Has anybody had experience with BTU and Heller Reflow ovens? What are the major differences if any? Which one would you prefer?

Brad,

I sell both machines on the used market. If you buy the proper oven for your use you should be very happy with either. Both companies are very reputible and responsive when you have problems.

It is important to measure each brand by class. Example: Measuring a top of the line BTU vs. an entry level Heller would not be fair or solve your problem. Each maker has models to satisfy all market segments.

I have both brands in my factory. It is difficult to compare directly because each model satisfies a different market segment. I suggest making a feature / requirement / cost matrix. This can help you make a descision to meet your needs.
