I just upgraded to a Rocket R58. This has been my daily machine for a long time. In good working condition. Can be plumbed in or used with water reservoir. I've used both ways. The water reservoir is yellowed and crazed. Holds water but should probably be replaced at some point. I removed the low level float at some point, as it wasn't floating any longer. The sensor works though. I believe my work-around was to put a magnet next to the sensor so that it always thought there was water in it. Please see pics and ask questions...SEE VIDEO AT END OF PICS! pics taken in harshest light possible...video is more realistic.

Has red silicone head gasket. Also comes with a single and blind basket (not pictured). Shower screen was replaced ~5 years ago and is also clean/not clogged. Machine was used primarily in new york city. Water was filtered through a 5 micron particulate filter and then an activated charcoal filter.

Asking was $800, now $700 + shipping or pick up in Manhattan, NYC

I've had a few questions about the Astoria machine I'm selling, so I thought I'd take a video so you can see and hear it if interested.
Enjoy -
