My Hulcherama is #2. I don't know how many they made. I replaced the motor and circut board when I got it and it now shoots great. I also have a cirkut 10, which is not electric. The Hulcherama is smoother in its operation. Less change of banding on the neg. The film loading is more complicated then with the Cirkut.
I can't really say one is better than the other, they are just different.
