Product Description

For the best in shaved ice the Snowie 3000 Ice Shaver is in a class by its self. This is simply the quietest, fastest, most reliable, and easy to use ice shaver ever produced! Just pour in the ice, step on the pedal, and out comes a snow that truly rivals Mother Nature’s own. Rattling doors, loose belts, and loose tensions are worries of the past. The Snowie 3000 blade can be changed with a pair of plyers in about a minute’s time. This machine has a built in drip pan and a self cooling 1 hp motor that allows you to make one shaved ice after another, all day long. How fast is it? This shaved ice machine will turn an 8 lbs bag of ice into snow in just over a minute. That’s about 18 shaved ice per minute. Picture’s do not do this ice shaver justice so take a moment and view our streamline video that shows first hand what the Snowie 3000 Ice Shaver can truly do. For more information about height, weight and other technical information, click on the Tech-n-Spec link below.

We’re so certain that you’ll love our machine that we’ve implemented a 10 day satisfaction guarantee and a one year limited warranty.

Shown to the left is how easy it is to make the best shaved ice in the world. Notice in the second and third frame how our exclusive patented snow catcher molds along the bottom of the cup for glove free, waste free operation.

Fill the cup with snow, then another tap for over fill and slide the cup in and up into another of our patented features, the cone topper. That’s it, no fuss, no mess, just fluffy, perfectly packed shaved ice that, cup for cup, no one in the industry can match.

I am a new owner and competion is no problem at all. I love going to places and setting up with other shaved ice competitors. People love my snow cones and when i am using my machine it draws a crowd for people to watch the machine making the snow cone. Has to be the best of the best machines its worth every penny. As a matter of fact it paid for its self in one weekend. Blessed

    Looking too buy a 3000 but not sure if I should get DC VOLTS or 120AC could you please help me on this discussion cause im looking too use it both indoor and outdoor and I own a 2000 watt honda generator so think you can tell me if the 1 horsepower witch = too about 750 watts motor will work and could you tell me if a marina battery will power it as well and for about how long in hrs ?

    • Aaron

      (verified owner):

      Ok, one thing you will want to consider is if you think you will mostly have power, even at your “outside” events then you will want to go with the AC 3000 Ice Shaver. I would say that 95% of the events out there supply power to their vendors.

      If you feel like most of the time you will not have power, then you will want to go with the DC.

      The Honda 2000 Watt Generator will not be enough to run your Snowie 3000 Ice Shaver. We usually encourage people to get at least a 3000 Watt generator for the shaver alone. (Make sure it is 3000 Running Watts, they can be deceiving) This does not include anything else. If you need to run anything along with your shaver (i.e.. lights, air conditioner, blower, water systems, etc. you will want to bump that up to a 5000 Watt generator).

      Here is a forum entry that I wrote not long ago. Please note the bold entry at the top.

      Please let us know if you have any further questions,

      – Aaron

    What would be the best shaver?? The 3000 or the block?? What’s the benefit of the block vs bag ice vs block?? To me the bag ice shaver would not limit you to running out of ice. Bag ice would easier to find if your doing large events. Please advise. Thanks and love all the videos on YouTube

      Bobby, I am sorry for the delay, I think I have started writing you back about 10 times and keep getting pulled away.

      You have it exactly right. Block Ice is obviously a better snow because of the very nature of the block. You are shaving from a perfectly flat surface, so you do not get pieces of ice in your shaved ice. But with block, you run into a few things on availability. Block is becoming more and more extinct. In fact the majority of block ice is now what they called compressed ice. This is where they take pieces of other ice dump it in a mold, add water and refreeze it. It is faster for them, but it is not ideal for shaved ice. If you want solid ice, you usually have to start making that yourself.

      Taking this step is a great one, but it is not without effort. You are now in the ice business too. You need to prep that ice, freeze it, store it, and transport it. Where with cube ice, you could pretty much show up anywhere, at any event and be able to find yourself cube ice. The downfall here, is that your snow is not quite as fine as that produced by the block ice shaver. With that said, however, we have a lot of people who are block ice shaver fanatics and they will fly in, try the Snowie 3000 Cube Ice Shaver and say, “That is close enough for me!”

      Let me know if this helps or if you have additional questions,

      – Aaron

    We just finished a big Oktoberfest event.
    With our having lines all three days, I can’t imagine trying to do an event like this with a slower ice shaver.
    The Snowie 3000 is lighting fast and helped us keep to keep the lines manageable.
    Now I just need to get a flavor station so we don’t need 2 people pouring to keep up with the shaver.
