    Wtb: High end hx or db machine

    Just putting it out there to see if any CS would like to sell their machine. Looking for a fairly new (no more than 3-4 years old) high end Hx or might be able to stretch budget to a DB machine from any well known brands such as ECM, Izzo, Profitec, Rocky, Bezzera etc.
    I live in Vic so any interstate sellers need to be able to ship and would prefer to have original packaging and accessories if possible and price wise looking at a maximum of $3000.
    Thanks for looking.

    Your $3000 budget is awfully close to new machine price for a few models. I'd try using the quote form at the bottom of the Forum HomePage and see what the Site Sponsors can offer. Charlie at JetBlack Espresso is worth chatting to about the Profitec Pro 600 which would be worth a look. You should also be able to get a good deal on the Profitec Pro 500 PID under your max price if you are going to stay with a Hx machine.

    or the link for the quote form is https://coffeesnobs.com.au/forms.php?do=form&fid=1

    Thanks for the replies guys, i should have clarified up to $3000 for a excellent condition Double Boiler or around the $2000 - $2250 mark for a HX Machine. If buying new I would prefer to deal with the sponsors in Melb for follow up service.

    I'd still talk to Charlie at JetBlack about the Profitec Pro 600 dual boiler. I once asked about warranty repairs if I buy from him and he said he had an authorised repairer(s?) in Melbourne. He's the Profitec distributor so there should be no warranty issues if he pointed you at a repairer here in Melbourne.

    Use the quote form to see who can offer a good price on a Hx machine.

    Check the sponsors list if looking for someone in Melbourne to talk to.

    Unfortunately your post looks a little similar to some that have been on CS recently where non-sponsor retailers were trying to tout for sales by using leading posts. I'm a bit wary these days unfortunately as I'm sure others are.

    Thanks again CafeLotta for your advice. I understand your apprehension but I can assure you that I am not trying to tout for a sale. I am simply looking for a well looked after machine to go with the new Atom grinder I have just purchased from Antony at Casa Espresso in Melb (a fantastic sponser of CS and a fantastic price to match, not to mention a great person to talk to).

I ended up getting a Technika Profi here in Perth for a great price but this was my first choice until the Technika offer. Dibartioli have outstanding service to as does Jet black!
