Peter Pugger Manufacturing has announced its newest vacuum pugger-mixer -- the VPM-20 power wedger. This new pugger-mixer is a table top model with an optional adjustable stand. The unit weighs only 200 lbs, including the vacuum pump, and has a batch capacity of 20-30 lbs. The machine mixes, stores and recycles scrap, and vacuum deairs and pugs clay with the same efficiency and versatility as the company's VPM-30 model. The company also manufactures standard pugger-mixers with 75- and 150-lb batch capacities. All models have a safety switch preventing operation when the hopper door is opened.
