I guess the only concern would be how you would refridgerate it. Many commercial ones like that have a unit on the roof of the store and blowers in the cooler. Often it is fed 3-phase, and that's something the normal house doesn't have. Not to put a damper on it...cause for free it would surely be a sweet deal.

Holy deeply discounted stiff nipples Batman. That is a diabolically enticing cooler.

Well... I really would not be using it AS a cooler... I would use it as my brew room. I do have 220 out where it would go though... I think that is what it would run off of... Hell... Just to store my crap in would be awesome... And it comes in panels so I could easily get it home... Worst case scenario, is I get it and cant really use it and sell it or scrap it... Shoot... It would be a kickass fort for the boy. :-)

man that thing is huge... i bet it would cost an arm and a leg to run it..... my guess it would cost over $500-$1000 a month just to run it.... but if you have HUGER THAN HUGE parties than it would be the perfect fit, but wouldnt it look kind of out of place sitting in the middle of your yard?
