Pictures. People try to sell things on craigslist without pictures. You can, but you are going to give it away. If you can't publish a photo it ain't worth much.

I paid $1600 for a used 32 frame dadant but it has an automatic advance box and that is probably worth half the package I would guess. Does the gearbox step up speed by itself? Do you have to have it in a pit or is it a center drain that needs to be over a sump.

I believe you have to shift it manual, yes it is in a pit probably 8ft long 4ft wide and 5 or so deep.
