Why should I buy the F85?

Automatic fill ice machines are certainly a tad more expensive than manual fill but the benefits they bring far outweigh the extra investment. Whether your business uses ice predominantly for high end food displays, white wine ice buckets or drink consumption in the glass, an efficient ice maker should provide you with pure, crystal clear ice cubes on demand - and enough to service your needs, particularly at peak times. This machine delivers full cube ice; ice makers producing half cube, thimble shaped nugget ice and flaked ice are all available too.

The stylish Foster F85 autofill ice machine from leading UK manufacturer Foster has been designed for bars, restaurants, hotels and other catering businesses with a requirement of up to 83 kilos of full cube ice every 24 hours. The ultra cold square cubes measure 31 mm x 24 mm x 26 mm and remain as ice for so much longer – in the glass, in the bucket or in the machine’s storage bin. The bin capacity is 27 kilos.

Ice production is subject to the same food safety considerations as other food products, and total temperature control within the machine ensures superb hygiene. Foster’s new flush system ensures that ice is crystal clear and free from impurities; it also eliminates the risk of limescale build up. The F85 is highly practical and is capable of producing 1 kilo of ice from as little as 5 litres of water. This is worth considering if your water is metered.

The external dimensions of the unit are 885 mm (h) x 690 mm (w) x 520 mm (d) and it has a net weight of 45 kilos. A 150 mm gap is required each side for sufficient airflow and energy efficient operation of the machine. The unit is plug in and a 13 A plug and supply cable are ready fitted. A 20 mm drain and ¾” BSP connection are required for connection to the mains water supply. The appliance is manufactured from high quality grade 304 stainless steel and has a white food safe interior. Legs are fitted as standard, alloqwing, should it be required, an increase in height for drainage; 70 mm is the potential height increase.

Foster have produced an innovative design with a new easy to use electro-mechanical control for consistent results every time. The new condenser thermostat means that a full harvest of ice cubes is always yielded. Foster offer their customers high output and top quality ice production, together with a machine of excellent build quality and stylish lines. The appliance carries Foster’s excellent 2 year parts and labour warranty; also it is currently available on 0% interest terms over 12 months.

The F85 autofill ice maker is one of a range from Foster, with varying daily ice cube outputs from 20 kilos to 320 kilos. Also, modular ice flakers are available with a range of outputs from 120 kgs to 220 kgs.

Advantages of leasing

  • Significant tax benefits – For private organisations payments are fully tax deductible unlike using cash.
  • Low, fixed payments allow easy budgeting throughout the term
  • Spread the cost of your purchases in line with the return on the investment
  • Make your capital work for you – Rather than sink valuable cash into depreciating assets, deploy it elsewhere for higher returns
  • Totally flexible, a lease allows you to determine the term, how frequently you pay and can be upgraded or changed throughout.
  • Manage obsolescence and refresh assets strategically rather than face unbudgeted large write offs.
  • Make investment decisions based upon your needs and not limited by constrained budgets
  • Reduce dependency on your primary funder(s) – Your existing credit lines remain unaffected and you will have access to over 20 specialist asset funders
  • Spread the cost of the VAT which is paid in instalments rather than as a lump sum up-front.
  • Turnkey funding – Build all your costs such as delivery, extended warranties etc into the lease to maximise your benefits even further

Terms & conditions
