My 1066z double drum is 10x nicer/beefier/ridgid than my performax 22/44 pro was. I'd trade the 1066z for even a cheap 37" widebelt no contest.

Brake to blade spacing is a measured distance, not just that it spins freely. Could be too far away. Did you read the manual.like I suggested?

Check spacing between blade and break. Prob needs adjusted. Easy to do. Get your manual or down load it.

Kbac makes a dc speed controller and people use them with dc motors from often times free or cheap treadmill motors. I prefer ac 3ph motors and vfd. Kbac also sells a couple really nice vfds.
