Xiltek XDD-24-72-HC First Impressions

"Great for my new bar!"

It shows a regulator for a single tap installed with the CO2 tank. In fact, buy a second canister as backup. I bought this kegerator because it was one of the highest rated. Also the C02 dual gauge doesn't seem to like the cold. After the first pour, however, the faucet is fine. Thanks to The Beverage Factory for finally resolving the issue. Great product but packaging and shipment was a disappointment.

Xiltek XDD-24-72-HC Final Thoughts

"Good construction."

But like I said, you need to know a little about kegs and lines and connections. It's so much fun, the beer tastes so much better and. Would rather have the hose and barb connectors to allow more flexibility. Pourers a good glass without it being all head, temperature is consistent. We may actually add a backup co2 to have on hand when the original one runs out. I deal with the pressure differentials in kegs when that time comes. It shows a regulator for a single tap installed with the CO2 tank.

"Nice unit."

I have two hang ups that could have been better. My only problem now is the keg is may! Go there and have it filled up or else your Keg WON'T WoRK. This is probably one of my favorite Amazon buys ever! Seller could have offered me the same option but didn't. The dispenser is pretty simple, and basic, but works just fine. Wish there was an option for the Perlik taps which should really be the stock item.

"He loves it!"

I recently purchased this for my husband for a Christmas gift. Fortunately, if you bring a glass, that's not such a bad chore. Great product but packaging and shipment was a disappointment. If you don't get them tight, expect leaks. The temp control is great, it holds beer down to about 38F pretty easily. I work in the beer industry and I'm going to say this kegerator is on point. Fresh, super cold, right-from-the-tap beer anytime I want it!

3. Kegco Keg Dispenser, Single Faucet, Black

Kegco Z163B-1 First Impressions

"He was thrilled."

Unfortunately, it did not start off that way. I find myself drinking more and inviting friends over more. Paintball places are also a good place to look. This did not resolve the issue so I was sent a replacement tower. Paintball places are also a good place to look. It's empty because I'm sure you can't mail pressurized gas canisters. Other than that, comes With everything you need minus the gas and beer.

  • Kegco Keg Dispenser, Single Faucet, Black
  • COMMERCIAL OR FREESTANDING USE: The Kegco Z163B-1 features a durable construction, high powered performance, and quiet and energy efficient operation that make it suitable for both commercial and residential applications. It has been CSA certified to conform to NSF/ANSI 7.
  • INCLUDES COMPLETE KEG TAPPING KIT: The Z163B-1 comes complete with a single tap draft dispense system and everything you need to tap a domestic D system keg, including a single faucet stainless draft tower, a chrome faucet, an empty 5 lb. CO2 tank, a double gauge CO2 regulator, and a D system keg coupler.
  • POWERFUL COOLING TECHNOLOGY: Intuitive push button controls and a clear LED display make it easy to precisely set the internal temperature between 32 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, one of the widest available temperature ranges of any keg dispenser on the market today. Fan-forced cooling helps maintain the optimal refrigerated storage environment, and an air-cooled draft tower ensures that every drop of beer remains refreshingly chilled from the keg to your glass.
  • CONVENIENT DESIGN FEATURES: This beer dispenser has all of the same great features that you've come to appreciate in other Kegco models, like an easy-to-clean removable built-in drip tray, a chrome guardrail that helps prevent glasses from sliding off of the countertop, and easy rolling casters that allow you to easily move the unit from room to room in your home or business! These casters lock to keep the unit from moving again once it's in position.
  • LARGE INTERIOR: The generously sized 5.8 cu.ft. interior can hold one full size keg (including Miller kegs, Coors kegs, and rubber kegs), one pony keg, one quarter slim keg, two 5 gallon commercial kegs, three ball lock kegs, or two pin lock kegs. When you're not using it to store and dispense kegs, you can use the three wire storage shelves to convert the keg refrigerator into a regular all-refrigerator. The unit measures 35.875" H x 24.375" W x 24" D.

Kegco Z163B-1 Final Thoughts

"The kegerator is awesome."

People having bad experiences must have just stuck with a lemon. The temp control is great, it holds beer down to about 38F pretty easily. This Unit Was just about everything I expected, it works great! Also, Do not remove the duck bill from the CO2 line input! 5 gallons kegs on the metal shelf no problem. Too much money to arrive with damage. This is my second kegerator and I love this one more.

4. Kegco HK38SSU-1 Keg Dispenser

Kegco HK38SSU-1 First Impressions

"Easy assembly."

Watch YouTube videos on setting it up and troubleshooting. We replaced our hose clamps after all of the CO2 leaked out. Seller could have offered me the same option but didn't. Thanks to The Beverage Factory for finally resolving the issue. In a tree seems to be away entough. Big size compared to many other kegerators. Unfortunately, it did not start off that way.

