Power Wrappers pros and cons

I am planning on buying a power wrapper and I was looking for a little help. Was planning on getting a CRB wrapper but my buddy suggested an Alps. Has anyone used one or both of these that can share some feedback and recommendations pros and cons etc. Thanks for your time

Is $289 for The power wrapper only or does it include the base blank supports and hand wrapper with thread holders?

I have tried both, and ultimately I don't think you'll be happy with the CRB. It will probably work just fine for a while, then you'll wish you had gone with a better model. I've got the Alps power wrapper with the upgraded chuck now, and I love it.

The drawback to the CRB, and why I recommend the Alps, is the foot pedal. There is a rheostat on the Alps that I find works very well, and the motor is not direct drive. On the CRB, 0-100% power is in the foot pedal and it is directly driven. It takes too much pedal to start, then goes way too fast for the wraps. The Alps is much easier to adjust down and has the torque to start turning at lower speeds.
