Had a full length piece of 1/4" on it, pressing down hard, and roughed off .120" of material in a few minutes on a 30" long piece. Only bogged it down a couple times of really heavy loading, more than I would normally. Overall well worth the price tag.
Picked one up last week and used it to clean up some plasma cut steel. 22 3/8 thick pieces took some time. Ended up melting the plastic cover at bottom for dust collection due to a build up of sparks. I even had it connected to a shop vac to keep dust down in garage.

Still worth it for me, just have to make a metal guard now.
