RK is getting ready to change to a new motor manufacturer. This motor change represents a switch to the same specifications of our 12LB Drum motor on all of our drum kits, turning at 26RPM. There should be no difference in quality over this original motor and what we have used since 2007, and results in excellent roasting results.
Since this is a new motor manufacturer that we have only used in limited production, we'd love for you to test it out and let us know how it goes.
It still comes with a 1 year warranty, and should give you great service. We're wanting to offer a discount for you to give it a shot. The way we see it, it's all upsides and no downsides.
When you select a kit with a motor, simply add the "Beta" motor from the kit\motor options and we'll get it on the way.
