ECM Mechanika Profi IV + bits: £1100 // ECM S-Automatik 64: £350; £1350 for both

Recommended Posts

I recently got bitten by the upgrade bug so it's time to find a new loving home for these two:

 

2016 ECM Mechanika Profi IV: £1100

2016 ECM S-Automatik 64 grinder: £350

£1350 if bought together (which would be my preference)

 

These were bought new from BB in August 2016, so warranty has expired but they've both been good as gold. The machine had Brita tap water for the first year of its life, and has had Ashbeck ever since I moved house to an area with harder water. It's done roughly 2-4 shots a day. It's the rotary pump version and comes with plumb-in kit if you prefer to do that (I've only ever run it off the reservoir).

 

I've recently replaced the group gasket and fitted a IMS shower screen. I'm also throwing in a single, double and naked PF, ECM convex tamper, ECM tamping station and blind basket (see pics).

 

I already had a E37S when I bought the machine, but bought the S-Automatik in a package deal with the (ridiculous!) intention to use it as a secondary/decaf grinder which didn't really happen, so it's practically unused.

 

It's a great combo and it has to be said they make a very handsome pair. Great for someone looking to make a step up e.g. from a Classic or Silvia (as I did).

 

I don't have any of the original packaging, although probably have the manual and BB documentation somewhere if you need it. I don't want to ship this due to damage risk so collection only please, but I could probably meet you somewhere nearby. I'm based near Maidenhead, Berks.

 

I can do Paypal/Bank transfer.

 

Happy to answer any questions. Obviously all sales to be agreed on thread per forum rules.

 

(I should note I'm a long-time lurker but newbie poster so forum police, please rap me on the knuckles if I've done anything wrong here!)

I forgot to mention that there is a small mark on the top of the group where I once dropped a tamper... it's only about half a cm and purely cosmetic. See pics:

Hi all - resurrecting this now the technical issues with the thread seem to have been sorted out.  

This has been sitting around in our spare room while I've been enjoying my LMLM and my wife is, shall we say, expressing her strong desire that I find it a new home!  

So I will drop the price to £1000 for the pair if someone can take this off my hands.  Happy to answer any Qs.

Thanks. Given I’ve already taken a chunk off, was hoping for something a bit closer to the asking price.  Would you be able to collect?

I too am interested, am wondering if you have the original packaging? More for transport purposes, am able to collect but may be moving out the country in the not too distant future.
Thanks.

Hi,
With the gentle push from @coffeechap
Am interested, but I have recently gotten the same grinder as you have, but am willing to offer £700 for the mechanika alone (I do need to travel a bit down south to come pick it up)
I guess i can sort packaging later..

My preference is to sell both together ideally, but would take £900 for the machine (collected - and can include the tampers, baskets etc if you want them).  As I said, I've already taken quite a bit off so not prepared to go much lower than that.  Cheers

It could be this comment that may have confused me

Due to the increased demand the Mechanika IV Profi is also available with switchover function water tank/ direct water connection (WT-WC). Furthermore, various technical improvements in the model assure even lower noise performance.

and a feeling I had seen vibratory mentioned some where or the other. Re the comment on BB - is it switchable plumbed / tank.

Doh - I just looked at the pictures.

Problems for me. I wouldn't want the grinder but do fancy trying a decent HX machine. A trip down the M40 is tolerable.
