I have a Manitowc 850 Makes half dice cubes. I love it. Also an 600 Scotsman that makes "pillow" cubes

Get atleast a 600# pound "head". 220V AIR COOLED. Water cooled uses a LOT of water.
900 # bin. You don't have to buy them togeather. If you find a deal on a head you can retro fit it to just about any bin but the little ones.
Some I konw swear by Hozaki.

If you put it in the back of a truck you will neeed to think about leaving the doors open .

Ice bags are a pain and cost a lot. I like 20#ers. The ladies can handle them a lot easier.

If you have truck space for a merchandiser you can bag ahead.
I empty the ice bin on jumps.

I have a half-dice Manitowoc and a Hoshazaki and both are good machines the Hoshi is on the joint on the roof and it really produces I can't say enough about it, the big secret here is buying the biggest storage bin you can get for the machine.
The Manitowoc is in the truck and we have a 400# bin under it and the Manitowoc before that in our other stock truck was a 800# machine on a 800 # bin it was a 220 machine and had a precooler on it it was tough.
The 220 machines are the best but I bought two 110 machines because I can pull into a campground or anywhere there is a plugin and fill the bins and do a one day spot and move on if you have 220 available all the time that is the machine to use.

I see in the Tampa Tribune that there is a 1800 lb machine with a remote condenser I believe it said that it is a Manitowoc.
