Wow. I've never seen them used, but it's certainly an aesthetically pleasing machine. It has the stats of a solid machine, but that can be misleading at times. I'd also be interested to see if anyone has experience with it.

I have never seen one but it is likely made by a major maker and rebranded by the strong company (is that the company's name?)
Rotary pump, large boiler, volumetric dosing, lever steam and water controls. I would GUESS that it is made with "off the shelf" parts as far as pump, control boxes etc but it MIGHT be unique to that machine which would be an issue if in the future there were repairs need.

Blue lights can be added to just about any machine, if you want that bling.

Sorry I can't be much more help. Are you thinking about buying one or is this just a general question?

I know I can buy a great used or rebuilt for 3 to 4k but if i Can buy new for around the same price ? then why not and this shop is here in the same state .... It will be used in a drive though and I will have 2 of them . Then I never have down time if when is wanting to break ot gos out .... and if I go the other way 1/2 drive though and have sit and eat some thing .. then they are nice to look ... I bought a used one on ebay for my self in the home and it was a nightmare ... needed parts and the shop there in NY would not give them to me or any repair shop in the states they would just hang up on me or them ... they didnt sale it to me dir and would repair it them self or I could just F off ( nice guys ) .. so with the help of Cris coffee    http://www.chriscoffee.com/    and a bout a year later ( trac parts down and wait for them to come ) and then find a shop willing to work on it ( took it to 3 shops till I found one willing to work on it )  http://espressorepairexperts.com/        here is the info about what I have     "Re: Doser or Doserless ? and what is the best to buy for under 500.00 ??"    it made by  Izzo for Myway and ..FAMA Venezia 1 gr....its rebranded a few times .. So  I never never want to go though some thing like this again .. So now I'm here to ask for help and learn ....

John, when buying for commercial application you should never buy from people-companies that are not ready to give service, no matter how nice the deal looks.
Ciao, Pietro
