We also use a 100. Didn't realize it wasn't a common commodity.

As stated earlier, a 250 lb tip load is going to be restrictive when your primary use is reach and not height. On a 100' device if you have to run full or close to full extension for single dwelling roof work you'll be very glad for the stabilization a 4 jack system will provide. If you're going up for rescue work to a sixth story then it doesn't matter as much. Which begs the question: which is more common for you?
Since I work for a dealer of a major manufacturer now I'll stay out of the discussion about brand, though if you want opinions you can PM me...Just a guy...
