Default Which Machine????

Well I am thrilled with my powermatic 2+.This machine is awesome and works great.I live in a rural/resort community with a population of about 500 in the off season.With power outages being a constant threat during the winter months.I decided I better equip myself with a manual machine.The two machines I am eyeing right now are the powermatic 1+ and the powermatic 150.
I am leaning twards the 150 right now.If anyone has experience with both hopefully you will chime in or if you think there is a better manual machine I should be considering please let me know.

I personally like the Powermatic mini. It’s built like a tank. It’s cheap. It’s small. And Makes perfect smokes. Less than $20

My mini arrived today and I have had a chance to run about three packs through it.There is a slight learning curve with it though.The mini is alot more finicky to how much tobacco and how hard to pack it compared to my PM2+ which is alot more forgiving.With that being said the unit works great and will most deffinately get me through electrical outages.It is a nice solid little unit at a great price.Picked mine up for $18 bucks.

A little practice is all it takes. 100’smokes from now and you’ll spit one out every 4-5 seconds

Since it’s a slider there are less parts to break or bend....assuming anyone could break it in the first place

Powermatic III is a consistent high quality machine. I make a carton in 30 mins using two machines, and 40 mins with one. Every cig packed at full consistent levels.

Love the PM III. Smokers Outlet Online often out of stock but check daily as they move fast. Ebay rates are running 50% over Smokers Outlet.

The PMIII makes great 100's even though it claims regular size only.

Best, Fred

All I roll are 100's and the Powermatic III works perfectly with 100's. Need to use highest level of packing and they are perfect.

I have 3 Powermatic machines and using all 3 I can make a 10 pack carton in 20 mins. Perfect for me to have an extra machine in case of issues. Has saved me over $1000 in the few months I'm using it. Using 100's tubes and a perfect pipe tobacco I make 100% like Marlbro Light 100's for about .80 a pack when our local stores charge over $10.80 with tax for a single pack.
