I see... Do you have any input as to it's performance vs. la pavoni?

La Pavoni has no hot water wand, just the normal steam wand

Lets please keep this on Topic.
First off, the L1 is a COMMERCIAL Style machine, with a 58mm PF, large boiler, heavy duty spring, Bosco Group, etc.

Gotcha, spring lever all the way!  The L-I certainly has good points and in fact I need to go use it now!

I don't own that machine, (one day I hope) but I was thinking for that amount of money I would rather have more power. (Tim Allen grunts here)  I just wondered out of all of his offerings what one was the correct one for the USA if I did not want the 110v one.  I imagine someone else might have the same question....

Posted February 6, 2013 link

Order a 220v version.

Having fun is my main job these days :)  But the darn doctors appointments get in the way.  The older you get the more numerous they become :(

When I think about upgrading this is the only machine that has my attention, nothing wrong with others like the Duetto or R58 etc, but for the $$ the L-1 is just a beast for what it offers.

Well, your other 2 machines are awesome representations of pump machines.
A bit of apples and oranges when comparing to a spring lever.
