After watching all you guys make your great equipment scores, I finally got one too!

I was talking to our maintenance guy at work and told him I had seen a nice cooler in our warehouse that I wanted to buy. He said that it was spoken for but why didn't I take the Coke cooler that was in his way at the little warehouse. He said it worked and was in good shape but Coke didn't want it back and none of our stores wanted it either.

As soon as I could arrange, I asked our CFO if I could have it. He hymned and hawed about charging me (he is an bean counter after all) but I pointed out that we were paying to store equipment than no one else wanted and we would have to pay to toss it. He laughed and said I was welcome to it.

It was used for less than a year and very clean. It's an industrial Beverage Air. I cleaned the compressor and turned it on and it took about 20 minutes to get the temperature down to 37. We are pretty stoked about it.

Free and delivered to my back door!
