    not a bad deal at all [​IMG] However I would wait and get a hovabator genesis it has a pre set temp and is well worth it. I have had very good luck with mine. I would get the one on ebay put the turner in a genesis and use this one as a hatcher.

    that's pretty cheap... cost of the turner by itself...

    i shopped around for styro bators and ebay does have the best deals...

    DH got mine from them and then bought a fan from someone else for $17. Both shipped quickly and once I learned how to use it works great. I hope to start breeding in a few weeks.

    The fan is easy to install and I highly recommend it.

    What is the difference between Hova-bator 1602N and Genesis 1588?

    Genesis has preset temps, comes with a fan and has a full viewing window instead of two medium windows.

    Because of the budget we went with the one you are looking at and added the fan. After both purchases and a trip to Ace to get longer bolts it cost us around 114 dollars.
