  1. Great Machine but Pricey

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 20th 2017

    Eastman Cardinal is a great machine...dependable and powerful. I don't think there is another round knife cutting machine that compares to it. That being said, you get what you pay for. Price can be daunting! We love ours (we have two Eastman 548-52H) and hope they last a long time.

  2. Very Powerful Machine

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 3rd 2016

    We can cut 2" (40 ply) of our material like butter with this Eastman Machine. A fabulous machine which we could not do without. Don't be scared off by the price...we plan on using our new machine for many many years, as it is solid, high quality and a workhorse. We couldn't be happier with our purchase
