I have a champion juicer and they really are "Bullet Proof" as you called it. But to be honest...as a juicer, i'm not impressed. When I juice I have to take my pulp and run it through a second time. I think the champion is great because you can make nut butters with it. Although when I did make some almond butter it did get hot. The motor is strong, but like I said, I would rather a juicer that did a better job the first time. I think for the money...around $200.00, you might be able to get a better one.
FWIW: I do use mine and I don't plan on getting a new one...at least not until I get my dehydrator. ;)
