Hello, I would like to start a small shave ice biz in Cali. nothing big just maybe some school/church carnivals but idk what machine to purchase. In my area it is very difficult to find solid blocks of ice all that you find is the compressed ice so I was thinking of starting with a Hatsuyuki HC-8E cube shaver, does any one have any experience with that machine and is there any thoughts or suggestions?

From the things I have read on this forum, it seems you will not find many people here that would suggest a cube shaver. The most common reason cited is that is does not create a texture that you will find with a block shaver. I looked into them in the very beginning and decided for myself personally that I was not willing to sacrifice product quality and wanted to serve a product I was proud of.

Having said that, you ultimately have to decide what is best for you and your potential operation. Good luck with your endeavor!

Hello, Ive read that if block ice is melting too fast it won't make a good shave ice. Any thoughts on how to keep it cold enough thru the hot summer days without an on-site freezer?

You can add some dry ice.
