Hi
I'm looking at this used grinder, I'll upload a few pics from different angles.
Hoping for some opinions on it's value, I was told it was serviced in the last year and not used since, and that it was bought 2nd hand
previously and might be 10 years old.
I'm buying a solid machine precisely because it can last for years, so I'm not scared off by the scratches, just want to pay a fair price
and know that parts are available and hopefully it's a better bet overall than a new little machine under $400 or so.

Asking price is moreorless $250 to $300

Thanks in advance.

It seems to be an old style Super Jolly, by the foot shape and the tall bean hopper. The lack of cooling slots on the side of the grinder bars it from being a Major but it is hard to tell the size of it. It MIGHT be a mini but that is just a WAG (Wild A$$Guess) black color makes it hard to see and there isn't anything for scale in the picture.

It looks like someone has repainted it at least once, all the makers stickers are missing.

That is a fair price if the motor and bearings are sound. Burrs will likely need to be replaced. Mazzers are built like tanks and it should outlast your children if you choose to keep it that long.

Thanks for the info.
Here's a pic with a Wega in the background, no idea which Wega it is but maybe it helps. I'm in a different city so I can't pop around and take a look.


There are a few like-new Wegas up for auction within 2 km of my home next Wednesday so I'll hold on and see if I can snap one up then,
I want a great machine but I don't want to pay $500 for it. :)

If I had to be nailed to a ID for that grinder, I say SJ. The AL doser puts it at about 10 or more years old give or take a little, the small window in the bottom of the doser indicates that this is an automatic grinder, only automatics come with a dose counter and that window is for a dose counter.

New, in the U.S. , online, it is in the ball park of $750. For a view of most of the Mazzer line and to see how much they look alike, check out,

Even better, now I'm hoping it's still available next week.
Seller mentioned that the counter indicates 269, but perhaps it rolled over at 9999999, hehe.

Thanks again.
