Anyone one know about how many watts a Vibratory Case Tumbler uses?

Mine is a cabela's re-branded version of the Berry's. I can't seem to find a label on it that says how many watts it uses.

Just wondering if I should be more careful with how long I leave it running.
Thanks.

You wouldn't notice a difference in the average homes electric bill if you left it on for 24 hours a month.

Turn off the computer, TV, & cell phone charger if you want to save some real bucks on electricity!

Mine runs overnight many times a month, never can see the difference in the bill. Now AC in the summer is entirely different.

I have the cabelas tumbler.

Mine runs constantly.

Don't notice a real difference.

I'd guess less than 40 watts. The things are nothing more than a small motor with a weight hung off one side off the shaft to make it wobble.

I run two big Dillons that dwarf the Berrys. I can't see a notable difference in my electric bill and I do about 10,000 rounds/month.

I doubt that the Berry's would eat up a dollar bill of juice.

It's less than a 100W light bulb. I have a Franklin Arsenal Vibratory Tumbler, and it's rated at 110VAC @ .83A. That's 91W actual watts, and that is the maximum rating.

That's not a hell of a lot, unless you plan on running it every day for hours on end.
