    I'm sure someone will snatch this up.

    This one is larger than the Zipper Jr. right?

    What is the size of it?

    Now Pete you know some of these guys might not like you making a profit on anything you bought recently.

    So the junior is more practical ?
    Curious to know why the jr is worth selling the larger model.

    I don't see anything wrong with him selling it at a higher price. Just because he got the great deal does not mean everyone should as well. Besides even at $1000 it's a great deal

    It's great! But I was really trying to find a Zipper Jr.... after I bought the zipper Joe put his is for sale... So I bought it! The zipper is great! but my wife was having a hard time pushing it...I didn't have trouble at all with it as matter of fact if it doesn't sell then I'll just save it for when i get another van....

    I like watching capitalism at its finest.

    If he can make a buck for being smart and someone finds it to be value then more power to him.

    If its impractical then capitalism will hold him to those parameters.

    Don't really care if someone thinks I should sell for what I paid for it..... I shouldn't have shared what I paid for for it..My bad on that...

    The Jr will be more practical as far as weight. My wife likes to clean carpet and she loves using the machines... This Zipper is a little on heavy side for her she weighs 110 lbs and 5'2 and were using the Everest 650 so It has a ton of suction....Not hard for me to push though.

    I would just like to congratulate you on having a wife that "likes to clean carpet and likes using the machines". Sounds like she is a keeper, you better take good care of her.

    $1,000 is a pretty reasonable price.

    Are they still making these things?

    I know that people loved them and raved about them. Never used one but have seen the videos.

    Yes they still make the zipper.... This model has been replaced with the Zipper Jr.... But this thing is build high Quality to last for years.... I think they can't be sold till some time in 2014 due to rights.... I think... but don't quote me on that.... It's just what guys are saying.

    Rock on for being a capitalist! You found a great deal, put some work into it and now want to sell it to better your family and business. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    Same exact thing as flipping a house. My brother bought a foreclosed house 2800 sq feet with a in ground pool. He has gutted almost all of it, new HVAC, water lines, bathrooms, travertine kitchen floors, granite counter tops, refinished hardwood floors, made the basement from a non living space to a amazing living space. He paid $55k for it and will see it for $280k. He has done the majority of the work himself over the last two years and he has two kids with one on the way. Nothing working with making a profit if you are at the right place at the right time.

    So if I got lucky and won a brand new car are you trying to tell me that I should give it away because I didn't pay full price for it? The mentality of some people just floors me sometimes.

    I would of sold it for more then a $1000 as you can not even buy these. The rights were sold to a franchise for 3 years. Supply and demand, it's a pretty good concept when you go to price something.

    How often in this business do we actually make a profit on cleaning equipment we sell? Almost never, so don't bash a guy when he has that chance to make a couple hundred bucks on something he got a great deal on. Good for you Pete, I hope the Zipper Jr. you bought from me meets all your expectations. It is a great tool.
