I have a Weller WE101 that works great.  I never owned a Hakko. but I have read good things about them.  You can't go wrong either way.

I used a Weller Wes-50 for over a decade and it gave up the ghost, I then purchased a Wes-51 and have have used that for a decade. both units worked 40 hrs. a week and the 51 is still running strong, having said that it my be discontinued by now. My 2 cents are don't spend a ton for a production piece unless you are in production.
