    Question New Edger Inquiry

    I soon will be finding myself in the market for a new dry-cut edger. I see National Optronics (7Ex & QM-X3) and MEI (641 & EX-Fit) have some machines. Anyone have any experience with either one of these? Particularly interested in the newer machines (QM-X3 & EX-Fit).
    Open to hearing about other machines as well.

    PS - This is a cross-post from the General Forum. This is a more appropriate location.

    The Qm-x3 is a brand new machine just launched. We have not heard of anyone purchasing or having one of those yet so I cant provide any feedback on it. But I am experienced with the 7EX. We have many labs that have purchased the 7EX and its a 50/50 split between bad and good. We have had to work on alot of them. They are exactly the same as the 7E, but the drill assembly has a groover on it and there is a bunch of added safety features they put on the machine for overseas regulations (which cause issues). Based on our observations they were not made as well as the traditional 7E, alot of parts for the machine are being massed produced over seas where on the older 7E most parts are domestic. Your edger needs are going to depend alot on volume you plan on edging and AR%. I will be happy to discuss in more detail with you anytime, just give me a call. Hope this helps!
