieces and assemble when I get my echo. Much thanks in advance!!
