DURST-PRO-USA offer this chassis both as new and remanufactured versions. Common for both are that they are black - anti-reflex black. The coating is chemically resistant anti-reflex black. 

The chassis is a double column type with negative and baseboard stages that slide on the heavy duty chromed steel tubes, in the same manner as pneumatic industrial equipment, tractors and front loaders etc. The stages are moved either by hand crank or via speed controlled motor. 

The chassis it self can be separated at the middle. An assembly  bracket with two hand knobs and security screws allow separation of the upper and lower chassis part, or to turn the upper chassis 180 degrees for projection on the floor.

The camera carriage is spring balanced which, when properly adjusted for the light head in use, makes size adjustment extremely easy. The head is "weight less" and can be moved freely up and down with a hand crank or motor.  

The chassis is prepared for horizontal projection. It is equipped with special wheels for precise operation on steel tracks. 

The camera (bellows unit) turns step less from 0 ® 90 degrees for projection on the wall or for correction of non-parallel lines in  connection with tilting the base board.  

Focusing is done manually either with a knob or motor driven. Focusing supports lenses from 35mm through 600mm. Focusing is geared for extreme precision and durability.

Print 32x50" on the 40x60" oversized baseboard without any accessories. Tilt the baseboard and the lens stage for correction of non- parallel lines or for special effects. 

No other 10x10" enlarger on the market offers the facilities, possibilities and sturdiness that the Durst L184 does. And per spent dollar – the dollar value is extremely high – no other brand come even close.

The L1840 chassis succeeded the L1800. It is a more modern construction. It is taller than the L1800. The chassis is built according to a new principle with one central 8" round column. It offers the same degree of sturdiness as the L1800 without the extreme heaviness. 

The lens stage is a separate two post system originating in the camera it self. The camera featured on the L1840 is identical to the camera featured on the L184 model with the addition of permanently installed motorized focus. 

The head stage (size) and focus are motorized. The baseboard are adjusted via a hand crank.

Motorized size (head) and focus, via floor standing console or remote control. Roll the head to the top, the baseboard to it's extreme lower position and JUST focus in seconds with the remote. 

Print 32x50" on the 40x60" oversized baseboard without any accessories. Tilt the baseboard and the lens stage for correction of non- parallel lines or for special effects. 

Remove the entire baseboard and baseboard arm in minutes for floor projection or roll easel operation. 

Tilt the camera (bellows unit) 90 degrees for horizontal projection, the entire chassis run on tracks, use the remote focus and head motor for fast an accurate operation also in "Horizontal mode". 

The floor standing motor control console is equipped with a built-in digital timer.
