I want one, so I wanted to reach out to y'all to get some recommendations. I'd have it in my garage, and have about a $5,000 budget. Of course, would happily pay much less. What suggestions do you have?

I've been to a couple of leases that had walk in coolers but I've never heard of walk in freezers. How do you plan to use it?

We have a big family and by the time hunting season is over, we have three chest freezers full of game. I don't like chest freezers because of the difficulty finding the various cuts of meat etc. stand up freezers just don't last very long and I've been burned twice by them.

I'd like to use it simply for frozen storage.

My stand up freezer is 50 years old and still works fine. I'll be happy to take some chili meat off your hands.

They don't build them like that anymore, that's for sure.

Prepare for a higher electrical bill once you start this unit, running 24/7 will use some
power. For myself we just have large upright freezer, yes chest freezers hide foods that
you want, or organized game from other items, veggies, sweets, etc.....

we have 2 large upright freezers (one in the house, one in the garage), both Kenmore, but also both are over 30 years old. We also have a large refrigerator with freezer on top for drinks and overflow freezer space in the garage too. With a budget of $5k, could buy several good upright freezers and allow for replacement years down the road.

The electric cost would blow your budget over a few years. I'm guessing $100-$150 per month. If anyone on here runs a commercial type fridge or freezer, maybe they can chime in. I've got an old coke machine that costs $35 a month on electricity. That's why it's not plugged in anymore...
