    Sounds resonable to me. Cast iron table , welded steel frame, linear way , ball screws, water cooled spindle with chiller, Commercial controller, Support.

    The only thing not great about teh router is teh low Z height. It needs to be 12" instead of just 6" . That would allow you a great 4th axis option.

    What I was thinking! A look thru the owners manual does show a A axis connection. That leaves only 5" or less for 4th axis material size. Maybe they plan extensions or other mod for people that want to whittle away on 6"+ material on a 4th axis.

    Even without a 4th iff you have thck material and a long enough bit to work teh full depth you will be out of Z travel and not be able to cut teh part..

    True!
    It does spec 6" gantry clearance and to me that implies the spindle with tool lifts above gantry, so user should be able to get most of the 2.5"radius turn envelope.
