Yes! And yes!
Reading these forums is a great tool for identifying and solving problems. So, as a result, we mostly read of issues owners are experiencing. This might lead a prospective buyer to think all the machines are junk, toys, or both, and that an owner will spend more time fixing problems than making parts.
Just curious, is anybody really happy with their machines and are they making quality parts?
Yes! And yes!

Good to hear that. I suspect there are a gazzilon guys just happily making chips instead of posting, which is as it should be. Earlier this year I bought a new truck and, before buying it, I read all the forum posts for GM, Ford, and Dodge. From the posts it seemed you needed a tow truck to get any one of them off the dealer's lot. Six months later and I'm still smiling.
I think its natural we always want more. There's a lot of options I wish I had but these are home machines on a budget and you do get what you pay for. Any machine will have issues and its easy to misinterpret all the problem posts. Rarely are these bashing machine, mostly they are user investigations into an encountered problem which is usually user error but still needs solved. I am very new so I always have a problem and usually is lack of proper use. My new x5 just had mechanical failure too, but this can happen to anything and Syil is sending new part no problem. I have been very happy with machine and service overall. Gets me excited like a kid just looking at it and goosebumps watching it work. It amazes me how responsive and fast it moves such tiny milling bits around!
Good to hear that too~~
Ok I'm requesting a quote for an X4 with powered draw bar and 4th axis. Am I wasting my time? I'm debating between the Syil X4 and an X3 + Promica
For the kind of money I'm spending, I don't want problems. Has anyone had personal experience buying these and from who? I hear the Canadian dealer is the way to go. One of the US dealers already dropped Syil due to design issues with the system and the lack of support from the factory.
Can someone please post their actual experience..
one of my US dealer right now in the plane to visit us from chicago.
my oregen dealer also wait for us load shipment..
i think you better call my dealer in your preson to find out how them service good...
I had mechanical failure. I called dealer no problem usually and if no answer they call me back. We diagnosed machine over phone, they replaced part quickly, I was back running in 3 days. Unless you live next door you can't expect better than that.
What's not made in China you can afford? I like my X5, it works like a champ, runs all night while I sleep and dream up new ideas.
