    External Pump & motor needed

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just bought a single group Gaggia Visacrem GX machine and found out it has no pump or motor :(.

    They are about $500 new (more than I payed for the machine).

    does anyone know where i can purchase a second hand one?

    Thanks.

    Hi Cam,

    to get the price down a little get in touch with Roehlen Industries in Moordialloc (Melbourne), they are the Procon importer and have reco pumps and can fit it to a new motor for you price should be more like $300 ish for both. Tell them you are looking for an espresso machine and the pressure range you are looking for as the relief valve springs vary.

    ie if you are drawing from mains with a pressure reducing valve (350kpa) you need the pump to add about 600 kpa or if you are drawing from a tank the pump needs to add all the pressure (950kpa)

    The other choice is try second hand catering equipment places you might get lucky.

    Thanks, I will try them.

    I had a look online at the different pumps they sell.

    They have different flow rates.

    Does anyone know what flow rate the pump should be?
