I have a Woodmizer version of a Nyle L200.  Works great!

I have a WM4000, which is a Nyle 200 with a Honeywell controller.  Easy to use and does a great job.
Don't have any experience with solar kilns.

North Central Technical College in Antigo, which is just a few miles away, has a beginners' class every year in August.  You can learn everything you need to know in order to run a DH kiln efficiently and effectively. 

In WI, the solar kiln is going to run well from April through September, but you might want dry lumber year round.

There is a serious learning curve to any kiln drying process, not just the WM unit.  Ditto's Gene's recommendation about attending class.

Kiln operator associations often overlap geographically and many hold training to some degree or other. Gene offers the best classes IMO. I used to keep track and post notification of meetings at the top of the page. I'll try to put a little time into that again.

Steve, I would suggest that you attend a class before drying any significant quantities of lumber with a kiln.  There are many ways to damage lumber during the drying process, and a class will help you understand the basics.

Although most of the classes will have similar titles, and the basics principles of drying are there, classes are not all the same !!!!  I learned the hard way.

Make sure you verify that the class you are considering will be appropriate for the type of kiln you will be using/building/buying.  Driving over 1000 miles, and spending considerable money, to find that the instructor has a 'disdain' for your type of kiln is very frustrating.
