Recommendations for a plucking machine?

Looking for a good duck plucker, what would you recommend? I've got my eye on the gas powered Godevil but would like to hear what you use and like....or don't like.

I've used the type that goes on the end of a drill and it sucked. It did a poor job and tore the skin.

Definitely the WhizBang chicken plucker. I made one out of a thirty gal plastic barrel, scrap steel, and used garbage disposal motor
for nothing but my time and the cost of rubber fingers ($27). Works awesome, 5 ducks at a time. And since you you're going to the effort, try "beer can chicken" recipe on mallards. Awesome. Use a meat thermometer and don't over cook - they cook REALLY fast.
155' in the breast is done. Red Bull cans will fit a teal.
