I am new to the world of coffee, but like many of my others hobbies- once I get in, I'm hooked. I have been looking for a grinder that will produce a great consistent grind for my Chemex. Scrolling through Craigslist I noticed this Bunn grinder, which appears to be a G9-2T HD. The description only lists that it is a digital dual grinder. My question is, I realize this is completely overkill for home use, but if it produces a great consistent grind for ~6-8 cups a day, then why not if I have the space in my garage? Oh yeah, he only wants $125 for it too.
On a side note, I'm planning on meeting him tomorrow to pick it up. What should I be looking for in a monster like this?

Hi, welcome to the board. Like anything, condition. If it grinds it is probably ok. You need to count on replacing the burrs though. They are not changed near often enough to keep the grinder in peak performance. It is a good grinder and I have seen them used in restaurant supply stores for over $700. I paid $125 for mine and that included a plumb in drip brewer that brews into 2 L air pots and a couple of air pots too. The volume of grind and the grind size are both adjustable so you can make as much or little grounds as you want. The two bins are about 2.5# of beans each but you will never put that much in it in a home environment, it will go stale LONG before it gets used. Good luck on the grinder, a lot of us have commercial grinders and some nuts like me have many commercial grinders. At the moment I have 6 but depending on supply/demand I can have more but it has been a long time since I have had less LOL!
OH, BTW, in your picture, it looks like the cover over the grounds timer is missing. This is not often adjusted and is set for one volume of grounds and then used for the same setting a long time. It may give you a little niggle to hit the seller with.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
