"I purchased this product and use it on daily. I love the ease of the unit as a whole, the variable speed is a great feature. It allows you to choose the speed vs pre set speeds. The unit is heavy and doesn't walk, is is very beefy and made out of cast. The motor is easy to get to if any problem should arise. I'm hook one the jets products."
