I have the Manitowoc 600 lb machine with a huge storage bin. The machine works great and has been problem free. They come with a 3 year warranty. Only problem I have is being in a small storage shed in the summer it gets hot and the machine does not like it. I had to cut a 12"x12" holes in the wall and install a vinyl vent with a fan on the other side blowing fresh outside air directly in to the back of the machine, this made it run like a champ. Air cooled is the way to go unless you want a huge water bill. The Manotowic produces cubed ice. It does not pack as well as the half moon shaped ice that the Hozizaki produces. Thats the only reason I would switch brands for my next machine.
