    used?

    A new 1602 is about $50. Turners run about $46 new. GQF has raised their prices this year.

    If it has been used alot I would not spend too much on it.

    $126 for a new Genesis 1588.

    Even hand turning until you can afford the turner is a better deal than that one. Ouch.

    If you got a turner and that included shipping it's not to bad of a deal. I just hate wafers.

    Save up for the 1588. I just sold 3 and have goose eggs in another one since I got my Dickey.

    it's on My Xmas list for this year-Can't spend any money on another purchase of chicken supplies like that considering the DH spent close to 500$ on a pimped out chicken coop-the walls are going up today!!!!

    I was lucky enough to get a unused bator for 40. Not a lot of savings but 10 less then from the stores. I have had no problem with the temperature.
    [​IMG] I need a second one so I am going to probably get a new one with a turner. Ebay is often selling higher then the Rural King around here.
