Yes,thats a Wolf commercial--"business" range alright!BUT-can your floors handle the weight?Do the building codes in your area allow you to use that range in a residence?Can your neighboring kitchen furniture and range hood handle the high heat?And can the gas company supply you the gas needed to run this in your home?Probably from someone that couldn't meet those things-and the opening price of 99 cents!!Its a bargain if you can get it and have the above needs for it!Not for the "cook" that just heats canned soup or frozen pizzas!

Being this is a real commercial model, it's meant for a commercial (restaurant) kitchen.    It has no insulation at all and would require at least a 4 inch clearance gap all the way around it.   It cannot be installed right next to cabinets, etc like a residential model.

 

Additionally, there is the continuous burning pilot lights for each burner and the (most likely) 3/4" gas line requirement.

The comments about this Wolf range are very true. So many appliances designed for restaurant kitchens are not suitable for home use. I had friends who purchased a very pricey True brand commercial refrigerator for their kitchen. The thing made more noise than a freight train. They sold it at a substantial loss.

True indeed.

I looked at a commercial gas range for my remodel last year. The ventilation requirement alone was enough of a deal breaker for me. Some things are better left to the restaurants, I guess.

An hour left and still just one bid.  It will be interesting to see if there's a sniping frenzy at the last minute.

 

I noticed in the pictures that there's a gap on both sides.  That was my first thought about a commercial range.  I have just the right amount of room, including gaps, but that is way too much stove for me and I almost never have a need for a griddle, plus my kitchen can already get too hot as it is.

Such a deal

It went for $1.04 as a result of a five cent snipe.

 

Could require a few hundred times that in parts, repairs, and any accommodations required in its new location.

A Wolf Range for Little More Than One Dollar

How sweet!

Apparently Wolf sold these units as "residential" and it looks as if the thing was in a home kitchen....

Seems these models came out around 1990. As for the cheap selling price well it is the same as with any other large appliance vintage or no. It comes down to a local market unless you have someone to properly disconnect/prepare, crate, collect and ship the thing. That range isn't exactly light and thus am sure the small market for such "commercial" device is made more so but the fact for the cost of shipping and what not you can purchase something locally.

4 inch clearance gap all the way around it.

Looking at the pictures in the auction listing it was installed with said gaps on sides and thus probably top and back as well. It certainly is high enough off the floor as well.

My friend Brenda got a Garland commercial gas range for her new kitchen back in the early 80's. She pretty much had to build the entire kitchen to accomodate it. A commercial hood vent system had to be installed, and cabinets could come no closer than a foot to either side of it. Floors and wall behind had to be of a non-combustible material (she used ceramic tile over cement board). Kitchen turned out beautiful, and cost a boatload of money, even back then. She said she did like the stove really well.
