    There is one for sale on Craigslist for $200.00 but I can't find a reference to it anywhere on the net. Anybody know anything about it? 300 egg capacity. I wonder if the seller meant 1202 instead of 1212.

    I have type of the GQF incubators.. 1202 is one model will check think 1212 is just a 220 volt model or maybe a older Ostrich incubator , pic would help....200 would be a good price ..not sure were you are located ...



    Yes double check with them........from what i know its a 1202 does it have 3 setting tray and 1 hatching tray...110 volt then 1202 . have not see 1212...1250 is a hatcher

    I have an older 1202 and love it. $200.00 dollars is a good deal. Check the seal around the door. I had 2 Sportsman and the seal went on the other one. I sold it cheep as the buyer said they would replace the seal. It does have a wafer thermostat which works ok but I did put a clear door on mine and replaced the wafer thermostat with a digital thermostat. The wafer thermostat did fluctuate more than the digital which is right on. I used to have it sitting on the floor but it became a pain as I do staggered hatches so now I have it up on a table which is much better. It works great.

    Before I changed the thermostat.

    I would be on my way to get it. You don't get much for $200 now days. I know its a deal if its in good shape

    Quote:I agree... I went to their website also and didn't see a 1212 listed. I think it is a 1202. I definitely would go and look at it. $200. is a very good deal. You could probably sell it for $300. I sold my other 1202 (with a deteriorating door gasket but we did put a digital thermostat in it) for $350.
