Posted Mon Dec 17, 2012, 11:46am Subject: Brewtus Expobar IV **Sold**
Fairly new Expbar Brewtus IV espresso machine. Owned for about a year an a half. This is a the vibratory model that's plummable. Currently using with reservoir. Kept clean and inmacculate. Comes with one portafilter, several baskets and backflush disk and the plumb kit. There's many technical specs to this machines so for more details go to the page of the company I bought it from ( http://www.wholelattelove.com/Expobar/exbrew_4p.cfm ). Not really wishing to ship because it's about 61 lbs and any packaging would easily bring that up that weight to around 70 lbs and shipping cost might be huge, but if you really want, it I'll do it. I'm located 5 minutes east of O'Hare airport (Harwood Height 60706). Asking $1300.00. Almost $2000.00 new!!. Some of the light segments from the PID have burned out(two segments to be exact). I was told the new unit is $235.00 althought I find this an aesthetic problem as the PID works perfectly. I've tried the pictures at this site and I have to reduce the size so much that the resolution suffers too much. For pics go to this ad. Thanks for looking.

Same here. I shipped my QM Andreja Premium (to myself during a move) from Seattle all the way to Fort Lauderdale, FL. That's basically as far as you can go in the lower 48 and it cost $60 via FedEx. This was all with the original double box packing as well.

Hey there, Pardon me if this question is somewhat out of line, but I saw your machine and was initially interested. However, I did see that you had been asking questions on HB about your machine having problems with the drain valve leaking when you first purchased it.
Did you get this resolved, or is this still an issue with this machine? Thanks for any info you can provide...it seemed like pertinent information on the history of this machine for sale. If it is fixed, than this seems like a terrific deal to consider....I figured other perspective buyers may have been scared away if they found this on their own, and with your clarification they may be allayed of any fears.
