Default CNC Router Shopping

As some here know I am a DIY’r and post a few of my projects in here . When I finally retire I would like to start building and selling things like a few here are doing. I showed the mrs some of the things that can be made with a CNC router and she has given me the green light. I do not want your entry level machine but something with a good size capability and well made. Looking at the New Wave Shark HD 520 or possibly an Axiom AR 8. Really want a 48” wide unit for bigger pieces but the boss probably won’t approve the expense. Does any here dabble with these routers? Please shed some light on this stuff. Future issues would be the software as I am a pencil and wood block guy.

When im ready to upgrade, I definitely want a bigger machine, at least 48 x 48.

But most importantly, it needs a spindle and not a router.

Ive looked at avid and stepcraft

I work for HAAS might wanna call the office ask for salesman in your area and see what offers and machines we have. Factory is giving huge deals right now due to covid. No I'm not in sales, I'm service and will not get anything out of it, just trying to help.
