Help With Soft Serve Decision

I am trying to decide which type of commercial soft serve machine I would like to use.  Money is a consideration of course and I know that these type machines are expensive.  Taylor verses SaniServ versus other brands.   Looking for 2-flavors with a twist.  With the water cooled type machine, does there need to be a dedicated hookup and does that water continually draw from the fresh water supply... or does it recycle, or what?  Can anyone provide some guidance?  Also, came across this 'One Shot' soft serve but the website is, of course, all hype.  Does anyone use One-Shot.
 
Thanks in advance.

    We have a small countertop Taylor. It is a great machine. Generally, most major brands should serve you well. If you are mobile, you can set up a recirculating cooling system. Also, some municipalities will frown on letting tap water just runs through a machine as you will go through hundreds of gallons a day.

    Thank you.  May I ask which countertop make/model you have?  There are tons of choices out there!  I am just trying to understand what I should start out with.  Does it matter, volume wise, whether it is a countertop model or not?

    Always go with a Taylor machine.

    We have a 161. I don't think that we have are maxed out the capacity. So I'm not sure if we are the most helpful for that side. As far as the quality goes, it has been very good.

    Taylor has been a proven choice for many years. If DQ uses them it should tell you something. A counter top will give you a gravity fed machine. A few things to take into account are, recovery time and power needed. Taylor will be the most expensive machine you can buy. You may also want to look into a self cleaning machine. Look around your area and see who is using what. If someone is using a machine that is half the price and the product and service are good then take that into account. Try the soft serve in your area, the proof is in the pudding. Or in this case the ice cream....Good luck!
