Whitfield/Standard, British and built to last, often forgotten amongst the clamour for the  so called better engineered and more expensive European models, most of which are no longer manufactured!

Funny that as my dad says he was advised by Standard that the Power machine was the way to go and the best shoe machinery available, he was taken on a factory tour at Standards expense back in the late 80's ealy 90's before spending over 20k on a new setup.

If you had the money!!!

But, times have changed, I'm not slagging off Power, or any other manufacturer, just saying that we still produce NEW, well engineered British built machines at great value prices, Power can't.

So do they not manufacture any new machinery at all then Keith ?.

Over the years I've come to the conclusion there is no 'best' finisher, I've also realised there is no 'best' motorbike but spent a lot of money trying to find it :) -  there are a lot of factors like how much space do you have, how much money do you have, what is important in a finisher, what machinery were you brought up on, do you need a wide band, fixed brushes or tumble brushes, do you want good extraction or can you compromise, how much work do you have, how many different people will use it, how well will you look after it, do you have to have brand new (new doesn't mean best or even better we have seen that from China). If you are in the market decide what you want, have a look at the machines and see if they will do what you want.

We did exactly the same. Bought a full Power Unit with air filtration for the glue and spray along with a DH86 blake and corner storage unit.....all in bright PINK!! still going strong today 28 years later. Top machines!

Power claim they build NEW machines, I'm not sure when the last one was built and supplied to the UK? Pete?

As Peter says, it's all about what you and your business needs, we can then supply a machine as a solution for your business :-)
