Default Holy Lord!! 7.0 GE chest freezers @ HD for $170?!?!

I just happened to check their site and it is coming up with this....

http://www.homedepot.com/Appliances-Refrigerators-Freezers-Freezers/h_d1/N-5yc1vZasjrZ66xgy/h_d2/Navigation?&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&langId=-1&omni=p_$100%20-%20200

If my eyes are correct they are selling the 7.0 for $11 LESS than the 5.0 unit.
I may snag one of these at this price.

I'm going to stop by HD tonight and see if they will honor the price in store.
I just wanted to share the find.

Take a tape measure with you and get us some inside dimensions on that one. If you can fit 4 kegs in there I might have a new lagering vessel on my wish list.

It looks like it might just be possible to get four kegs in there if you squeezed 'em in tight. And maybe one more on the hump, with a collar.

That's the pic I was using for comparison. It' looks like you can fit 3 in without a collar and maybe 4 with a collar?
I'm going to go check this out at my local HD after work today. I'll let everyone know what I find out. I'm taking cardboard cut outs with me.

I'm heading out tomorrow to pick one up... I'm glad I waited a week to get it. I was ready to pull the trigger last week and my cheapness has payed off

Oh, and since I was in the market for this I have been doing a bunch of research on this freezer and it looks like it will fit 4 kegs and a 5# tank as long as you build a collar. Also please note that the OP uses a 10# and that is why he can only fit 3 with the tank.

This is 3 pin-locks and 1 ball-lock so 4 ball locks should fit easily. This height is the only concern if you are not wanting to build a collar. I have a ball-lock keg that has been converted to pin-lock, and with the pin-lock disconnect it is about 3/4 of an inch too tall. So, the ball-locks w/ disconnects may fit, but it would be very very close. The pin locks fit fine.


This is 3 pin-locks and my 10lb CO2 tank.


Here are just a couple more shots so you can see the height problem.

Pin lock connects on ball lock size keg.

I have this same one and you can fit 4 cornies in it but it is a major PITA.

I went to hd and sized this up and think I can fit 2 -6.5g carboys in it or at least 1 - 6.5g and 1 - 6g
