Country Freezers are made of rustproof parts and built for years of service. White Oak wood tub complete with stainless adjustable bands. The unit Has an extra heavy-duty stainless steel seamless can and commercial duty gear assembly with a grease fitting. NSF Certification on the freezer can and dasher. The new Poly Tub option will be in a dark brown and is made just like the Lifetime poly tubs.

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.

The 20-qt freezer with the large gear frame will be too top-heavy to try and dump. The ice and water mixture will need to be scooped out between batches for the can to sit down in the tub. A long handle saucepan works well followed by a small pan to reach the remainder. An AC saltwater marine bilge pump could be used if there is time to allow the ice to melt before a new batch is made. If the freezer will be on a wagon mount unit, then the tub can be mounted to a hinged platform and dumped.
