Topic: Rancilio commercial grinder question (4 msgs / 102 lines)
1) From: Bill Morgan
I have a line on a used Rancilio grinder.  From the poor picture all I can
tell is that it looks like an MD 40 and isn't especially clean.
On Rancilio's web site the MD 40 looks to have similar specs to the Rocky.
Is that the case, or is it better burrs/mechanism?
If it's equivalent to a well-used Rocky and needs burrs and maybe other
work, then the price isn't good enough to be worth the travel to pick it up,
but if it's a much better mechanism than Rocky it might be worth while.
Anybody know about this beast?
Thanks,
Bill

Kind of a Rocky on steroids.  Depends on the price and how much work  
you'd have to put into it, but new it costs almost about as much as a  
Mazzer Mini, Anfim or Macap M4 and is rated lower by most sites.

Thanks, Sandy.  I just heard back from the vendor: it's a year-old MD 50 ST,
so that makes it a stronger candidate and more worth the price.
And when it rains, it pours!  Another channel just turned up an MD 50 AT for
even less.  Queries about condition pending on that one.
Looks like it may finally be time for me to get a real grinder!
Hopefully,
Bill
