    Default Anyone familiar with METHODS VMCs?

    Looking to replace an older VF-4 in our shop and came across this one I saw at Methods Machine Tool.
    MV 1100H | Methods Machine Tools
    Comparable price but the specs seem better than the haas. Box way Z, rollers X/Y 15k Big plus spindle, dual augers with lateral conveyor, nice ergonomics, FANUC.
    Seeing what's out there good or bad if anyone owns/runs/have experience with one?

    I am pretty sure that machine is made by Litz Highpower out of Taiwan. They make a good solid basic machine that is rebranded by other companies. A friend of mine had two of them and liked them very much.

    After noticing the fact that it has a 24 y axis Im going to be getting a quote on one aswell.

    Do you know if they have an extended x axis option? Looking for a 50 travel but limited on budget and space so its difficult to go up to a 60x30 machine

    I got in contact with them I didnt even hear about that option but thats what I would want. For me a 50x26 is about the perfect size for larger a vmc for me.

    Not sure on what the quote will come back looking like

    For reference, Methods had a "special deal" on the MV1100H late last year at 99k.
