I have been shopping for chest freezers and decided on the Whirlpool 8.9 cu ft model at Lowes for my kegerator. The main reason being the Whirlpool model is about 1 1/2 inches deeper than most other similar sized models which allow you to place 2 corny kegs in a line front to back, and for this particular model 5 kegs without using compressor shelf (see sticky on chest freezer sizing for picture). Lowes is the only place I have found this Whirlpool model freezer. Today I noticed a $30 price drop to $268 and the addition of several Frigidarie models that will be available Sept. 3.. I am guessing Lowes is switching from Whirlpool to Frigidaire and lowered the prices to clear them out. I will emphasize this is only a guess but I am pulling the purchase trigger today.
