    Hi,

    We used to sell quite a few pellet stoves back in the day (90's early 2000's). Whitfield mainly, but the last year or two we also carried the Traeger line. We sold one GBU70 and had a GBU130 for demo.

    I'm several years removed from this business now and have a still have this Traeger 130 kicking around. It was probably only used for about a week. However, it was moved a lot and got banged up and was also left outside and got wet. I have it in my garage as I was going to use it to heat my house but it's just way too much heat.

    Let me be clear it needs work. I had started to take off the fans and motors and gaskets and was going to rebuild it but a new baby has put a stop to that thought. I'm just wondering if there would be any interest in it by anyone or if I should just hang on to it and fix it up someday to heat a garage or something. I see that new they are pretty pricey and I think when I added up the cost on all the replacement parts that $750 - $1000 would replace most of the important parts (most motors are ok, but it needs the auger gearboxes, the control panel should be ok but I considered replacement anyway). I have a parts price list if anyone is interested.

    Anyway just throwing that out there and wondering what it may be worth?

    If I can sell it then I may buy a pellet stove and will have lots of questions as I see I can no longer buy a beloved Advantage 2 anymore.
