Hey all,
My family is in need of a zero clearance wood stove. We cant afford new, but we came across this used 2007 quadrafire 7100 zc. I've talked to the seller who says it's in good shape with a few cosmetic issues. I've seen pictures. They are asking $1000 OBO. Considering this is a 13 year old stove, what would be considered a fair price for this unit assuming it is infact in good working order with no issues. I just don't have the knowledge for this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It costs a fair amount to install a zc fireplace. This is not like a freestanding stove. If that is what you are considering I'd pass and keep looking.

I may interested with it if you have decided to pass it - we are looking building a new home and like the specs. Can you pm me?
