Slush Inhaler!

15 posts in this topic

Do any of you guys use this thing?

I just bough one yesterday. I got one a couple of years ago for x-mas but it was stolen out of my house before I could use it.

That figures.

I thought with all of the ice and having almost two buckets per hole it would be worth it.

Can't help you with the slush inhaler.

But I've got a beer inhaler that works pretty good grin.gif\:\/

I'll stop by your house and show you sometime...

In the words of the late Tony the Tiger, THEY'RE GRRRRRRRRREAT! A friend of mine has one and it really is easy to use and does a good job. Dip it in, pull it out and on to the next hole. I told another frind of mine we should just make one out of thin aluminum stove pipe. It sounded like an easy enough plan whilest we sat at the bar and solved worldy issues. Still haven't made one.

The inhaler works great if you have alot of holes to clean. We have one in our 10 holer and it speeds the set-up. Ive been told that if you rivet some thin rubber around the edge of the flappers you can increase the efficency but I havent tried it yet.

Yes they do work great. They also make a product called the catch cover slush bucket that goes on the floor over your holes, so when you are drilling inside your house it collects the ice and keeps your floor dry. They run around $50. This is the first year I have used one and the two products working together saves you a lot of time.

Thats good to hear cuz I JUST BOUGHT ONE YESTERDAY AS WELL. However the guy at Fleet Farm said they got many many complaints cuz they always seem to break. But hopefully these posts are more reliable cuz it was almost $50..... Hope he was wrong...

I have one too. I have used it for about 4 years and no problems. Works best in the perm house because its kind of big to lug with in the portable.

I got one for the perm house. It works great. i did a couple modifications. First I added a longer strip of wood across the top of the handle to prevent it from falling down the hole which I thought the factory should of done. But then that would take away some of their repeat customers. And I duct taped around the bigger holes next to the rods and also around the rim inside. I get alot more of the ice that floats around the hole after its mostly slushed out. Again, they work great inside the bigger houses. I just slush out into a 5 gallon pail and dump that outside when im done.

I need to get one of those for my permanent but I'd like to try one first. I'm sure I'll run into one one day.

You know he didnt really say where they broke but he kind of eluded to the moving part. But I think he just wanted to make excuses of why they didnt have any in. It was actually at scheels, I earlier stated it was Fleet Farm

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
