This unit was removed from a working lab where it was used quite often, although it still operates flawlessly and looks like it is new. The automatic lid opening feature is not working on this unit but it can easily be opened through the release hole on the right side of the unit with a paper clip. Other than that, it develops good vacuum, heats up and spins at full speed with no problems. To buy this unit would cost over $5500 new, so this is a good deal at this price. We back this unit with our no-hassle 30-day money-back guarantee and will pay all shipping should you decide to return it.
Note: Lid must be released manually through pushpin hole on right side of unit. No other defects.
