Hand held fleshers do they work?

I am just starting and looking to help the fleshing time. Do those little hand held fleshers do a good job? Is there a model to avoid or a better one to look at?

Jack , I started out with an air powered mini flesher until my customer volume pretty much forced me to a round knife . I bought a Dakota IV from Van Dykes last year and have had no trouble with it. It is super quiet, produces nice thin hides that stretch well and accept a tan very quickly. I save a great deal of time with it. With the costs of a miniflesher and an air compressor big enough to run it you can buy and ship a D IV and have a few bucks left over . It comes with a video on how to operate it so its not like you go into a first hide blind.For a little more money you can go to the larger D V .
