Touchless Ice Bagger Machines

Follett has been making quality ice bins, bagging machines, and commercial ice machines since 1948. Follett ice machines are a popular choice for many businesses, but did you know they also make some of the most reliable ice bagging machines on the market?

Easy Ice is the only national ice machine leasing company in the US. We provide the very best equipment from top ice machine brands like Hoshizaki, Manitowoc, and Scotsman. We’re excited to announce our new addition of Follett ice dispensing bins and ice bagging machines for industries that regularly transport ice.

Some industries include:

Touchless Follett Ice Machines Make for a Safer Work Environment

Maintaining a safe and sanitary ice supply is more important now than ever. Follett touchless ice bagging machines and dispensing bins are a safer alternative to conventional dispensers.

Our Follett Ice Pro DB650SA and Follett Ice Pro DB1000SA use hands-free, automatic dispensing technology to allow users to bag or dispense ice without ever opening the bin door.

Our all-inclusive ice machine subscriptions include Follett Ice Machines’ revolutionary models that reduce contamination and keep your ice supply safe.

The Follett Ice Pro series can accommodate a range of commercial ice machines to meet any industry’s ice needs.

While commercial ice machines are generally very safe, following improper ice safety solutions or not keeping up with cleaning can lead to cross-contamination.

Despite popular belief, ice can carry germs long enough to infect an unsuspecting customer or employee. Even when companies keep up with professional cleaning, touching an ice machine’s surface can expose the surface to harmful pathogens that can make their way into the ice supply.

Follett touchless ice machines, like the Ice Pro series, use push-petal technology to dispense ice automatically. Employees never need to use a scoop to dispense ice by hand. The entire ice supply is contained within the machine, keeping it safe from accidental exposure.

Follett ice dispensing bins allow users to fill coolers or other containers quickly without having to reach into the ice bin. Employees can maintain a distance from the ice supply, reducing the chance of cross-contamination.

Follett Ice Machines are Durable

Many areas, like manufacturing and distribution facilities, provide challenging environments to commercial ice machines. Follett ice machines are made of stainless steel and durable plastic that withstands the day-to-day rigors of a busy factory or workplace.

Follett ice storage models, like ice bagging machines and dispensing bins, are lined with a corrosion-resistant poly liner to keep ice cool and solid.

Follett ice makers allow ice machine technicians to remove vital components quickly, making service fast and easy. The quicker the ice machine service, the faster you can get back to serving ice to your customers and employees.

Follett Ice Machines Make Transporting Ice Convenient

Transporting ice can be a real challenge without the right equipment. Bagging ice by hand can be tiresome and a waste of time.

Transporting the ice is another issue altogether. Many businesses use carts to move the ice from place to place. Ideally, you want equipment that quickly and conveniently dispenses and stores ice with minimal effort.

Follett has been the leading ice machine manufacturer specializing in ice storage options and ice bagging machines for decades. Like our Follett Ice DevIce Dispensing ice bin, many of our models are designed to quickly fill ice containers or bags. These models also come with a convenient ice cart to transport ice from station to station.

Many of Follett’s hands-free ice dispenser solutions dispense and transport ice with the push of a petal. Our automatic touchless ice bagging machines from Follett can fill eight 8-lb bags of ice a minute. Many use an automated bag opening system that uses air to blow bags open before use. Employees don’t have to struggle opening plastic bags be hand.

Follett ice makers are a fantastic option if you run a facility that needs to bag or store ice for employees or food vendors.
