    Briot Emotion vs. Santinellli Le-700

    Hi,
    I am looking to upgrade my edging equipment soon, anyone have any experience with these 2 edgers? I know the Emotion has been around for a few years. I am currently using a Briot Silver. The Le-700 is relatively new from what I understand. Any feedback, opinions would be appreciated. Thanks .

    The difference is that everyone loves using Santinelli edgers and others tolerate Briot if they do not know what the other does.
    I have never heard of anyone who used both and prefer the Briot.
    I sent back a Briot and will only use Santinelli equipment. I am in the process of getting new software to run my edgers from them and will be the first retailer to use such a powerful package.

    It will allow me to run all features that are on the ME1200 on a computer; now we can only save the major parts but cannot do any high curve, step beveling or shelfing on my current 10 year old software package.

    Think about WECO E.3..... or go old school with Indo's Maxima Speed. I know its old haha, but has all the features anyone would need....except for milling (which in the case send it to the lab).
