I bought a Concession Cart that Sebastian manufactures from a man in Greely last August. He bought it for fun I think and found out it was work and stored it in a huge warehouse that he now rents to Excel. This guy has a nice income from different businesses he owns in Greeley.
1, He said he redid the electric because it was running through raw metal drilled holes no bushing or whatever for the wire to run through.
2. He replaced the Grey water tank.
3. He added a front detachable wheel.
4. It has black marks on the doors on the top storage area where the water tank is that came from the factory that way and cannot be removed.
5. I had to have the copper tubing fixed because of leaking. The plumber, a friend said it was not built with the 1200 degree solder like he was going to use and that's why it melted.
5. My burner knob (flame adjuster) spins around no stop. My plumber friend is going to fix that soon
5. I called Sebastian before I bought the cart last August because I didn't want a wooden floor, because it was the cart tha Ben writes about in his book (I'm sure of that, and this is my opinion) that the propane tanks fell out. I guess the wood rottened. Sebastian assured me that there was no wood on the cart. It was dark when I looked late in the day, and it was painted to where in that lighting the floor looked like stainless steel. After I got home a few days later, I had to look underneath putting the license plate on and saw that it was a particleboard floor. Sebastian mislead me.
6. The panel on the back end where the condiments go has never been finished properly by any angle metal with rivets. where the two corners meet and move, you or your customers can tear your clothes on it. I have to get to that repair too.
Jim, keep in mind that this man I bought it from in Greely used it twice. I mean it was like right out of the crate in a dry climate in this man's warehouse when I purchased it. It is the pantagonia model I think. After I get the burner knob fixed, I think it will be an OK cart.
I don't think there are any tow carts out there worth $10,000. It's all stainless steel 18 gauge I think and put together for the most part with rivets. I paid $2500 for mine just like new. I don't think I'd pay $10,000 for any of them. http://www.ripoffreport.com/food-vendors/concession-carts-com/concession-carts-company-hot-d-ebced.htm
