RIDE and Ice Manager
Automatic Ice Delivery

The ultimate in safe ice transport is Follett's RIDE remote ice delivery equipment. Why transport ice when Horizon Elite™ can do it for you automatically? Horizon series ice machines can deliver ice through a tube up to 75 ft away, and with Ice Manager™ diverter valve system, one Horizon series ice machine can fill two dispensers.

Sanitary Ice

All Horizon Elite Chewblet ice machines can deliver ice from a remote location automatically. This eliminates the cross contamination that can come from human contact while manual transporting ice.

Easier Cleaning

Other ice machines can automatically deliver ice to a dispenser, too, but they must be stacked on top of the dispenser. This makes it very difficult to access the dispenser hopper for cleaning. With RIDE technology, the top of a hopper can be easily removed for access to the hopper for thorough cleaning. By not removing the ice machine, you can save up to $1000 annually.
