    This is my first post on apug 
    Although i have read all the related forums but they are over 3 years old. Just been lucky to grab a CPP-2 n expert drum 3010. I have read all the related documents on web including jobo site and others on this forum talking about motor upgrade etc.
    I am in search of someone who has got the same spec as me and have used it sucessfully . I mean cpp-2 first version serial10xxx without any upgrade, working with drum 3010 with 1000 ml chemical mix.

    Although i wasnt able to run it as my lift was already cracked and i didnt wanted to break it further. But it runs drum 2563 very well from the lower slot. I am also in need of new lift incase some one can offer in uk or anywhere.
    Thanks for reading my essay
    Any personel experience with the above problem? Please write to help

    I seem to recall they're not compatible. I also recall that I've read an article suggesting a windshield wiper motor could replace the original. BMW,Mercedes,?
    If the CPP still works don't kill it with the 3010 drum. There was also information on burning up the circuit board.

    I know it may sound banal, but I think eBay is the best place to find such thing (no Craigslist here). In looking for some Jobo material on the eBay I recently (a few days ago) saw several Jobo lifts, and several Jobo film processors, among them a couple of CPP-2. The German site seems to be better provided with Jobo offers.

    The handle is broken on my lift so I just raise and lower the 3010 drum by hand.

    Same i would, but even if its not broken we still need hands to lift. I dont believe jobo is made in german. Tanks are built like tanks though but the lift could be made alot better

    Since i have neither the drum nor the machine as yet, I'd love to get some experienced input here. For 8x10 processing, which Jobo rotator and which drums are best? I already discovered that the CPE-2 can't take the 3010 expert drum. From what's said above, it seems that the CPP-2 may not be quite strong enough?

    Thanks,

    Asher

    for 8x10, Its 3005 with cpa2 or cpp2. With serial 22000 above for cpp2. I am going to try my 3010 this week with my cpp2 (earlier motor) but will use half the chemical instead of 1 lt, with 5 sheets instead of 10, so the motor dont get panic. Incase the motor fails then the whole thing got to be upgraded from germany for €250.

    Wow,

    Now that's an amazing deal! They are so much more expensive on Ebay!

    You were fortunate. what's the serial number? Which motor does it have?
