I was at Costco today and I actually brought four ball locks kegs into the store. I was able to get all four ball locks on the floor! It was tight, but certainly possible. Time for the bar project to start!

I'd spend a few bucks more for the sams club 7.0 for $195 if you can. It is a solid unit that holds 4 kegs and a 5#, and the lid shuts without any issues. It's like it was made for us. I bought a $40 membership for it and got a $10 gift card making the membership $30. Worth it to test out sc for a year.

Any other comments on this freezer? I saw it on sale for about $160 and was wondering if I could fit 4 ball locks and 2 5 lb co2 bottles? Well one co2 and one beer gas...

Also, will it fit with the disconnected in place comfortably?

How much room is on the hump w/ 4 ball locks in there? Have a 10# CO2 tank thinking about one of these. Pic's would be great.

mattylerockey,
I brought 4 ball lock kegs and a #5 c02 in the store and they all fit inside with the lid shut. I bought the freezer, but later returned it because I decided I am going to build a custom bar with a larger chest freezer (kenmore 8.8, which has the same depth as the Haier 7.1))since I would have the space for one under the bar.

Here is mine finished. It is a squeeze but 4 ball locks will fit on the floor. I have a #20 so it sits outside. Now I need another freezer for fermenting, anyone have any suggestions on a freezer that will fit two 6.5 on the floor?

Just reporting that these are still sold by Costco for $175. They don't appear to be on the site, but most stores have them, I picked up one last night.
