    Hi everyone,

    It's been a while since I've posted, but my MP10 of 8 years finally bit the dust. Such an amazing and reliable piece of equipment, but it needs to be replaced...

    Long story short, I can pick up a slightly used MP40WQD for a steal and wondering if it will be too strong for the 130D even set at the lowest power setting?

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    It would work, but it would be overkill. You'd only want to run it at about 1/3 it's rated speed. However if you get a super good price on it, at least try it first.

    Has anyone here had any experience with an MP40 in their RSM130d?
