Monster of a machine with a good many aluminum parts to make it weigh less , looks cool but haven’t seen many around.

It's definitely a heavy beast. Still in pretty decent shape. Guess not so collectible cuz of weight tho.

And what is your question besides that of the stated girth & weight of the beast?  smile

Wasnt sure how collectible they were. I picked one up along with a mills 45 in a group purchase. They seem to be the oldest out of the bunch. Both appear to be complete.

They are a bit too large for most folks, but I’ve sold some odd ball machines as nostalgic props to some retro themed restaurants and the like.  And there’s often a collector who’s attracted to odd & unique machines.   smile

        I remember getting a request from a store owner once, looking for just an antique Coke machine shell.

        He wanted to mount his ATM machine in it.  biggrin
