In the case of Formax, you would call them and they would give you the name of the Authorized Dealer and I'm assuming it would be the same case with Muratec since there are no dealer locators on their web sites.

I like the end of lease feature, it's better than taking out the old hd and smashing it to pieces. However, I'll bet some clever person could find out a way to defeat the end of lease feature. Returning the HD to customer is the safest and best way to eliminate risk.

That is a very nimble doc feeder that can do that on a high volume system. Question, can it scan both front and back with both images on one page? I know the card function feature which outputs both sides this way is impressive.

It would seem that from looking at the size of the feeder it could do two sided scanning in a single pass. Can anyone verify this?
