Advice needed ASAP about ice machines....

Hello everyone, we're in a pinch about ice machines for our coffee drinks, smoothies and shaved ice treats. We're a small cafe and we can get a good deal - $1600 for a new Scotsman 160lb per day unit or a used scotsman unit that only does 65lbs per day for $900. We are totally new to these frozen drinks and specialties but we anticipate a great response this summer especially. Any advice on if we should go the extra distance on the larger more $$$ is much needed. We plan on using commercial blenders for all our drinks.

Thanks in advance
Bob & Stacy

Regarding your Ice o Mattic ice machine, do you have to comply with any out of the ordinary Health Dept. requirements in order to use it at your bar?
