Is Adler a good machine brand?

I have an opportunity to purchase a compound-feed sewing machine with a clutch motor and table from a dealer who is liquidating a factory that went belly-up. (The unit I am looking at does not have the electronic controls.)

I have been looking at the Tacsew 111-115 and Consew 206rb as possible choices in my budget of $1100-1300 range.

The Adler is less than half that, but I am not very familiar with the brand. (Most of the info I find on the internet is in German or various Scandinavian languages, which I don't understand, beyond looking at the pictures.)

Are these good machines? Will I be able to get parts/service for it, or would something more mainstream (like an old industrial Singer, or new unit above) be a better choice living in the Eastern United States?

Thanks. (Long time lurker - finally took the plunge...)
