The ORIGINAL

Machine Comparison Chart

(This chart was created and compiled originally in 2007 and posted in our Paperthreads Newsletter. We have spent many hours on this chart to provide as true and accurate information as possible. We contacted MANY of the vendors directly to gather information for the purpose of this chart. All of the MATERIAL HANDLING information was compiled for us from various owners of the machines, and the information was gathered from them with their permission to be used in this chart, as well as gathering information through our own testing and experimentation with materials. Through all of this input, we are able to provide you with the best information possible. Please feel free to share this link with anyone interested in researching the various machines. But please do not repost this chart in anyway. Anyone that does so has done it without our permission, and we do consider it a copyright infringement.)
