Purchased new in April 2009. Very good to excellent working order. US Roasters 5 kilo (11 lbs.) hybrid, all-electric, drum, coffee roaster with upgraded, electronic PLC touch-screen control system. Runs on 220 volt/45 Amp (no propane or gas). PLC touch screen provides infinitesimal roast control (0 to 100 percent) for heat/power and fan speed. Also offers semi-automatic operation and can save/run up to 10 roast profiles (select a profile, load the beans, start program, beans will automatically discharge at the end of the profile/roast). Also offers fully manual operation (how I used it - I like control and really wanted the touch-screen control and features!).
Used about 8 to 10 hours per week. Religiously cleaned on a two-week cycle. Purchased a second, identical unit when we opened a second roasting studio and café 2 hours away. After having moved our family a year later and having grown weary of commuting back-and-forth, we made the decision to close down the original location - thus this roaster being available. Last used in June.
This is a very solid, thoughtfully designed and well-built machine (weighs ~895 lbs. machine only).
