just drink faster

Talking

I have a old DD frig outside just for beer,the ice maker didn't work, I bought a new kit around 40.00 and fix it, On freezer side I took out everything except the ice maker and one shelf, I put a new kitchen garbage can to catch all the ice,I ran a water hose to it, they make a adapter that does this, its fills it about 4-5 days, not real fast but when I don't need it I bag it ,put it below on the bottom,its half moon stuff.

Also someone gave me a Scottsman style, makes the small square cubes,about 40lbs? it keeps up pretty good, I took the level sensor and bent it up so it hold a little more now.

the sq ice melts faster that the half moon stuff.

Also bought the kit sump pump/humidifier pump around 45.00,dump it into the washing machine drain

I beg to differ

IMHO Hoshizaki is the way to go.This is the unit i sell to 99% of the customers that buy Ice makers with no problems to date and its been 10 years since i started this business.

My Hoshizaki is three or four years old, and has been flawless.

We have an undercounter Scotsman in our wetbar.
I've heard they are the best. But ours sucks.
(keep in mind it's also 12 years old)

Were remodeling the kitchen/wetbar and in the market for a new one and it seems like a crapshoot to me.
All have to check out that hoshimoto unit.

I just recommend that you stay away from the Whirlpool made units. Not looking to start any fights. I am just going off of what are service guys work on the most and from what my customers are replacing and why. Just my .02
