I say buy a HAAS! We just bought a VF-5/50 with a HRT-310 rotary, through spindle coolant, auto air gun, part/tool probing, visual quick code etc. etc. etc. The price we paid was around $135,000.00. I feel that we made the best deal due to service and applications support from our local HFO and the factory.
The machine is a beast. I am not sure if you are looking for a 40 taper or a 50. I say go 50 if you can afford it.
The control is a dream to use. I could go on and on , but if you have more questions about the Haas feel free to ask.
