I LOVE this juicer. When I read about the benefits of a masticating juicer I settled on this one from all the great reviews I read. I was not disappointed! This one may be similar to the 8006, but maybe the 8006 is more sophisticated. I don't know. I know the price is higher. Either way, I love Omega. I just got back into juicing and am serious about it. Just juiced my first wheatgrass today. It's awesome!
