ST8 or Jensen 540 or Greenmech??

Time to change my A540.

The decision will be made on which machine appears to have the best warranty and and customer support.
I think.

The ST8 has 3yr warranty but I'm concerned about service after that.

Jensen dealers are a bit closer to me.

I feel the Forst is a better design. But I know Jensens.

!!!!!!!!!

We don't need one, it's a Bandit. We have been looking after the UK, Ireland & parts of Europe now for years all from One depot, come to the dark side.

I would rather deal with the organ grinder than the chimp! Not having dealers suits me better,just call the factory,get a straight answer and parts next day.

So what machine did you choose then Ian?
Thanks
Al.

Edit: I'm guessing a Greenmech then. What about the spare parts? Don't they have to be bought through Orangeplant at a hefty price?
