This machine folds at the push of a button. If you don't need the power folding feature, the features of the 6.45 make more sense for less money. If you like the features of the 6.45 and want the power folding feature, the 7.6 makes more sense than the 7.1 HR Pro
Good features but this model is a bit long in the tooth. The 6.45 or the 7.6 make more sense to us. Smooth has really done a good job in their lineup when the 7.1 is one of their weaker models.
