Before I got ahead of myself and went looking for a cut off wheel for the 4”angle grinder I tried the the 64 lb, via the bathroom scale, motor on the bracket and was pleasantly surprised. The motor went down the first 3 notches using just the handle. I did have to push pretty hard on the motor for that bottom notch. I think I can live with that. If it proves to be a pain cutting is still an option. With the extra long shaft, that actually measures 27” to the anti-cavitation plate, I may run it more in notch 3 in flatter water anyway. I really like the way it lifts back up with no effort, what a difference! Mac, I' m glad I went with the 11 and not the14 inch lift, enough clearance above the water and a better choice all around.
