    FOR SALE: Akaneks AKES 1.25 KG Roaster

    I'm selling my beloved roaster. I'm upgrading to a bigger roaster, so I need to sell this one.

    It is an electric 1.25 kg roaster.
    It has been great for me. I do about 3-5kg every 2 weeks.
    I bought it second hand in 2014 from coffeesnobs - you can read that here !!!SOLD!!! - S: Akaneks AKES 1 KG Roaster + Climax Coffee Mill Bag Grinder + Acc

    I live in northern NSW, and can ship it easily.
    I am getting a 5kg roaster delivered from Sydney for $240, so it will be around that for delivery to Sydney.

    Comes with plastic scoop for loading beans and metal bowl for unloading, plus the instruction manual.
    I will also include the data logger if needed.
    Selling it for $3600.

    Feel free to ask any questions.
    You will need a 20 amp power point. This needs an electrician, but is pretty cheap to put in.
    Sorry for the average pictures - taken on my phone under my house.

    Hi All

    After some requests for measurements, I'll put it here for all.
    It is a bit hard to measure, since the electrical panel swings. So when the roaster is being used, I have it swung so the panel is at a right angle as I'm down the cooling end of the roaster.

    The measurements are when set up are

    90cm to 120cm long (can be less with the electrical panel which swings)
    80cm wide - with the chaff collector on
    90cm high

    The measurements for packaging are a bit different as the chaff collector and the funnel come off:
    90cm long (the electrical panel swings to the side of the roaster, not the end)
    80cm wide(with the chaff collector removed but the electrical panel on the side)
    80cm high

    I have it on a long workbench.
    I also have the black metal stand that will be included in the sale. You can see a picture of it in the thread above when I bought it.
    It is not the strongest stand in the world, but certainly strong enough to hold it.

    I also have 2 x 20 amp extension cords. They are both about 10-15m long. I only use 1, but have 2.

    Here are some more pictures. I gave it a bit of a clean up.
    The stand is in pieces, plus there is a bit of wood that i put on the brackets half way up the legs to make a shelf.
    There has been some interest, but its not yet sold.

    ok, Since this hasn't sold, I'm reducing the price. New price is now $3300 plus delivery.
    I can throw in a few extras, some brown coffee bags, a bag sealer (needs a new element though, $9 on ebay for 2).
    I will also send, probably on a usb or email, all of my saved profiles on the roast monitor software.
    This will be a helpful guide to anyone starting on it.

    Keen to sell, so let me know if you are interested.

    Here is a photo of the specifications. The manual has had some water on it, so the pictures are a bit faded.

    The roaster is now ready to be shipped.
    I could possibly deliver it to Sydney in a few weeks, since I am coming down.

    Thats a nice roaster and especially at that price. I'm surprised it has not get been grabbed. Its not too hard to get a 20 amp outlet done by an electrician.
