I like Furnas too
Of all the contactors I have replaced, I always thought in the 40A and below range that Furnas had the the best product. It was the most interchangeable and always fit. It was priced right and never had problems at the jobsite (those unpredictable things). I have no problems getting them even now at a small distributor in town, but our largest distributor in town no longer has them in stock and has informed me they are no longer in production. I have now been using C&H and think they suck. I am looking for alternative manufactures for a better contactor that is in line with the Furnas. Any suggestions would be great.

As far as Furnas being the best. I'm not so sure (IMO). Don't get me wrong, I use them everyday. They are a good product mixed with affordability.
For a contactor to last a very long time the contacts need to have a higher silver content thus driving up the price. The NEMA rated square d is a good example."Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better"

I didnt get an email from you...unless its buried deep in the spam box!We the unwilling, working for the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

I'm seeing a lot of other brands using the cheaper contactors, they seem to have the same construction and are probably mace in the same Chinese factory
different names on the same contactors
