    Kold Draft Icer

    I am doing a job that spec'ed a Kold Draft 1000lb a day Ice Maker. Its been 20 years or more since I had the pleasure of working on a Kold Draft.They kinda went out of production way back when. Anyone use them, work on them?

    I've got 3 out here. (In an old KG Brown dispenser) Still chugging along.

    See if you can spec the Hoshizaki IM500***. I have one of those and much nicer machine.

    At least it would be easier to get tech support and parts

    They still make Kold Draft. I had a warranty call on a new one a while back.

    We sold one, its been a very reliable machine. No problems so far except for a stuck bin control.

    I've never been able to get someone at Kold Draft tech support while one a job.

    If they call back it's next day or two if at all.

    Kold Draft's are a marvel of modern engineering. Take the front cover off and let the show begin.
