Given the huge success of the Probe machine, the unit’s body turned out to be so effective that I had to build a powered-up version! The Probe Beast delivers in spades, with lots of power and speed, great setup flexibility, all in a compact and lightweight machine.
The Glide is unique in the OA line as our only machine with electrical stroke adjustment! Built in the same durable and functional manner of the Marauder line, the Glide lets you change stroke length on the fly… continuously variable from 1.5″ to 7″ to meet a wide range of needs. The carefully designed adjusting mechanism is built to last and delivers seamless length changes. After extensive development, the Glide system provides an ideal mix of additional stroke as the total stroke length increases, favoring additional insertion distance but not exclusively. In addition to the standard on/off switch and continuous speed adjustment, the attractive hand control sports a bi-directional momentary switch that operates the stroke adjustment.
The Glide features a solidly-built plywood case covered in gray speaker carpet, a comfortable handle which folds flat to the front of the machine, and a pair of attachment points to secure the unit to something. Moderate weight and excellent durability make this machine easy to transport. The Glide is very quiet, as the enclosure does a fine job of muting the small amount of noise produced by the mechanics. The adjustable stroke design features a three-stage drive, which has the added benefit of counterbalancing much of the moving mass… as a result, the Glide is very stable in use.
Available with an American motor, the Glide uses a 1/12 HP Bodine motor, and is available for 110 VAC power grid.
