    I like the look of Komo, Thermwood, and Haas, but we need a vacuum table since we'll be milling 1/4" HDPE as well. It doesn't look like they offer one?
    Not sure about the Haas, but the Komo and Thermwood would certainly be available with a vacuum table. But I'd also expect them to be well over your budget.

    We need a CNC router with a 4'x'8' or larger table with a multi tool to change from milling to drilling automatically. It will be used to cut HDPE. That's the basic requirement.

    My boss has come up with the SmartShop MT by Laguna tools which could also score, slice, debur, etc. Deburing is really handy. Scoring and slicing however isn't as much. We cut corrugated plastic, but not often.

    So, what's the general consensus on Laguna CNCs? What are some good alternative CNC router brands to look at?
    Take a look at Legacywoodworkingcnc.com they have large and small cnc Mills with a fourth and fifth axis if needed. The prices are really reasonable too. I have had one for 8 years

    That link for Legacy doesn't work; try this one: https://lwmcnc.com/cnc-mills/
