    Size is everything!

    Hi all

    Does anyone have an idea of the commercial machines with the smallest footprint? Ideally two group but open to any ideas.


    Cheers

    The Compact Megacrem looks a good footprint. 50kg on a small platform will need thinking about but good suggestion Paul thanks.

    Worked on a Megacrem this afternoon, I don't think it's physically possible to make a 2 group machine any smaller. From the back you'd swear it's a single group but then you get to the front and surprise, two groups.

    I recently worked on a Wega Atlas Compact which was still fairly small by normal two group standards but still significantly bigger than the Megacrem, much heavier too.

    The MegaCrem compact is really compact and will run off 10 amp power. The boiler is tiny and plan on steaming short drinks so it can recover but it's cool and cheap. The Ruggero version comes in your favourite colour and a lighted sign with your business name on it.

    I've got a Wega Mininova one group EPU on the bench and it's solid as hell with a Fluid-O-Tech reciprocating pump that's shock and vibratory isolated - hard core build- and can run off mains water and 10 amp power. Cool, weird cube-shaped boiler. Heavy duty shit. Can take a hammering no worries.

    Here's the business end of the Mininova complete with Vita-mix style reservoir. It's a weird, tough animal.
