I'm guessing here - Pepsi & Coke (and all the other smaller soda distributors) - when they are changing over to syrup in a bag system, they end up with a ton of used, but serviceable, kegs. They're not interested in selling them 1-2 or even 10 at a time and just want to dump them... At the same time there are companies in the market that sell and set up new & used dispensing equipment.
Guy from Pepsi: Hey, we've got a couple hundred kegs we're looking to get rid of, are you interested?
Guy from McEver: (http://www.mceverdistrib.com/):
Yeah, I know I can sell them for $40 each, I'll pay you $25 each for them.
Guy from Pepsi: ok
Pretty much how a sale takes place.
