If anyone has any advice (or other recommendations) I'd be grateful. I'm looking at getting a new combination machine and a bit worried considering the outlay for the machine. I've been looking at an iTech C300 or C3 31 Comfort. Ideally I'll get to their showrooms to have a look, but that is not a possibility right now given my location and other commitments.

Does anyone have any experience with either of these machines or have any other suggestions what to look at?

Thanks in advance,

Richard

I can only comment on the C3 31 as last year I was employed to do a lot of work on a large property & this machine was supplied for the conversion & preparation of sawn hardwood into differing components. It was also used for breaking down sheet materials.

I found the machine capable of everything it was asked to do, It was straight forward to use, easy to set up & very accurate.

I was so impressed with the build quality & preformance that I`ve ordered the Hammer saw/spindle combination machine for my own workshop.

I would also add when buying new machines from Hammer they are made to order so are not available immediately, there is usually a 8-10 week lead time.

Cheers.

Hi Doug,

Thank you for the info. It certainly has been a lot easier finding out info about the Hammer than the iTech. It is looking to be a pretty solid bit of kit.

Cheers,

Richard

Hi Richard.

I should have added that if you are interested in a Hammer machine, get in touch with them & they will try & arrange a viewing for you with an owner of the type of machine you`re interested in within your locality.

Another make you might be interested in is SCM, I`m currently using one on site at a church conversion, it`s a Mini Max, though I don`t know the model number.

It is an older machine, very robust though a little undersized but I`m sure there would be larger more modern  models.

Cheers.

 

Doug.
