PHSChemGuy I run a fundraising campaign where we collect $5000-$7000 in coins in three weeks. We ran all these coins through the machine in that time frame, and it survived admirably.It did jam from time to time, but once we got used to the optimum speed at which to feed coins into the machine, it jammed far less frequently.This is a machine that needs to be watched, not one to dump in a huge amount of change and walk away. For home use or small business use, this is a great value.
Bill I used it for counting change submitted in banks for Missions Conference at church. I counted a total of 16 banks each containg mostly change. It only jamed twice because someone put a watch battery in one and one had a bent coin.
minimom Does not take Coins larger than a quarter (dollar and half dollars will just rattle in the machine)Makes coin counting and wrapping a breeze. Cuts money processing time down to a few minutes. Add the Royal Sovereign Currency Counter and you will have a virtual "Mini Bank". Best tools I ever purchased for the office!

Takeo I love this sorter so much I almost closed my bank account so I would only have cash and be able to have more change. It's so quiet and it's fast. It hasn't jammed yet so I have no idea how hard it is to clear jams. I dropped in a lot of change and it sorted through it very quickly.
KP Great for home use, if you put too many in it will stop or jam. We got tired of paying to sort our coins, this is good enough for our personal use since we are not in a hurry to get it counted.
ColtsFan1978 I had it out of the box and sorting within 10 minutes. Of course...for whatever reason, this machine STOPPED working in less than half that time. I have less than $20 in coins at the moment, but it's all in a jar (mostly pennies). I wanted to count it and have it in rolls so it would be easy for me and the bank associates to deal with at the counter. Unfortunately, a little over half way done with the coins....this machine stopped dispensing the coins into the tubes. I opened it up to make sure it wasn't clogged (which it says shouldn't happen often), but I couldn't find any coins that were out of place or jammed somewhere they shouldn't have been. So, I took the time to remove ALL the coins from the machine and start over. I turned it off, let it sit for about 5 minutes...turned it back on and tried again. The machine turned on, the ticking sound started, so I placed more coins back into the sorter, and NOTHING....still didn't work again. So, I'm taking this back to get the cheaper costing model (the manual crank) and see if that works for me.
tombaxter I bought this to count 90% US silver coins. It would fill a few tubes and then jam. I'd unjam it and it fill a few more tubes and then jam again, repeatedly. Unjaming it consisted of removing the coins I could touch, turning it upside down and shaking it. Finaly, that didn't work. There's still a few coins hidden inside the machine. I'm taking it back. It's not that it jammed. I expected that. It's that I can't figure out how to unjam it.
