I like to use the barbell and lean forward a bit, hits the "meat" of the muscle better I think.

My first gym had that type of machine. More people used it for shrugs than presses.
The Hammer Strength dead lift machine was also another very popular shrug device.

yes i used it for that too a waste as a dead lift machine,,,its hard to make a machine to recreate a power barbell movement to function and perform as a say deadlift ,,your foot and hand positions are already at a loss trying to find the groove needed for form ,,each set u do on a machine trying to get situated to do it varies set to set trying to remember where u stood ,leg position front to back,,

Yeah.
With a few exceptions, I feel that most machines are best-suited for simple movements with very short ROM.

I've used this machine a couple time before, one were you can stand or sit and when I tried it standing the whole maching lifted and slid backwards, so I tried it seated this time and the plastic cover on the handles twisted, f'ed me all up. >:(

My gym has the hammer shrugs,rubber handles that don't spin but only holds 5 plates per side.

On ours it doesn't spin but it starts to slip off the end and you end up holding half rubber and half metal.
