Hi Keith, it is a blue floor model, and we are asking $8500. The exhaust is 192 CFM through a 6 inch diameter duct. We have the original manual.

Hi keith I saw you were interested in an IR- 3. We have a factory refurb IR-3 that has not been used since we received it from diedrich 2 years ago. A cafe was going to buy it and operated on a college campus and got shut down befor getting the chance. It is still wraped and in the crate as it was received. It is blue, and I believe it is a 2000 -2002 model, though I would have to check. If you are interested please email me at Thanks.
