Ever hear of this oven?

I have one of those “friend of a friend” situations, and his buddy had a shop for a couple of years before being elected to a public office and he found holding onto the shop incompatible with his “day job”. He has some very interesting prices on his “2 year old” gear…I’m told the oven is a Wolf model 3255. I can’t find anything on Wolf pizza ovens by Google.

Anyone heard of them and/or can give me a heads up on them?

I wonder if it is the same Wolf that makes ranges and chargrills? They can be found at www.wolfrange.com , I hope this helps.

Thanks Magoo…yeah, that’s the only place I could fine remotely possible. I’ve got the guy’s number and will try to get ahold of him this weekend. The way it’s been told to me his equipment is a conveyor (thus the 3255 I’m sure), and has just a little over 2 years of usage. The price I was told for “a garage full of stuff” would be very hard to pass up unless of course, it’s junk!

Do you have any pictures? If I had to make an uneducated guess as to what this oven is, I would imagine it is an E-flow oven designed by Ron Wolfe from Wolfe Electric or possibly an XLT oven designed by the same guy. If you can get a picture of the oven I would guess that I could recognize it if it is one of these and give you a good review of it as I have used both models. George Mills should also be able you a bit as he works with and sells Rons ovens.

I googled pizza oven 3255. The number looked familiar. I though it was a MM, but the only thing that came up was a bofi or Lincoln 3255 conveyor.

Either way, you need to go look at the stuff before even thinking about it.

HI Deacon:

I think Paul is correct. The oven is most probably An XLT 3255. If it is only two years old it could be a very good buy.

If you can get the serial number I can determine the age for you.

If you need to see an XLT for comparison to what is being offered you can see them at my web site.

Thanks guys. Yep, getting more detailed info is certainly the next step. When they came back with “Wolf 3255” the first thing I thought of as well was, hmm…could they mean a XLT3255?

I’m getting closer to breaking this thing open one way or the other, sometimes a dream has to be acted on!

I’ve used a LOT of the expected ratios and percentages, I’ve got fairly extensive business mgt. experience so I think I have handle on expenses to be considered. With all I’ve come up with so far, a decent shop “ought to” fly here. My start-up costs will determine whether I’m “go or no go” at this point.
