    Very nice machines!
    How high is that door exactly? I talked to my local reps and they said no way in will fit under my elevator door that is 200,0cm (78,74inch).

    Getting through the door was a BIG challenge. Door height is 82 inch, but even worse than this because the entry prior to the door is at a slant and a bit cock-eyeed so the machine bottoms out and comes in at an angle. The solution was to have Yamazen (Brother rep in USA) strip down the machine and remove some stuff to temporarily reduce height of the machine and then put it back together after it is inside building. The Speedio is approx 81" height when stripped down in this fashion. Took the riggers and Yamazen almost 2 hours to get it through the doorway. I agree with your rep, you cannot get a Speedio under your elevator at 78.74 inch....the very best/least height for this machine is 81 inch as discussed here.
