Would be easier to answer this question if you were significantly more specific. Simply announcing that you want to buy a machine for a business (unknown what kind of business you're talking about) that you're starting; I would say start with a Klippermate?

How about you give some detail on:
  • Budget
  • Volume
  • Clientele (rec players, HS team, college, touring pros, etc)
  • Location (home or storefront)
  • Location in the world
  • Desire features

Feels like a low effort question; if you want serious answers help yourself by giving the forum as much detail as possible.

Add to that, have you ever strung before?

If you know your stuff, I'd and it's a business, I think you should get an Alpha Ghost 2.

Umm, that's a very open question. For a start up business I would recommend buying the best used machine you can find to keep from spending too much cash before you have any cash flow.

I have a Gamma Progression II ELS, which is an electric constant-pull machine with 6-point mounting and fixed clamps. It's basically a table-top machine, which I wanted when I found it, but Gamma sells a separate floor stand for it, too.

I've had this machine for over six years. I string for a healthy circle of local players of all levels, coach high school teams in the spring and fall, and teach a lot in the summers. This machine has been nothing but great for me - zero troubles. I've heard from several sources that Gamma's customer service is quite good, but I've never needed to call them. I know that you're not in the U.S., but if one of these machines is available to you, it might be worth a look.

I forgot to mention that this machine will also string squash racquets.

Many of the members here are from the US, and the majority of the answers you'll receive are to some extent location dependent. I'm from the UK, and when I researched machines on this board, I found that several of the suggestions weren't available in my country. Prices also differ by locality. My suggestion is to determine what machines you can actually buy, and at what cost. The combination of availability and budget may present you with an answer - if not, you can always come back here for opinions of specific models once you've narrowed down the field.