  • Kegco HK38SSU-1 Keg Dispenser
  • BUILT-IN OR FREESTANDING USE: Features a front-venting design that can be built in undercounter to provide a seamless look for your backyard BBQ island or outdoor kitchen. A stainless steel guard rail is included to prevent glasses or mugs from sliding off the top in freestanding applications. The attractive stainless steel door includes a lock to keep the contents secure, and both a towel bar and a curved handle are included for easy customization.
  • INCLUDES EXCLUSIVE PREMIUM DIRECT DRAW KIT: Kegco's X-CLUSIVE Premium Direct Draw Kit comes complete with an empty 5 lb. aluminum CO2 tank with electric red epoxy finish, a Kegco LH-542 Pro Series double gauge CO2 regulator, a Kegco KT85D-L "D" system lever handle keg coupler, a 3" diameter polished stainless steel draft tower with a stainless faucet for 100% stainless contact, a 12" x 7" stainless drip tray, and a deluxe hand pump cleaning kit.
  • POWERFUL COOLING TECHNOLOGY: At 3200 BTUs, it has the most powerful compressor in its class, providing unprecedented cooling for fast recovery and temperature pulldown. Forced air refrigeration ensures that cold air is evenly distributed throughout the cabinet so there are no hot spots. Cold air is directed into the beer tower, ensuring that the lines are cold all the way up to the faucet so there's less foam between pours.
  • DIGITAL TEMPERATURE DISPLAY: Easily adjust and view the set temperature, toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit, or turn the interior light on and off with the push of a button. The controls can be accessed effortlessly at the front of the cabinet, out of the way of the dispense system. Temperature can be set between 32 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's cold enough for cold beer, coffee, kombucha, and even wine.
  • LARGE STAINLESS STEEL INTERIOR: This kegerator measures 34-1/8" H x 24" W x 25" D and features a beautiful stainless steel interior that is more durable and easy-to-clean than the plastic liner found in many competing models. Enough floor space is provided to house a full size keg, two quarter slim kegs, or up to three 5 gallon kegs, and two adjustable wire shelves are included to allow you to covert the beer dispenser into a refrigerator when you are in need of extra cold storage.

"Been working great."

Tower is insulated to keep temperatures low from keg to faucet. Came with the correct fitting to tap Michelob ultra keg. Secondly, the unit is set up for Commercial Couplers. It's so much fun, the beer tastes so much better and. Would rather have the hose and barb connectors to allow more flexibility. We love our kegerator and have taken it to parties with great success. Would highly recommend this product for a first time kegerator users!

"It's been perfect so far."

8ish and Coors light is perfect temp. 5 gallons kegs on the metal shelf no problem. There are three things in my opinion that you need to do when you get this. I ordered the unit from VM Express. If you don't get them tight, expect leaks. Other than that, comes With everything you need minus the gas and beer. It gets colder than a lot of other residential kegerators I have looked at.

"Works well as described."

I've run this unit daily for the past 2 years or so. I would recommend watching as many YouTube videos you can about the assembly. It was easy to set up; probably only took about 30 minutes from start to finish. The cO2 canister that comes with the product is not filled with cO2. Don't kid yourself on the money saving aspect. It's empty because I'm sure you can't mail pressurized gas canisters. I find myself drinking more and inviting friends over more.

"After about 1 hr."

Definitely cut-down on the amount of money spent at the bar. It starts cold at 32 degrees and beer is perfect temperature. Since replacing them, we haven't had any problems. It's important to have a fan to move air around. Wish there was an option for the Perlik taps which should really be the stock item. Thankfully, they put a couple extra in there.

"Would buy another one."

Tower is insulated to keep temperatures low from keg to faucet. It seems like it has some sort of rattling when it kicks on. I end up using the under keg area for bottled and canned beer. Pourers a good glass without it being all head, temperature is consistent. It seems like it has some sort of rattling when it kicks on. I bought this kegerator for my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. This is by far a great bucket list item for a guy if they don't already have one.

"It is a great unit."

But like I said, you need to know a little about kegs and lines and connections. I have a home brew operation and I am using Cornelius Kegs. Did not give it 5 stars because of the directions! It was easy to put together, easy to put a keg into. Product arrived with a damaged interior door. I hear the fan inside more than the compressor. Thankfully, they put a couple extra in there.

It's so awesome coming home to a freezing cold tapped beer. I bought this kegerator because it was one of the highest rated. This is my first venture into owning a kegerator.

It's important to have a fan to move air around. It will fit 2 sixtels and if you keep it minimally cared for it will make you happy. Since replacing them, we haven't had any problems. Thanks to The Beverage Factory for finally resolving the issue. It's empty because I'm sure you can't mail pressurized gas canisters.
