Yes. I can also confirm the latest Kenmore 7.2 cubic foot chest freezer DOES hold 4 ball lock corny's on the floor. (Like a Glove). The freezer also feels pretty sturdy and well made, despite the Kenmore reputation.

(Freezer purchased off Sears website March/April of 2012 during a weekend sale for appx. $180)

A little more fit data:

The ball lock kegs are roughly 8.5" in diameter. A pin lock is larger. A 1/6 barrel commercial keg is also larger. Four pin locks will not fit in the 7.2 in the well. Four 1/6 commercial kegs will not fit in the 8.8 in the well. Three 1/6 commercial's will fit in the 8.8 with a ball lock.

One might ask - what happens if you go large? The Kenmore 14.8 cubic foot freezer is 1) white not black (yuck) 2) another $100 over the 8.8.

You can get 8, but not 9 ball lock corny's in the well of the 14.8. Six 1/6'th barrel kegs look like an easy fit. Based simply on the tape measure, two 1/2 barrel kegs also should fit. It will fit the 17" Miller / Coors kegs that give everybody fits with the smaller freezers.

White ... yuck.... need some spray paint fast ...

heres a pic of the one I just threw together using the 7.2 kenmore, ill be able to get plenty of kegs for me in there, 4 on the floor and then either a 5th on the hump or a lagering secondary. the plan is once I get in the new house I will cover it in 1x10 red oak, and build an apron out of the same to put it on castors. I will also move the co2 to outside to make room on the hump. A temperature controller is on its way and will arrive wednesday so until then I just monitor the temps manually and switch it on and off as necessary

I am looking in to purchasing the 7.2 kenmore from sears, as it is the lowest price I have been ever to find brand new. How many 1/6th barrel kegs will I be able to fit in there with a 5lb co2 tank?

If I built a collar, could I get 4 ball locks on the floor and 1 on the hump for a total 5 ball locks in the 7.2 kenmore? Sorry to bump an old thread, but the info is much appreciated as I may buy it this weekend.

I have searched the forum and seen every other brand used, no one has used a Kenmore.
Not sure if your question was answered since I didn't read all the comments. But I have the same freezer and I can fit four ball lock kegs staggered maybe two more on the hump if you build a collar.
