12 Kilo Probat L12 - 1969 Model

A real vintage... You don't see many of these come by!


Alright, coffee aficionados, feast your eyes on this vintage beauty - the 12 Kilo Probat L12 Roaster made over 50 years ago! This 12k marvel has seen some roasting action and has stories to tell.

This roaster is in "Good" condition. It's got that charming vintage vibe, but like any experienced soul, it comes with a few quirks. It's fully operational, but let's just say it's got a bit of character. Specifically, it has a loose and misfiring pilot that needs a little TLC, and a loose drop-shoot handle as well, but nothing a skilled roaster can't handle. Oh, and its cooling tray lever switch is a little lazy, so you'll have to set it manually. It's got personality, alright!

Last used August of 2023, this bad boy has a history - 7.5 years of roasting magic with the current owner! It's got some mileage, but you know what they say - age is just a number! As for its service history, it's been given some love. New bearings and a fresh drive chain have been put in, so it's got some pep in its step.

But wait, there's more! It's got a Data Log Connection for Cropster or Artisan meaning this still roaster knows how to stay connected! And guess what... It also comes with some extra temperature probes and exhaust vent piping if you ever need them!

So, if you're looking for a vintage charmer with a sprinkle of sass and a whole lot of roasting history, the Probat L12 from 1969 is your ticket to coffee greatness. Grab it before it's gone, and let's roast like it's the swinging '60s all over again!
