Hasler IM5000 Mail Machine MA1526002170. Machine includes dynamic scale MS1528002480, mix mail feeder MF1527003462, and Conveyer stacker F151700. The high-capacity feeder handles heavy stacks of assorted size mail and pieces up to .8” thick. Machine will seal nested and non-nested letters. Machine has sensors that will measure and weigh envelopes and flats and print the appropriate amount of postage.

The large Monitor is not included. This machine has an existing cartridge, and has one new in box (unopened) red ink cartridge that will be included. Please note this machine breaks down into modules. The machine will be disassembled and in four pieces. Be advised, the mail meter has been removed. The new user will have to contact a local Neopost/Quadient vendor to reassemble the machine, lease a new meter, printer, and external scale for large packages if need be. Once installed the meter will be internet-connected with the ability to down load new postal rates and updates.

This machine was working when taken out of service in May of 2020. The machine is 4 ½ years old and has had regular maintenance.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Hi. When I do a search online, I see this entire machine being called a "postage meter" but you state the meter has been removed. Do you mean the scale? Or is the "meter" a 5th section that connects inline? Photos of other IM5000 units I find all have the same four modules, so what's missing on this one other than a scale? Thanks. (6/21/20 2:24 AM)
A: The postage meter has been removed. The postage meter tracks the money you have on your account with the USPS. Postage meters are assigned to the customer and are always removed when a mail machine is taken out of commission. That way any excess money can be refunded to the customer or transferred onto a new machine. The postage meters are property of the USPS and are leased. If you would like to purchase this machine you would need to contact a Hassler/Neopost/Quadient dealer in your area to have a postage meter unique to you as a customer installed. You would send in money to the USPS and you would download the money onto your meter. This machine has internal weigh on the way scales, so as the mail passes through the mail is weighed individually and postage is applied. It does not have an external scale for packages. Those are leased through your local Quadient dealer. Again, you would have to contact a dealer to lease the scale and meter through them. (6/22/20 8:42 AM)
