Default Question for Big Shot Pro owners

I have a questions for those of you who are blessed with owning the Big Shot Pro. Do you find it hard to crank?

I'm xperiencing the start of arthritis in my shoulders and I am finding that the Cuttlebug seems to cause me pain. Was considering buying the Big Shot Express or the Vagabond, but I'm concerned about those electric motors.

I am prepping my craft room for retirement and I would like to have a die cutting machine that will stand the test of time without wearing me out in the process.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

The BS Pro is VERY easy to crank - the easiest of the three. The sandwich on that uses the crease pad for bigz dies so there is almost no resistance going through...

The regular Big Shot is easier than the bug - at least for me.

i think it turns very easy. i like my cuttlebug because i am familar with how to use it, but i wrestle with it as it doesnt stick to any surface.

I have Neuromuscular disease, including some very weak muscles, and I find it easy to crank. Sometimes after a bit of cutting my shoulder is sore, but I expect that. It turns smoothly with very little strength.
