    You forgot to include the asking price. Welcome to the forum!

    OOPPS!!

    They are asking $3000. But it is a private sale so they may take less.

    Thanks

    At this point I doubt they would take less, they most likely get what they are asking.

    Well I am going to phone and see if it is still available. Was wondering if $3000 is reasonable for a 2yr old Whitfield. Do not know what new ones are priced at presently.

    Best call around to get an idea, most likely at this time the will quote you the retail price, since the can get it.

    I think a consideration at this point is availability of parts and service for the stove. Lennox owns Whitfield now and I know that the dealers in this area all quit selling or servicing them.
