    For no more than you do, you could get the Dakota 4 and do just fine. Most will suggest a bigger one. If you did more, I'd say get the Dakota Pro. I used a Dalota 4 for years on everything from Diker to an American buffalo. The buff took forever! But I did get it done!

    I used the Dakota 4 when I first started and once I got a big machine I wished that I had started with that. I would not recommend a 4. I would save and spend the money on a good machine. A s & s or a Dakota pro.
