Got a Supermax about a month ago. So far, it’s been great. Just watch the feed belt for moving to the side. It’s slow to move back as you adjust it but this is an issue on any brand. When a machine just does what it’s supposed to, you end up pleased with it! Unfortunately, you’re about 6 weeks late from when Laguna had a 10% off sale.
I've had a suppermax 16/32 for about 5 years. At the time I got it over a Jet because of the paper changing, its intellisand feature, dust collection and its tool less bed tilt when sanding pannels over 16". I had used a performax before which I think is now Jet. To us the bed tilt feature you have to lose the screws a bit. That bit of info in not easy to find in the manual. I think jet has the same or simular feature and the intellisand now.
