Looking for 7 -10 Kg roaster on US west coast or Canada


New member
I live on an island off the east coast of Vancouver Island and am looking to see if I might be able to find a well loved and cared for used roaster. I was thinking I would buy new, but wanted to at least try to see what might be available "used". Because I live rather remotely, I am considering a new roaster due to the difficulty getting repairs, parts,etc. but if I can find a relatively new one that has been very well maintained, I will consider used.
I need a 7-10k, AMBEX, Diedrich, or USRC. I know of a PRIMO 10kthat is 10yrs old and they are asking $8000, but am less familiar with that company. Any insight on this company, this roaster, price?

Also, if someone could give me some info re: the important things to ask and consider when buying used. I have been using a Sivetz roaster, so am not familiar with all the drum roaster questions.

Thanks in advance~
