Troubles at Land&Sea
« on: March 03, 2020, 05:06:08 pm »
Tough time there, owner died. They're trying to pick up the pieces but there will be delays in production, tech support and return of components sent in for calibration. Sure hope this works out. Makes me glad to do mostly lower hp output stuff for fun, mine has been very reliable.

    That blows.  Mine is old enough that about all I can get from them is the bearings but there are a lot of those dynos around.   :-\

    It would seem that as long as the arm and load sensor etc. is good, that the water brake wouldn't be too tough to get repaired. Tech support would be better than nothing...

    Seems like a decent sized operation with a lot of products.
    Hard to believe they wouldn't have some sort of succession plan in place.

    Haven't really needed their support for anything on mine.  But I can see the day when the old Windows 7 computer I run the software on gives up the ghost. 

    Doubt I will want to invest in new software.  If the current version I have is not compatible with whatever Windows flavor of the day, I might be looking for someone with the knowledge to move the SSD to a new motherboard.

    I have found most Older Windows Software runs fine under Windows 10. Do you have any Dyno examples of a Kwasaki 292 Single, Skidoo 250, 292, 340 Singles?
