Haier 7.1 cu ft freezer for $175 at Costco
 
Noticed that my Costco (East Wenatchee, WA) is selling 7.1 Haier chest freezers for $175 (hcm071lc). Would be worth checking out if you are in the market. They look pretty much like the GE 7.0's and have the exact same outside measurements. I'll snag a measurement of the inside next time I'm in (unless I give it a new home for a keezer project at which point pics will follow :ban:).

Seems like a good deal, $15 less than the GE. But, Sam's Club will deliver to your door for free!

Wow! That's a killer deal for guys that don't have a pickup.

I saw the HCM071LC as well. Do freezers always allow a warm enough temp for beer? I mean, I like my beer cold but not frozen. . . Costco will take it back, but it's a big thing to lug.

You'll need to purchase a temperature controller. Ranco and Johnson are popular brands.

I was looking at those yesterday.

It looked like it will hold 4 ball locks in the bottom, and one or two on the hump.

Possibly the kegs on the bottom will fit without a collar.

Next time I go, I'll take a measuring tape and some 9" cardboard circles.

ETA: I went on over to Costco and measured it:

Haier 7.1 cf Chest Freezer
37"w x 23"d x 33"t

27" deep (bottom)
17.5" deep (hump)

3 kegs on bottom (no collar), 1 on hump (with collar). May fit 3 gallon on hump without collar.

Dang! I was really hopping to be able to fit four like the GE 7 cu. ft's. Thanks for postin' up the measurements though.

Here is what it looks like with 9" measuring circles:

Any chance I'd be able to fit a 6.5 gallon carboy and 2 corneys? From the looks of the picture I doubt it, but has anyone tried?

Anyone?

I know this thread is old, but yes you can fit two corneys and a 6.5 fermentor in there with easy.
