I don't think you are going to find anyone here with experience cooking in a rotating hearth oven.  Just from observation they seem like they would be great for slightly slower cooked pizzas(2-3 minutes) in a more production based commercial environment.

In my opinion the biggest pro is the ability to have a lower cost less knowledgable staff run the oven once everything is dialed in.

The biggest con is that you have taken an ancient design that would basically need to crumble to the floor to stop working and added a mechanical feature to it that could lead to breakdowns.

Hi There,

I will be happy to help you with that.

The biggest down size is the price of the oven.

But there are many advantages such as not having to rotate the pizza, very even and consistent cooking result and you really make the most of your floor space.
You have the option of gas of wood fired oven.

Let me know if you want to see some pictures or videos of FGM ovens along with the technical data sheets.
