Floor model vs. table model

Submitted by Leroy on 11/30/04 at 6:03 PM. ( ) 209.62.215.60

I am looking at buying a new fleshing machine. My question is, do you think I should pay the extra money and buy a floor model or buy a table model? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Buy one of each model. Will cost you more but if you do a lot of hides, it is worth it. Table model: Heavy hides can rest on the table while you shave them = less effort on your part to hold, push, carry etc.

Floor model meaning stand up and move around skin while holding or can move machine easily to a desired location, table, bench to help rest the skin on etc. Use your imagination


Floor Model

If you have limited floor space, you will appreciate moving the flesher out of the way when needed.

I built a collapsible table against a wall so I had just the right height.
