These carts are used primarily to scoop Italian ice for a limited amount of time. These carts are similar to the ones that Little Jimmy's uses for their Italian ices. These carts are really well insulated, and I've had some customers tell me that they were able to get up to 6 hours of scooping ice without using dry ice. The CLT-4 No Refrigeration cart isn't for everyone, but it certainly is the most affordable way to get into the Italian Ice business. Smallest push cart. No electricity or cold plates needed. Use "cool packs" to help keep product cold.
