    Screenshot_2018-03-11-23-52-03.png Screenshot_2018-03-11-23-52-03.png I have an opportunity to maybe purchase a Marsh Rolex incubator that's local to me. I tried searching the forums and did a brief internet search, but didn't find much. Any reviews out there for this particular brand? I currently have a Styrofoam bator now (Hovabator) and would love to invest in a higher quality unit.

    The brand is considered a Cadillac among incubators. Usually goes for over 150. Closer to 200. It is made by Lyon and called a Marsh Roll-X. See net and youtube for more info.

    Is this bator a Roll-X or a Roll-X2 (RX2).
    There's a difference in price.

    Well , obviously it's been many years since I have checked out the price of this incubator. Whew! I am behind the times on this one!
    Thanks for the price update.

    There a "eBay"of surplus lab equipment called www.labx.com I think I saw one there years ago. Gone now obviously but maybe take a new look. Most all the incubators there are for growing cultures, not eggs, but every once and a while a poultry incubator shows up.
