Somehow I suspect that you already have the information we could provide from just seeing some pics like this:
It's a big commercial 2-group machine
It probably needs a 220V (30A) electrical circuit
It needs to be plumbed in for operation

Depending on condition then it's probably worth somewhere between $150 and $1500

What else do you want to know?

Cheers,
Jon

You might check websites for parts (like stefano's espressocare, parts guru, espressoparts.com, espressoresource.com) for diagrams and parts information.  Boilers are never universal (each company and each machine has it's own design). Heating elements are almost never universal, but the ones in the two smaller brew boilers are probably the same.  The larger boiler will be for steam.  

We havew a few members with big machines like that, but they are the minority.  If you do some searching through here and at home-barista.com you may see some threads from folks who have rebuilt big machines.
