  • !!SOLD!! [Syd/NSW] Rocket R58 Espresso machine

    I am selling my R58 as I have recently become an Alex Leva owner

    This machine was purchased (near new) from another CSer 2 years ago & has been my loyal companion since. It is in IMMACULATE condition and has been exceptionally well looked after. It was used for 3 months from the tank using appropriately filtered water and for the last 21 months has been plumbed with a C150 filter/PLV setup. Since my divorce nearly 12 months ago it has been used as a single boiler machine only as I'm an espresso drinker. I used the PID to activate the steam boiler every fortnight or whenever a milk drinker was visiting. The machine was backflushed daily & espresso detergent backflushed monthly. It has never missed a beat & if you're reading this ad you know how good these machines are. They are a robustly built, dual boiler, rotary pump machine that looks amazing.

    The machine comes packaged in the original box & has all the OEM accessories including Rocket milk jug, tamper, 2 portafilters & baskets, manuals etc. Original purchase receipt included [from CoffeeParts Australia].

    I have reconfigured the machine back to work off tank water & to utilise the drip tray. All the OEM accessories are in the box to allow converting back to plumbed (a 2 minute job). I have also included a braided steel water supply hose with appropriate fittings still in place to enable direct connection to a C150 filter/PLV water supply with no hassles. Included is a choice of 3 steam tips - 1.2 & 1.5mm 2 hole & 1.2mm 4 hole.

    Since the Alex Leva has a different size brew head I have some other accessories that may be available if you're interested also including naked PF, blind basket, Espro click tamper, higher legs, VST baskets, OE Ipanema dosing cylinder & stainless steel OE dosing funnel.

    I have included only one photo with the machine as it was on my bench prior to packing it away - you can be assured it is in perfect condition. All photos and specs of this machine can be "Googled".

    I am looking for $2500 for this beautiful machine.

    Please do NOT 'low ball' me with ridiculous offers. I would consider shipping the machine via courier subject to negotiation but obviously I would prefer local pickup as I can personally guarantee the condition of the machine without courier involvement.

    I am happy to answer any questions - feel free to ask.

    Cheers,
    Doug

      What a bargain Doug. I'd like to hope that at your advertised price, you will have prospective buyers high-balling via PM. I would have thought that $3k was realistic.

      Good luck with the sale!

                      Perhaps the OP is waiting for more "high-ball offers"

                        He may well be. They're unobtanium at the importers- so for new, it's a case of wait or search for a reseller who might have one sitting around...

                          I'm not greedy. I am willing to accept my asking price and I've had a significant number of enquiries. I work long hours during the week & I'm doing the right thing by offering to bring the machine to potential buyers to show them first. The weekend is the only time I can do that. I am in the process of arranging 'showings' for this weekend.
