Worked on most brands and models over the last 34 years but i have to say that the Kyocera KM 4035 is by far the most reliable copier that i have ever worked on.:cool:

I would have to pile in with the Canon iRC2880/3080 range for current machines, we have loads of these in the field and all we ever hear from the customer is a call for toner.

I would also give honorable mention the the GP405 and the iR2200/3300 ranges from Canon as well. They just go and go and go, some have been round the block more times than Britany Spears and they are still going...

Several years ago, I looked after a fleet of 10 Minolta DI-520's all at the same location. They were so good, I actually liked going there for service calls.... plus the chicks were hot at reception.... always a plus!
Those boxes really convinced me of Minolta being a top machine.
These days I would have to say the new Sharp MXM1100 Hercules box is really, really good. Have 2 clients, each have done almost 2Mil in less than a year, with no drama's at all. Very fast, very quiet (no clutches anywhere... all motors etc etc) and very reliable.
Overall, big Sharp & Minolta fan. Sharp MX color boxes are very good too.

Teach your customers how to clean the charge wire, replace the waste bottle, clean the scanner glass, then you will never hear from them again, unless they do something really, really dumb.

I worked on Minoltas from the 8600 days to the Di450. I am glad those days are over. Now we only sell Kyocera and I am very happy with this product line. The only weak spot was color, hopfully this new product line will fill that void.

Most of you are too young to remember but...the best copier ever made was the Mita 900D.

I triple count the Canon iR3300 series! They are so reliable I can sell and service these 5 year old machines refurbished with a penny a page service contracts and make good money. The drum rebuild kits last longer than OEM's, I regularly get 70-90K out of them. I love these machines and will greatly miss them when they become obsolete!

Who made that new box for Sharp, or is it Sharp made, sure sounds like something from Toshiba, like the old AR 651 and 810 line.
And the cougar series and the old, SF 7320, 7370 were some good small machines.

Yeah, but it didn't fold, duplex, scan, fax, sort, staple, recirculate, make booklets, saddle stitch, and, and, and.........:D

It was a good thing.

To late the latest Canon's can browse and print straight from the web and some accept connections from USB sticks, a bluetooth or Infra red connection is only a matter of time.:eek:

Canon and Konica Minolta's, dont have a specific choice

K.I.S.S.

I'll vote for the Ricoh FT5535 and variants.
Near the end of the analog period...these machines were no frills, basic B/W copiers. They modernized Ricoh's transfer belt, OPC & charge roller technology. They had reliable process control & toner add systems.

In my opinion, the KonicaMinolta Di 850 is the best running copier I have ever seen. It will run PM to PM (500K). I have heard these models going strong at 18 million clicks.

whell i have seen a konica 7085 (the same whit minolta di 850) to a meter of 43 mil, but i think that the ricoh 2105 is the best (seen in 60 mil whith proper service pm)

Haven't had a lot of experience in the long term with brands outside Canon, so I will choose the iR2200/3300. I find if properly maintained they go forever, I have a couple units that have passed the 3,000,000 mark, that's 3x their rated lifespan.

I've got two IR3300s and I agree. They are the best. We've had them for years and years and they still work. Both have done under 250k pages I believe. So if 1,000,000 is the rated lifespan they've still got a long life ahead of them.

The new Mx1100 by sharp is incredible. We have one averaging over 300,000 a month and keeps going to PM's with minimal calls.

I thought the Panasonic 7728-7750 series analog series machines were pretty good. They also had a Panasonic 7160 (which I think was a Minolta 6000) for a good, higher-volume, analog box.

I agree that the Ricoh 1027/2027, for lower volume machines, are damn reliable in the field.

For the segment 5 boxes, I think the 1060/1075 Ricoh boxes as very reliable machines. This may be because I know them well, but they are a good Ricoh engine and I generally just hit them for PM's and minor issues in-between.

I would have to agree with the people who are nominating the falcon series machines, they reduced our tech force by 4 techs after we replaced the 4230s and older KM series machines. But if I look back, my favorite machine to work on was the Sharp 8100 and 8260, those were the first 'tech friendly' machines ( unless a shock gave out while you had your hand in it:eek:).

Only if you consider Steven Hawking to be the greatest breakdancer.

I vote the 1027 and it's bretherin.

I had these machine in the worst s%#& holes in the Bronx and they ran until the spindles on drive wore out, even then they would be on 45 degree angle and still work.

Anyone remember the Canon NP120?
Cold process machine LOL. I once walked into my shop to have a newbie trying to remove pressure spring on fuser rollers. would have made good Pic. for rotten.com if I let him.
That it made copy look like a thermal fax makes it a little weird.

have to agree with visitor - - - the Minolta 4000/5000 series are so good that we hardly ever hear from those customers anymore!!!


Imagine that you don't here from them anymore? They're dead thats why. The Canon iR3300 series and the iR5000 series also the Panasonic DP-C262/322 are right up there.

Sbarro....I am in agreement with the Toshiba 1340/1370 pick (desktop class)

I am AMAZED...Just how well engineered and designed this tiny, 55 pound, (13 copies per minute), ANALOG series(Toshiba1340/1350/1360/1370) runs. "Terminator" is the word that best describes this little beast. And the Toshiba 2060/2080 is the 20/28 CPM faster version and a bigger beast. I sold these brand new out of a crate...I became the Maytag man waiting for them to break. And 10+ years later, im still waiting for a service call.
Me: "Hi, how can I help You" ....
my customer:" Hi Joe, Im calling about our Toshiba (1340/1350/1360/1370/2060/2080 ..pick one)"
Me: "AH.HAA!!! You need service right??
My customer: " No, we just added our last TONER... Can you drop off a case when you have time.....No rush"
Me to myselfl:"DOH!!"
Now the question is HOW do you go from making outstanding machines .... and follow that up with the E studio series that is an insult to the word shit?

There are a lot of great machines out now but my vote goes to the Canon IR550/600 series.

Good machines, most of the problem can be fixed in a short peroid of time. easy to troubleshoot.

Another vote for the Canon iR3300 series. Extremely reliable workhorse of a machine, so good in fact, that customers are reluctant to part with them when the lease expires. I'll be sorry to see them disappear too, because they made me look good!
