If that's the case, the info provided is absolutely worthless. Freezer walls can be any thickness. I'd say that freezer may or may not hold 1 corny keg. :P

Just adding my experience to the list. Model below and link to my thread with a few other pics. I bought new kegs so their dimensions may differ (beveragefactory). The 4 fit on the floor but not even a 1/4" of wiggle room to spare. Im adding 2 taps by putting kegs on the hump bringing the total to 6 kegs in the near future. I added a 10" collar and 5" casters, and yes its really tall (48"), and I like it that way.

Fridgidaire 7.2cuft from Lowes. Model: FFC0723GB. ~$280 delivered.

Where did you drill a hole for the co2 line to go through? I'm about to possibly get one of these off of craigslist and I don't want to drill through anything important.

Put the hole for the CO2 line through your collar. There is too much chance of hitting a freon line in the body of the freezer.

Nice find. That fridge option is pretty awesome, that serve in place of a temp controller for most people.
