Coolers

Just wondering how you guys keep water for your employees and yourself. I have a Engel Deep Blue 80 quart it was expensive but it was worth it because it holds ice for a week. So what do you guys use ?

I got a mid size coleman. We probably replace it every year from banging around the back of the truck. I actually dropped the skid steer bucket on the last one and smashed it. I have a small freezer in the garage that freezes blocks of ice every night(2liter bottles). They keep the cooler colder longer than cubes and much cheaper.

Igloo cooler. Works great for us. I also freeze the 2 liters or milk jugs. Works perfect

Coolers like yeti and engel are worth every penny. You can lock them so no one can mess with your beer. Haha. http://www.engel-usa.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&category_id=2&flypage=vmj_genx.tpl&product_id=43&option=com_virt uemart&Itemid=60&vmcchk=1&Itemid=60

Those yeti look sweet, cool videos of product testing too, but kinda pricey.
