You can expect to pay around $300 to $400 per month for a system of this quality. At 72 1/2 inches long by 28 inches deep and 24 inches high for the basic model, you need to make sure you have adequate space dedicated to this postage system. Adding on the color solution and power stacker will take it out to 99 inches in length – that’s 8 ft 3 in. Optional Weigh-On-The-Way® dynamic weighing will only slow this puppy down slightly to 205 LPM, and non-WOW processing will get you up to 310 LPM, allowing the flexibility to process mixed size and weight pieces automatically in a single run. See full specifications on the Connect+ 3000 Pro here. If you run a production environment that processes a ton of mail, this Pitney Bowes system is definitely worth a look.
