All chapters received the following from the Trust Department at City National. If you are growing macadamia nuts, it might be worth investigating. I have more photos available to anyone interested. The deceased was a long time life member of CRFG.
We manage the estate of an exotic fruit and nut hobbyist who passed away in 2017. This gentleman planted an extensive orchard on his property, including several dozen macadamia nut trees. The property is now in escrow and will be sold within the next few weeks, so we are hoping to sell a Shaw Macadamia Nut Cracker/Sorter and a Husker (unknown manufacturer). The cracker/sorter were purchased new from Mr. Shaw in November 2011 and were used for less than six years, so they are in very good condition. The machines have not had any maintenance for the past two years, but my orchard manager has used them occasionally and they do work as expected.
We are removing all of the personal property at this time, and would prefer that these machines go to someone who could use them rather than having them dismantled and disposed of as garbage. The machines are located in the Mountaingate community in West Los Angeles, west of the 405 and between the Skirball Center and the Getty Center. The machines would need to be picked up one day next week (October 22-25), as we cannot deliver or pack and ship them.
The purchase price is negotiable. I will be working away from the office tomorrow and all of next week, so please call my cell at (818) 631-6790 if you have any questions.
