Default Chicago HSB812

I am about to purchase (Tuesday) this hydraulic apron brake, has anybody have any experience at all about this machine. We are making 500 large boxes in aluminum 0.63 5052 and my people is really getting tire of bending this material, box is 89 " long.
Do you think this machine will help ??
A machine dealer suggested a Roto-die, but, I feel this is the right machine, of course, I have no experience at all . Actually we are in the woodworking business. On the other hand I just bought ( Friday) a Niagara hydraulic shear (10 ga x 10).
Thank you all for any ideas on the matter.
