I had something similar a couple of months ago, sold a powered grass collector off a ride-on mower which usually go for around the 50 mark, 2 bidders pushed it to nearly 140!, the winner had 1 feedback so I thought the worst, but he paid within a few minutes of the auction ending. As a bonus, I'd only paid 275 for the mower and collector so got half my money back for the unwanted collector

Used to be mine that pump, seems to have lost the brass cover I made for the wick oilers.

When I was looking at pumps a couple of years ago, a working H3 would have gone for around 200. So yes, this seems very expensive.

I would have thought a H3 would have been less then that, the H2 and H1 are a bit more of a manageable size and tend to bring more, thought I sold a H1 for what I paid for it 60 oh and a tenner for the belt iirc.

Pumps are strange things to value Steve, as you say the smaller more manageable ones tend to make better money than the large heavy ones. I sold a largish Pullen pump for 70 and a far more common Lister Domestic can often make that sort of money.

Yes, wasn't that the one the Acorn Top used to run?

Yea it is a odd business, I don't aim to make money/profit on what I buy and sell, just happy to break even.

Sure was, Ollie, when the Compactum pump came along I sold the Drake & Fletcher then put the appletop & that onto the trolley they were both on as it looks more like the pumpset that Petters used to market.

Yes, I did see the signs you had made up at Orsett with the image on it. It does looks the part.
