Has anyone bought these used kegs from this company? Are they in good condition and worth the price?

I have one, great condition, legal, well constructed. Worth the price? Well, that is up to you. For me the one stop shopping, not having to fabricate, find a welder etc. was worth it to me.

I don't like the placement of the thermometers on the pre made keggles.

For me, NO. I'll have to find the link but, on here just the other day there was brand new kegs for 136. Not too sure of your specific mind set but for me, I would buy brand new. That is a 1-20? price too. You don't need to buy 10.

Having said that, I don't have an issue with getting quality work done. How is that for you?

When you factor in shipping you are better off buying a brand new 15 gallon Stainless pot from http://www.waresdirect.com/products/...al/60-Qt168824 or other vendor.

I bought legit kegs from a brewery for $30 each.

cool website prices are good. Wish they showed the sizes and specs of the kegs though.

I was going to go this route, but I dont like how wide those 60 qt pots are. Plus I like the durability of kegs.
