I don't think my PP VPM 30 has a speed control.

According to the features published it can automatically and also has a speed control.

“Intellectual Mixing Technology: Real-time monitoring of clay consistency can be accomplished while mixing. Similar to an automatic transmission, the Pugger-Mixer can automatically speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the clay being processed. The operator can also control the speed by controlling the variable speed knob.”

Pretty sure mine doesn't.   Just start, stop, pug and vacuum on the control.   I can see where it would be useful.  Maybe the doc you're looking at is a new upgrade model.

Current Peter plugger website for the vpm 30. Maybe a current feature and yours at least auto senses?

Off the website:

Variable Speed Control: Optional

Mine never sounds like it down shifts.  Same old granny gear all the time.

Probably a function of ECM motor use in the last five years or so. Easy feature, soft start, greater efficiency motor. It appears to be a base feature from what I read, maybe not. If they moved to ECM motors it’s an easy feature to add and the auto speed makes sense.
