That is an INCREDIBLE deal! In fact, if you're willing to sell it for $750 and make yourself a little profit, please let me know. In my case, I have now bid on a Mark III up to $900 that sold for $1175, on a Consolidated Dutchwest 264CCL which I bid up to $380 and sold for $455, and though I did not bid on a used 20+ year old Vigilant, it too sold for $860!
Several weeks back, using DClassifieds, I did locate a Mark III for around $700, only it was over 17 years old. I can only imagine how worn that unit was.
So, my offer still stands, anyone with a USED Wood/Coal burner, or dedicated coal burner interested in selling to me, please contact. I do appreciate knowing that there is that chance of getting a great deal if you just happen to be in the right place at the right time. Hopefully my time will come soon...
On a brighter note, I have available 3 downed trees that I can cut and split at my leisure for next year's heating season... and still have aprox. 2 cords of aged wood that I have cut, and just need splitting.
Thanks for your ray of hope.
