I started with one of those.
They kick butt. But I have two blown discs in my neck and it hurt my shoulder to yank the thing.
My brother has been using his for yrs and I gave him my old one for a back up.
I went to a powermatic 11 and went thru a couple of those. They are ok per say.
I got a Fresh Choice thinking by the reviews it is a pos but It kicks butt.
It is finicky if the Baccy is not at the right rh. Tho.
My kid loves making me smokes now.
