    I actually thought it would be a good ideal to vacuum pack some fresh tobacco. Put a pound in and turned it into one big tobacco cake!

      Already tried it with some dried herbs. Went to about a quater of its size.

      Apparently in Oregon they grow tons of hops and I understand the growers use these machines to package them.

        OK, I want one to! I looked online at Halfords and they have 1 advertised for $1259.00 CDN. That would include free shipping. Or should I try the States route? How much would I save? What have you guys spent? Thanks in advance.

          Disregard previous post. I decided to scroll back through earlier posts on this thread and found a few prices posted. This gives me an idea on how much I need to spend. Quite honestly I am not really a fan of going the States route.

              Thanks for that F.A. Not sure when I will pull the trigger and do it, but I too am sick and tired of those foodsavers. I am hoping to do it sooner than later.

                Length and more sealing bars so I could package more then one package at a time. Maybe a larger pump to make the process faster.

                  I did import 5 single chamber vacuum sealers on a one time deal and have 3 left They will take a 16 x 23.5 bag or 2- 7.5 x 22 bags 1 HP motor They are about the same size as a dishwasher and are stainless steel They come with 350 bags 5 mil and some spare parts I just got them last Friday and they are ready to go $1571 all in FOB Sooke Retail is about double
                  You could pm me with your email address and I could send you more info ( I don't know if I could attach something to a PM)
                  Doing 2 bags at once sure saves time and you can put the date into the sealing strip

                    That's a good deal. What brand are they?

                      Most machines from china are rebranded by American Companies, a power cord, reboxed and well written insructions and a new name and with overhead and profit added These machines are made by one of the largest companies Huilian Machinery and seam very English for a chinese company (I contacted quite a few companies before deciding on this one ,some were so brutal )
                      Unfortunatly these machines take up a lot of real estate and wiegh in at 250 LBs and no french instruction manual

                        SO i thought id write a report On Daves units he sold ....(gone fishin) as I got it in AUG and wanted to really use it before I comment.
                        I think he brought in 15 of these units and sold all of them including the one I purchased . he set it all up for me explained everything a good upfront honest guy.(hes also bringing in spare parts to have on hand if needed) VERY helpful

                        NOW for the machine.... you can use ANY bag I found out as I was given 10.000 ziplock 5 mil bags that are pleated on the bottom 2 different sizes and they work GREAT ive done so much already Salmon, smoked salmon,Kale,Beans .Peas, even marinated STEAKS, sausages the list goes on id say close to 500 bags worth and this machine hasn't missed a beat.

                        I personally think what Dave has done and the research he has put into designing and making these units is commendable he really thought things out, but for the price cant go wrong.

                        Notice on the last pic the crossed lines which is the seal its about 3/8 wide if not more. thing is awesome!!!!!

                        So to show you what it looks like and how it performed as i didnt have any salmon or sausages LOL so put my makita drill in a bag to show you what it can do . had to laugh if you look at the one pic sucked it in so good it started the drill as it depressed the trigger (notice light on) LOL
                        so yes id say it does way better that I ever expected. and first pic is of some WHITE spring that was done and froze almost a month ago. its all ready for me to smoke as you can tell.......

                        I think he may be thinking of bringing some more units in im sure he will comment on it after this,


                        Notice on last picture of the crossed lines which is the seal its almost a 1/2 inch wide a great seal for a bag thing is a beast and is awesome!!!!! and yes those are the bags i was given im set for life LOL just write whatever is in them I dont care a bag is a bag LOL

                            Wolf Thanks for the review I too have run about 500 bags with out an issue and think they are a kick ass machine. I am thinking about ordering 5 more if there is serious interest.I have quite a few user parts as well as some sevice parts as well Lid seals, computers, Teflon strips Filters and much more
                            I can demo the unit if you are in the area
                            here is a little info
                            DZ -400DC Single Chamber Vacuum Packaging Machine
                            The DZ 400 is a chamber vacuum sealer, which offers two distinct advantages over non-chamber, external bag type units. First, a much higher level of vacuum can be achieved which means a longer shelf life for foods that you package. Secondly, liquids and liquid-rich foods can be effectively vacuum packaged. Food products like fresh meats, fish, soups, stews, etc. are no longer a problem to vacuum package. Marinated vegetables and meats are packaged quickly with ease, and no mess.
                            Simply place the pouch to be sealed inside the chamber and close the lid. This activates the vacuum pump and the vacuum and sealing process begins! First, the air is removed from the entire chamber and the vacuum pouch. Once the preset vacuum level is achieved, the pouch is sealed. Upon completion of the sealing cycle, the air flows back into the chamber and the lid opens automatically. You can imprint the date right into the sealing strip with the provided silicone letters
