    Passed by these beasts on an old shopping center now serving as an indoor flea market.







    Probably a safe bet that most of these units on this roof haven't ran in years.



    Nice flue cap retainer.



    Guess someone couldn't be bothered to at least put the panel back on.

    The Melco's will outlast anything built today.

    Any idea how old those might be? I'm not familiar with Melco. I think this shopping center was built in the 60's.

    I have one Melco that I service and it does still do a good job. My boss installed that machine in 1973.

    I still Service 3 rooftop Melco units. They are from the mid 60's. I ran the numbers on mine and they where manufactured in 1973.
