    i got a new roaster - Phantom 7kg

    HI Guys

    Although i don't have it up and running yet due to some gas issues (lack of local knowledge from rural plumber!) i thought id post a picture

    Is anyone else using a Phantom at all that would like to share tips and tricks??

    Managed top get it off the truck, through the sliding glass doors and off the pallet all with the help of our trusty tractor (and dads foreman like advice!)

    Picture of roasting shed (6x4 wish it was triple the size!) at bottom incase anyone is interested, pre insulation and air conditioning

    Yeah, local plumber won't be able to tick all the required boxes either.

    You need a "Type B" gas fitter/plumber to commission the roaster and it will need ESV (Energy Safe Victoria) to tag it before use.

    See a previous post on the subject:

    You could also try:
    Gastite - Steve Hardiman - 0408 505 857
    ...he has installed quite a few roasters around rural Vic and knows the hurdles well.

    Shed looks great Luke. CRA are literally across the road from me, the Phantoms are a very good looking bit of kit

    Looks awesome. I run a 2kg Solar. Envious. Appears that you are going into roasting pretty seriously. All the best!
