Mahlkonig K30 Vario Air purchased for a steal!
Hey so I just got a 4 yr old K30 Air as an upgrade from my Super Jolly. Came across it on ebay for under $1k and thought "yep that'll do".
The owner says it's only been used for home use, and he just put new burrs in a couple months ago.
He told me it's only had home use after I had already paid, so I'm pretty happy to believe him.
I just wonder if anyone on the forum has some advice on how I could check it out for signs on age, or needs of repairs I should say, quickly when I receive it, before I put it to use in my little cafe.
I've never had one before, or been in the same room as one... so I am going in blind.
I assume I will open it and feel the burrs with my fingers to see if they feel sharp. Anything else I should do? I just don't wanna start using it and have it break down all of a sudden half way through a day.
Jeepers! He must have been making lots of coffee at home to need new burrs after just 4 years of domestic use.
Second owner maybe?

Does the Mahlkonig not have a plate with manufacture date? The Compaks do...
Iíll let you know as soon as I get my hands on it.
