the machete is a beef'd up version of the crush....i say the machete just cause of the fact that its the new and improved park/all mountain..i wanna get the machete...but i have a sierrascope fk, indoor survival fk and a burton clash that i abuse just cause i dont want the board anymore lol

From what I've seen, the Crush is more flexible and geared towards freestyle riding, while the Machete is a bit stiffer and meant for all-mountain with a splash of freestyle.

IMO having ridden the Crush and the Machete Id describe them as follows..

Machete .. a good mid flex all around board that comfortable anywhere on the mtn... best for all mtn people who like to dabble in the park.. in the park it handles jumps better than rails/boxes

Crush .. a softer board that does well in the park but can handle all over the mountain .. best for people who like the park but dabble in all mtn freestyle/natural jibs or jumps ... in the park it handles rails/boxes better than jumps

does that make sense?

It comes down to preference. If you prefer to ride a stiffer board go with the Machete if you prefer softer go with the Crush ...

The crush should be your weapon of choice if you're a park rat. Just don't go bombing steeps with that board. You'll be sliding down the mountain on your ass.
