    I thought a 'mill' had the advantage of extreme rigidity compared to a gantry router while a gantry router had the advantage of a much larger work envelope compared to a mill. This 'mill' appears to have the dissadvantages of both.

    Haas are about the money, not so much the quality.
    The only thing Haas about it will be the price of any spare parts which will have had the OEM ID removed and replaced with a Haas part number along with a Haas appropriate price tag! :D
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Ya Think? :D
    At least with it being a Haas if there's a version which comes with a tool changer it will probably come off easily, though usually unexpectedly! ;-)
