We would need 10 people to get the better price, but the shipping would likely go up a smidge. And then once the shipment came in we would have to ship to the different locations which might add about $30 per unit.
I'd guess we'll probably end up with a net price delivered around $750-$800 (saving about $150 per unit)
Did some google search. In this Taiwanese site, it was mentioned there are different models: one with thermocouple, one with adjustable, variable drum rotation rate, and perforated vs non-perforated drum.
Would be nice to see 1 first. If 11 think they want one they could share the risk to buy one to have it checked out if it's junk, group put it on ebay. If it's good it would just add a little to each of the 10 for the difference. Or they might send 1 at full price and give a little break on the lot. There's also a chance a slight change might be suggested once you play with one,that they could accommodate
