An A-Grade machine is in "as new" condition. It is a machine that has been returned to Brother as incorrectly ordered, not required (eg. un-opened machines returned in bulk from a "sale or return" deal) or the unit may have failed on arrival in which case the failed part is replaced by Brother. A full 12 months warranty is included. The included consumables may have been partially used, although are often still sealed. (A-Grades still qualify for most cashback and free warranty promotions, but check the individual promotions terms and conditions to be sure)
If this item is marked as out of stock, then it is best not to place an order as, due to the nature of the product, we do not know when (or if) more stock will become available.
Notes on A3 Printing: This is primarily an A4 machine with some A3 capability. The 250 page tray can be extended for A3 paper, and the bypass tray can also take 1 sheet of A3 at a time. However, duplex / scanning / copying / faxing are not available with A3 paper on this machine.
