White Oak Tub with stainless steel adjustable bands, or available with an all-poly tub at no additional cost. This takes the worries out of potential leakage due to the drying out of the wood staves.
As with all wooden tub ice cream freezers the wood tub must be maintained to prevent wood shrinkage in dry atmospheres and not stored in hot and dry garages and attics to prevent shrinkage that will lead to leakage. If the container is used only periodically a routine should be established to fill with water to maintain the staves. The manufacturer does not warrant the ice cream freezer tubs from leakage. Normally filling with hot water will return the staves back to fitting tightly and stop leakage.
Lever slide clutch makes it easy to engage the freezer. The heavy-duty gearbox utilizes a belt and pulley to run the freezer pulley. Clear Plexiglass shield on the outside for curious fingers.
The tub is hinged for easy tip-over to remove ice.
Dimensions: 54” L x 24” W x 41” H. Net weight 269 lbs., shipping weight 344 lbs.
