I just ran my harper woods B series today.
Chopper and rotation still work great.

Re: HELP! I need 1003 dimensions/pictures !( Also a patent..

I'm surprised there's not a Chinese knockoff made yet.

Re: New Siren(s) In Sterling Heights MI

The city got some more funding to replace 2 siren heads. Ryan rd and the one in Dodge Park on Utica rd.
Eventually all the 3016 heads will be replaced when the city gets the funds according to WSS.
