My most recent 8300 heads now have 6500 and 8000 square feet on them, still going strong. Used 300+ days a year. I wonder if recent heads have improved in some way? Both my current heads are warranty replacements with "R" prefixes. Does that mean "Refurbished" or "Repaired." Anybody know?
Other than an infrequent 1/2 hour spent on head replacements, the old 8300 has been a steadfast workhorse in a dusty, low humidity location in temperatures swinging between 60F and 80F. I load rolls and print, end of story. Don't even bother with nozzle checks, except for profiling. The 9880 was not like that.
