    yes. good deal. i gave 110.00 for mine and didnt get the quail trays or the thermometer. i did get the turner. i would also recomend getting the fan for 10.00 maintains the temp better, distributes the heat in the bator more no hot spots. chicks dry faster to. after my third hatch i installed the fan and i wouldnt have a bator without one.

    I purchased the same setup and loved it. Another consideration is that they have a GREAT resale value. When I used mine a few times I decided to sell it, beings that I didn't want to store it, and I listed it on ebay and got all my money back. [​IMG]

    Keep checking ebay, i saw the exact same item listing for about $20 cheaper and the shipping was cheaper too. It was also a buy it now so no chance of having someone bid it up. There are dozens of listings for the 1602N with the 1611 turner.

    Good luck.

    He did say they would put the fan in for me for $10.00. But didn't say how much the fan was.

    I think I'll keep looking I'm in no hurry. I hope. LOL
