    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 Rupp

      (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.

    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

    • Aaron Rupp

      (verified owner):

      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.

    I am a new startup shaved ice company in my area. I bought the full Snowie 3000 package and was initially happy. The Snowie 3000 produced good snow and was very fast. The Snowie flavors are excellent and beat the competition hands down for flavor. We were open for about 2 months and the business was starting to take off. Then the Snowie 3000 unit failed due to a motor failure. When I called for tech support they had me do some basic tests and said that there was a known motor problem and they would send a new one out that day and I would have it by Friday. This would have been acceptable however; the unit did not go out until the next day due to a shortage of a parts at Snowie’s plant meaning it did not arrive until the following Monday. This caused me to mess an entire weekend of sales. This is the worst case scenario for a startup company in an industry that only has a few months each year to capitalize on sales.
    I would not recommend the Snowie 3000 since it clearly has a flawed design problem with the motor and can fail at any time furthermore; Snowie does not keep a spare machine on the shelf in the event of an emergency situation like mine. I would have given the Snowie 3000 a 1 star rating however rated 2 stars due to the Snowie flavors.

      Phillip,

      I am very sorry that you had a bad experience with our Snowie 3000 Ice Shaver. I will say, that although a known problem had appeared, it was a brief problem with a batch of motors. Your ice shaver was not sent out with any thought that it may fail. There are many ice shavers that all went out, even within that same batch that are all working fine. I will say that the Snowie 3000 Ice Shaver is the most stable, strong ice shaver on the market and it is extremely rare for one of them to fail. I am sorry that happened to you, and I certainly understand your frustration. I also apologize that your replacement went out a day later. We do usually stock our warehouse with ice shavers and parts, however, this year has been an anomaly because we have had multiple delays from our suppliers as well.

      I am not trying to fill this reply with excuses. I know you are frustrated and that this mechanical failure and availability set you back. I understand and we are sorry that occurred. We do everything we can to make sure that you have the best ice shaver possible, but as with any business, part, and industry, things don’t always work as they should. I hope, in the end, that you have been happy with your replacement and that it provided you with a great income. I hope, over time, that you will have good things to say about it.

      Thank you for your comments and feedback, we listen and act on every word.

    Hi Aaron,

    Like your products a lot. Thinking about getting a 3000 shaver, but can’t decide whether 110v or 12v I should get. Maybe you can help me here.

    1. Do both perform the same, in quality and quantity wise? Can quality of the ice shaved and the amount of shaved ice produced about the same?
    2. For the 12v version, can I use a marine battery as the power source? For a 35aH battery, what’s the quantity it can produce on a fully charged battery?

    Reason I ask is if I were at an event where there’s no electricity provided and there is not a constant flow of business. It seems to me a fully charged marine battery is better than a constant running generator (environment pollution, noise, and gas). Nor sure my thinking is realistic, need your opinion.

    Thank a lot,

    Charles

    • Aaron Rupp

      (verified owner):

      Charles,

      You are very right to debate this. Really, both machines will perform exactly the same as far as the quantity and quality of your shaved ice produced. You can use a Marine battery, which is basically what is called a deep cycle battery. This makes it so that you can discharge and recharge your batteries often. However, we have never used a battery that is only 35 Amp Hours. I could not tell you how long that battery would last. We recommend that people at least purchase a 110 Amp Hour battery which will last you 6-8 hours running your shaver consistently.

      Now, as far as the wise usage… It really depends on what type of business you are doing and how often. There are even many ways to approach each of them. Personally I like being able to use an ice shaver that I know I can plug in and use all day long for as long as I desire. If I ever need to then use that ice shaver in the middle of a field at something like a balloon festival, then I will take a generator and I can survive that way. However, if that same balloon festival imposed a noise ordinance, then my generator is usually out of the question, unless I have a costly silent generator that is powerful enough to run my ice shaver.

      Now, having a 12 volt shaver that is running off of my deep cycle battery, I would be sitting pretty. But if that is the only event throughout the year where I do not have power and cannot use a generator, I need to make sure the purchase of that 12 volt shaver is justified. Now, could I use a charger on my battery and keep a feed of power going to the batteries while I do have power? Yes. Could I also charge my batteries from a generator when necessary? Yes. So really, you could purchase a 12 Volt Ice Shaver and use it the same way you would a 110 Volt Shaver. You just need to lug around your batteries as well.

      I know this is a long answer, but I hope it helps bring some clarity to your decision. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns,

      – Aaron

      Thank you for your questions, I am sorry for my delay in getting back with you. I have been pulled away from the web for some time and I am trying to catch everyone back up. We do not have a supplier in the UAE at this time. We have had many people inquire to be a supplier but nobody has taken the steps to actually become one. We would be happy to supply you with these machines. I can offer you a 5% discount on your purchase if you order to shavers, but that is the best I can do at this time.

      Please let me know if I can help you further and if you would like to move forward with that purchase.

      Thank you,
