  • Gutter contractors or residential gutter installers who only want to offer one style of gutter: K-Style. With combo machines that offer two different sizes of K-style gutters, you don’t have to purchase an additional machine. 
  • Smaller gutter businesses or people new to portable rollforming equipment: If you’re looking for a budget-friendly machine with the ability to add extra accessories in the future, this machine is an excellent option to begin your portable rollforming journey. 
  • Anyone who only needs the basic machine and functions: The 5” and 6” MACH II machines are small enough to fit comfortably inside a box truck. Any MACH II machines can fit inside an enclosed trailer or the tandem axle trailer available from NTM. However, this machine is limited in its use of electric-only power and a manual shear.
