FS [2229 Lilli Pilli, Sydney] Promac Club ME 1 group
I am offering my Promac single group Club ME for sale.
I purchased this machine way back in 2011, and it has sat for almost two years unused when it was replaced by a La Marzocco. It was originally purchased in 2009 by a country town bowling club, so you can imagine how little use it had prior to my ownership....almost literally owned by a little old lady and driven on Sunday! I used it daily on a timer from first thing in the morning 'til mid-morning; on average 4-6 shots a day.
I just fired it up and everything is still functional. It would currently make a terrible coffee as it is drawing water out of a bucket rather than mains connected which it is adjusted for.
The Promac is apparently a badge-engineered Rancilio S27 FWIW, with cosmetic and possibly electronic differences.
This machine has been backflushed with water after every shot, and chemically backflushed weekly. It has always been used with softened, filtered water in my ownership, so should be pristine internally. I had to replace the motor at one point as the pump had weeped water into the bearing at some point; also caused some corrosion to the rear panel at some point. I observed the pump regularly after that, but it never leaked again. It may have done it when initially commissioned and I never noticed 'til the motor got noisy. The back panel looks pretty ordinary, but the rest is fine, would benefit from some Nifti and a polish perhaps?
The machine comes with braided fill and drain hoses, documentation, single and double portafilters and baskets, unused group gasket and spacer, plus a couple of gicleur o-rings. I'll scare up a blind-filter also.
Inspections are welcome by mutual agreement, and the machine is located in Sydney's south in 2229 Lilli Pilli.
Price is $800
