Looking at them side by side, the Italian has a longer handle and provides a greater amount of leverage over the Portuguese model. There may be other differences, but I think that’s the major advantage.What makes the Italian floor corker better than the Portuguese floor corker. While I've never used an Italian floor corker, it does command almost double the price of the other.
The Portuguese corker I have had for the last four years does a great job and I consider it to be a good value for those wishing to upgrade from a hand corker.
I have this corker and it is well built. If you have the same size bottles it is a gem! However, if you don't have a standard bottle size then there are a lot of adjustments during the filling corking process.Or just get a table mounted corker.............
I've frequently thought of building a small platform for mine with some 2x4 or 2x6 and plywood - just to get it a few inches off the ground so I don't have to bend over as much.Just wish they would make an affordable automated corker. Not that young anymore and corking kills my back!
