Default Red neck ice machine

You can always DIY! It isnt't fancy, but it makes ice and at a much colder temp.

Even the more commercial undercounter 250 to 350 pound ones you cannot get replacement parts for.

They may be branded Scotsman or other names they are made by the same foreign company and rebranded.

I sell commercial used equipment and am kinda wondering why those who like to put the machines in enclosed spaces like garages and such do not lean more to the remote units?

The head and bin are in the garage but the condenser is located outside much like the A/C units.

You have to run the extension freon lines like an A/C but it keeps the heat outside.

You see them a lot in convenience stores and gas stations.

I sell 5 regular self contained units compared to one remote unit so people like me sell them way cheaper.

If it is a situation that works for somebody long term it is way more efficient and cost effective without the heat build up.

Water cooled versions were mentioned but if one is on city water they are very expensive to run with the amount of water useage.

I saw the Red neck ice maker on another forum, I do plan on making 1 in the near future.
