Inline fillers are generally better as entry level machines for small businesses.  Inline fillers are cheaper and easier to maintain (during production the machine can be stopped and fixed with less complication than an equivalent rotary machine), and as entry level machines, they can be initially purchased with as few as 4 heads and can be scaled up as needed.

While inline is commonly used after upgrading from semi-auto machines for small businesses, rotary machines can offer a small footprint per production capacity. We even offer a small 1000bph automatic rinser/filler/capper rotary monoblock for  growing businesses.

It really depends on the volume of containers you are planning on filling but as an entry level I would suspect that your production will not warrant the rotary filler. An inline filler can be adjusted for many different size containers without the cost of change parts that are required for each different size container on a rotary filler, and you can start with a couple of fill heads and add on as your production increases.
