Picked up a little kegerator off CL this morning. It is almost new (no dust in the coils even), and came with a full 5lb CO2 bottle and regulator.

Holds two 5 gallon kegs, easy. A little work and it will hold 3 or 4.





Cost: $150

This is a good quality score. Usually something that cheap would have no co2 with it, it'll have stickers all over it, and complete crud on the inside.

I hope it works well as a plug and go.

I cleaned it up and plugged it in. In the 100*F garage, it is getting cold already.

Congrats! I just stopped by my lhbs and they had a Sanyo two tap tower kegerator that one of the owners just built. Brand new and he wanted $325 for it so I bought it. This is my first kegerator and I thought that was a pretty good price for a brand new multi-tap kegerator. It holds two corny kegs and he put a little bungie cord in the back so the CO2 tank fits snuggly. Someone please make me feel good and tell me I got a pretty good deal. Yes, I still have to buy two kegs and a CO2 tank but I hope to get those on Craigslist for cheap. Congrats again OP that's a real nice deal!

there is one just like that on craigslist in my town for 450 with the CO2. So I'd say you got a good deal

I keep wanting to jump on one of these deals where the CO2 tank is included... I don't think anyone understands how pricey CO2 tanks can be.

Oh boy, how much are they? I only bought the kegerator today because I thought I could find the other stuff online for cheap. He quoted me for $540 for everything (2 corny kegs, co2 tank filled, regulator, and kegerator). Not sure if I can find better deals somewhere else. Sorry to threadcrap original poster. I didn't want to make a new thread.

Well a 5# tank is at least $40 new. I've seen some deals in my area for a full kegerator setup with tank for $100. Good call not buying the rest of the stuff though, each corney would be around $40 as well, reg is $30, so it's only really worth $150 more than what you paid.
