SUMMIT's full-sized beer dispenser brings the pleasure of a cold draft to the outdoors. Fully equipped to stand up to the elements, the SBC490OS meets and exceeds U.L. requirements for safe outdoor operation. The exterior is completely wrapped in non-corrodible 304 grade stainless steel, with the back fully sealed to protect all electrical components. An integrated Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) prevents circuit breaks from damaging the unit or causing electric shocks. Our 12 in. long towel bar handle offers a comfortable grip while adding a durable touch of elegance. We also offer an alternative "HV" handle with a slim 14mm diameter to match many popular cabinet styles. The SBC490OS includes all the tap accessories you need to serve beer from a half, quarter, or mini keg, as well as removable shelves that conveniently convert the beer cooler into a refrigerator. Automatic defrost saves time and maintenance and an adjustable thermostat lets you set the proper temperature for stored beer. Designed primarily for freestanding use, this undercounter beer dispenser can be installed as a built-in unit but requires 1-1/2 in. of space between the rear of the unit and wall and a 1/2 in. of space between the unit sides and cabinetry. With luxurious style and superior construction, the SBC490OS transforms backyard lounging into a true bar experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sorry Try to get service if it has problems. Don't let the freon panel get punctured or you will get rid of it because you will never find anyone to fix it. DONT rely on SUMMIT because they have no one to refer you to. I have spent $300.00 trying to fix mine and 8 months time with no results. I am now having to buy a new one. It definitely won't be a SUMMIT!!!! December 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I would definatly recomend this product. Over all i think this is a very nice product, its only draw back to me is the wheels..... i think they should be either bigger or a softer because it is not that easy to push around outside.. if you use this inside it is ok but it is designed for out doors and it is not that easy. With that being said its worth the money and i am happy with it. September 7, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jury is Still Out I bought one of these in August and it was delivered DOA. I went back and forth with the manufacturer who finally sent out a local repair company. They looked at it and said that the compressor needed to be replaced. I did not hear anything for over a week and then contacted Summit. They said that the entire unit was going to be replaced. I asked about the original and they told me to dispose of it. They did not want it. The replacement was FINALLY delivered yesterday. I plugged it in and it appears to be working as of this morning. I guess the good news is that this time they shipped a chrome tap. The original had a gold tap for a stainless cabinet! Their parts department told me that was how it was supposed to be. Seriously? I wonder about this company but am hopeful that the new unit will work properly. The other good news is that I now have a backup CO2 tank, regulator, cleaning kid, and other parts. The bad news is that I need to find someone to haul away the fridge. November 12, 2011
