Default Electric Accuquilt?

I have an Accuquilt and I love it. Unfortunately, I have a medical condition now (besides old age) that prevents me from using force in my arm to turn the crank. Anyone have the electric one? Before I consider buying one, I need input, please. Thanks!

I have the Go and bought the Go Big so I could use the bigger dies. I haven't used it that much but it works great. Where I have the Go set up in my sewing room there is no electric plug close by so I usually use the crank Go for most of the cuts. I don't think you will be disappointed with how easy it is to use.

I have the GO and if I could reconcile it I would buy the electric one in a heartbeat! Go for it.

If you have the funds, then I would go for it. Just make sure many of your current dies will fit it.

I saw one demo'd at the quilt expo Friday. If I had the money I would go for it. I've used the crank one, quite nice, but man was my arm and shoulder sore the next day

Any Go or Go Baby die will fit the Go Big.

I have the Go crank and decided to get the electric one
and I love it. So easy to use and plan to get all my scraps
cut up and organized as soon as I finish a couple of projects.
I can use all my Go dies with it.
