From the manufacturer
Heavy duty construction is perfect for professional crafters, entrepreneurs, and small businesses.
A once and forever upgrade.
This is the perfect machine for those who emboss and die cut on a regular basis. Large footprint and heavy weight is perfect for a dedicated embossing and cutting space. Will not move when cutting paper, card stock, foam, cork, magnetic sheets, paper backed fabrics, chipboard, balsa wood, and more.
Cuts just about everything.
Wide bed accommodates larger sheets of material. Cut up to six layers of fabric, four layers of foam, or multiple layers of textured card stock. Steel blades cut multiple layers of fabric at once with accurate precision. Cut a quilt in a few hours rather than days.
Perfect for large projects.
Cut and emboss large projects quickly. The large bed accommodates multiple dies at the same time, which saves production time and increases profit margins. Ergonomic design relieves pressure on the shoulder and back, and the comfort-grip handle makes cranking less fatiguing to wrists and hands.

First thing I would say to anyone thinking of getting a new Die cutting machine, is do your research. Have a look on the Sizzix website, and get the details for the machine. It is big, and it is heavy. You will NOT want to be moving this beast around. It weighs around 40lbs, and its footprint is almost 26" long by 23" wide, including the handle. IF you have a place you can set it up and leave it, then this machine has to be the way to go. Its a once & forever upgrade, which is why I bought one. I was fed up with dies/folders etc getting bigger than my current machine would take. I figure that with a 12 1/2" opening,(the 13" opening quote is not correct!)and a 14" long by 12" wide cutting area, I will never want anything bigger. Despite what one or two people say, this machine WILL cut every die on the market, from wafer thin ones to the supersized ones.I have used the old Red,Yellow & Green Sizzix steel rule dies,Quickutz dies,Tim Holtz dies(including the long Strip dies),Cuttlebug/generic embossing folders, Fiskars Texture Plates, Memory Box, Cheery Lyn,PTI,Nestabilities as well as Brass Embossing stencils.You just have to try out different plate/shim combos for the Non Sizzix stuff.
What you should do, is look around for the BIG SHOT PRO Kit, which comes with the BSP AND all the plates necessary for whatever you may want to use it for. It is easy to operate,and its weight & footprint help to make it so easy- there is no way this machine will move or slide around in use.The plates all have info on them as to which you need for different dies and folders. You can also cut or emboss a number of dies or folders at the same time, as long as they are all the same type. For instance, I can emboss 4 regular cuttlebug type folders at once, or cut 4 Tim Holtz Strip dies.It is sturdy and seems well built. Personally, I can't fault it. It is exactly what I wanted, and what I expected. Beneath the carrier tray there is storage space- I keep a notebook for 'sandwich' recipes there, along with other odds & ends.This is one purchase I have no regrets about, but as I said, look for The Big Shot Pro kit, rather than just the BSP on its own. The kit is a little dearer, but cheaper than buying them all separately.
I have cut a few triangles and squares. I like how it cuts, they are even on all sides. Since I've not used it much, it has a learning curve. I've used AccuQuilt Go! dies in it and they are a little thinner than Sizzix dies. You have to use shims for them. It came with mylar shims but I've been using card stock to boost the height and testing my cuts. Shuffle and test is all I can say. Cranking is fine by me. It's not hard to crank either even with boosting the die. Sizzix dies work fine. I've used cutting with a ruler and cutter for cutting shapes. My ruler slips and cuts are out of whack. What a waste of fabric and it does end up costing. I gave it 5 stars because it does do what I want it to do and it does it great and it's convenient. Just put your die in and cut with the selvage line. I've not done any paper cuts so I can' t comment on that aspect.
