    Default Shop manual vs. Service manual...

    I need a manual for my MF-230 but I am not sure which is better, a shop manual or a service manual? The service manual is 175 pages and it covers only 230 and 235; shop manual is 95 pages and covers 230-250 models. It seems that the service manual would contain more info since it covers only two models. Any suggestions?

    Shop or repair manual deal with repairs.
    Service manual is usually just an operators manual for maintenance and such.

    Often one needs both to cover everything.
