Ugh!!!
I HATE that Scatron harvester!  They make a cheap 12 well version that
is acceptable, in a pinch.
A "good" one that I like is the Tomtec 96 well harvester.
You need a good in-house vacuum line or a vacuum pump that you can buy
from them, and you ALSO need an in-house air line or a compressor for
the wash fluid reservoirs.  The only thing that I do NOT like about
the Tomtec is the fact that even after tweaking the wash times, the
unit generates more waste than other havesters on the market.
