is a pretty good machine if you are on a budget. Yes, it does come with guards. There are some much better machines out there like the Dakota Pro if you have the money. Buy one used if you can.

I have a IV and I like it. It is small and you can work in smome tight places bigger fleshers can't get. It is a good machine for the money. Mine was used when I bought it and it works great.

Overall I like this machine. However the guard is a bit of a pain to set. "only my opinion" if I had it to do over again I would get the PRO.


I have both

I have both machines.I basically learned on the smaller unit and now do almost all my work with the 12 inch,which includes most of the face work on deer capes.

I have the Dakota IV and have only used it a few times I bought it 2 years ago, I don't do taxidermy anymore and have no need for it. Let me know if you are interested in a used one. I have 2 blades for it. It is in Excellent condition.
