Centrifuge package?

So, my slightly used V3 system is on it's way and while I know it's going to take me a while to have the time to get everything installed, I need to start getting my filtering set-up together. I've looked around the site at all kinds of DIY filtering set-ups and am wondering if anyone is using a centrifuge package like something from PA biodiesel supply or another similar package? Anything wrong with these? I'd love to build my own, but I'd rather spend a little more money and start filtering sooner.

Any input and opinions would be great! I'm looking forward to getting started...

I went with pa biodiesel and am happy I did. I got the 108 gph deluxe kit and love it. Joe is great to work with also. The original 1/2 hp motor wouldnt spin when I recieved it so I sent it back and he sent me another, no hassle. The kits really do include everything but the barrel, and you can get that from them if you want. In hindsight, because I blend I dont need as large of a unit as I thought I would. I thought I would need a large capacity c-fuge because I run wmo but the 55gph unit would have worked fine and saved me money but it is nice to spin a barrel for 2 hrs tops and its thoroughly clean.

Cool. Thanks. I was looking at their units and they seem to be pretty complete. I was wondering about which size to get. I feel like 55gph would be fine but I don't want to undersize and have to buy again later.

X3!
And may I add buy an American Made CF.

Like:
Simple Centrifuge ...putting a centrifuge in every garage!
or
WVO Centrifuge | Waste Vegetable Oil Centrifuge Equipment

These are the only MAJOR makers of CF's rotors that are made in the USA. Both are machined from a single piece of billet, and are checked for balance.
You can buy a cheaper one, (cast aluminum) but its parts are made in China, Turkey, and wherever makes it the cheapest. (WVO Designs)

Check this out:

Thus the fix:
Simple Centrifuge ...putting a centrifuge in every garage!

My first centrifuge was a PA Biodiesel centrifuge. It worked well but honestly once I started using it the grass started to look really green on the other side (gravity feed, open bowl). I sold my spinner and pieced together a gravity feed for less than $550. I love it and I am glad I switched.

I also bought a kit from pa bio. And I'm really pleased with it. I bought two moving dollies from harbor freight and mounted the whole system on them so it can be moved where ever I need it. But before I bought it I read a lot and watched more utube videos than I care to count and really didn't see much difference it what was coming out of both styles but it goes in mine almost black at times and comes out a light amber colour. I also don't have to babysit it just heat it let it run and done. I'm not putting the open bowl cf down I'm sure they work fine. I will say this if you don't get the oil hot enough u won't like the results of the spinner maybe that's the problem.
