For over 20 years Pacifica wheels have been designed, redesigned, and
continually improved upon based on comments received from potters,
teachers and technicians who appreciate the same features in their
Pacifica that you will in yours.
Pacifica Wheels Have Torque and Power: Four separate polyurethane belts, operating
at a 12:1 reduction, transmit enough torque to throw up to 80 lbs. on
the GT 400 and over 100 lbs. of clay on the GT 800. The GT 400 develops
over 1/2 HP, and delivers high torque even at slow speeds more
efficiently and more quietly than a gear drive. The GT 800 develops
over 1 HP. Pacifica's custom designed load sensor increases the drive
current in exact proportion to the load of the clay, thereby providing
constant speed from 0 to 260 plus rpms. You can even set a separate
maximum speed adjustment between 200 and 300 rpms. Pacifica delivers
more power for the price than any wheel made.
The Magic Pedal: Many Pacifica Wheel owners claim they would buy a
Pacifica GT Wheel just for the Magic Pedal! It is exceedingly smooth at slow
speeds while still giving you all the power you will need great for
delicate trimming. Minor wheel speed changes are easily achieved by
applying proportionate pressure to the fluid Magic Pedal. The low
profile pedal is comfortable and solid. It will "stay put" while not
elevating your foot uncomfortably.
Pacifica Optional Seat and Leg Extensions: The seat is a solid,
comfortable and adjustable padded seat that will allow you to throw for
hours on end. The seat easily mounts onto the leg of your Pacifica
wheel, and large knobs make for easy adjustments. The optional and
adjustable leg extension sets increase the versatility of your Pacifica
Wheel. They add up to 10 inches with the model A or up to 23 inches
with the model B.
