We love this machine. All our banding has been getting done on a Brandt. Thats all they make is banders and that says something to me. It has all the right stuff, in a nutshell.Gus, the Brandt banders are pretty decent entry level banders. Are you dealing with Stiles for the purchase?
How heavy are you into 3mm banding? The reason I ask is that although sold as such these machines lack hogging motors which really stresses out the profile trimmers.If you are primarily only doing 1mm or HPL you don't need to worry about it.
After santa is done at your shop you can send him my way.....as long as he is in the gift giving mood.
