Just bought the 7.0 GE from home depot. Should have it by Saturday and going to start my keezer build. Can't wait as I have been without one for a month already and my kegs are building up!

There wasn't too much info out there about this freezer (many people refer to it at a 9 cu. ft.), but I was pretty sure from poking around on HBT that I'd be able to get 6 kegs in there. I ended up being able to fit 7!

For visual proof, here's a picture with seven kegs, four on the floor, and three more on the hump (one is barely on the hump, and could probably be pushed to the floor, but why bother). I opted to keep my CO2 tank outside the keezer.

This thing has been great, I can serve four beers and carb up three more that are on deck!

Hope this helps out anyone looking at this particular chest freezer.
Jesse55lv - thanks for posting this. I picked up this exact model on sale at Lowes!

This image should help

i have found pin lock kegs to be substantially shorter and slightly fatter than ball locks. people should keep that in mind when ordering and considering how many will fit. you might not need a collar, but you might not be able to get as many in there, either.

Went out this afternoon looking at chest freezers. These are from Menards and Lowes:

Frigidaire 9.0 Cu Ft Model LFFC09M5HW




Frigidaire 15 Cu Ft Model LFFN15M5HW
This will really hold 6 (8 if you put a collar on it) I ran out of cardboard :P




Holiday 7 Cu Ft Model LCM070LC




Holiday 5 Cu Ft Model LCM050LC




Amana 14.8 Cu Ft Model AQC1518TEW
This will really hold 7 (8 on shelf if you create a collar)




Professional Series 10.6 Cu Ft Model PS72101




Professional 7 Cu Ft Series Model PS72731




Professional Series 5.3 Cu Ft Model PS72451

this fits 4 pin lock (one on hump with a 6" collar) plus a 10lb CO2 tank. still plenty of space around the sides so you could probably fit 5 ball locks.
