This blender is supposed to be of 'professional' caliber, but if you subjected this to the kind of work load a blender receives at e.g. Jugo Juice, etc, it would break down after a few hours, in my opinion. We've had ours for a few years, and it's infrequently received light to moderate use. However, when asked to deal with moderately thick or viscous mixtures, the engine slows and sometimes cuts out, requiring a reset. On top of this, the blade axle assembly now leaks.

This is supposed to be a high-end blender, but the performance just isn't there.
