Mani-whak is pretty good exept when you have to fill those warranty long claim form.
Hoshin-Daki is pretty good if you have a good filter to it.But It takes too long to clean. and they (san antonio branch) sell the parts to anybody who walks in. Cant sell them because you cant outbid (san antonio branch)them because they sell it them self.
Ice on matic is pretty good now there back to mechanical and no board machine ( thank god they fired those guys who design their electronic boards.)
Scott-man well they suck machine dont purge properlly.
cornellious disposable machine only good for one year if it last that long.
Voight machine well they RULE the ice machine industry.
Good post and good points...off the subject, I was in your town a year ago and thought it was great. You guys got some beautiful, BEAUTIFUL Mexican women down there....I bet the summers are a real SOB though.

When Manitowoc came out with the Q-Series design with batch feed for water supply, the original Horton valves (the blue ones) had a horrendous failure rate. We were told that there was a manufacturing problem involving the lubricant used.....or some such line of BS. These valves would typically stick open and you arrived at the job to find water streaming into the bin. Sometimes the valve's top seal would rupture and water would be peeing out onto the floor. Change out the valve under warranty and chances were you'd be back in short order to do it again.......until they came out with the Invensys valves (the yellow ones).
They faired much better, but I still have significant numbers fail. Mani doesn't offer a rebuild kit like they have for their dump valves or do they recommend attempting to clean or otherwise service the valve. Just replace it. I simply don't wish to chance a freebie callback for such an easy, quick and relatively cheap fix.
