Glad y'all can afford to sit in the lap of luxury, mine's a solid shaft belt-and-chain drive but then I only paid a thousand for it and it works me over good and hard... But if it works me a thousand hours I still save $10 an hour over that $11k machine so it's like getting paid an extra $10 an hour to work hard, once again the more expensive machine doesn't make more money.
Would you TAKE ten thousand dollars if you had to forget that split drive?
I'd see about pricing some used units.
And if you want to get the job done I'd get one that's at least 24" wide.
