4/5 Liter Stainless Steel Ultrasonic Cleaner Recomendations?

Hi, anybody have a 4 or 5 liter capacity stainless steel construction ultrasonic cleaner they can recommend?

I have had the 2.5 liter Harborfreight one for a while, but I need a bigger capacity one.

Thanks.

Large US cleaners are very expensive. Your best bet is a used on EBay Or CL.
I have a Branson 3200 a gallon and a half cap. it original retailed for $800.
I got it off EBay for $100. Branson claims to have invented the US cleaner. Ed

Thanks. Will keep an eye on eBay for a used Branson 3200.

I had purchased a harbor fright US cleaner and I used it twice before it burned out. My uncle who was a surgeon gave me a Peltsonic that he bought in the early eighties and used for years. There is a huge difference in the quality of this Peltsonic and the cheap cleaners harbor fright sells. This thirty year old ultrasonic cleaner will last me longer than anything I could buy at HF today. My advise would be to buy a good quality used one.

Hmmmmm, and my old Branson 220 went (I think) kaput, today. This is the second one - this one was my Father's, and I don't think it's had a lot of use. My previous one, also a Branson, lasted some years, but again not in constant use.
