About Us

We design, build and sell the world’s best selling line of compact ice resurfacing machines. While custom designed and built for the smaller ice rink surfaces found in shopping malls, practice facilities, temporary and portable rinks, our resurfacer’s have the high performance features of a full-sized ice resurfacer.

Great Ice now comes with a new look!

After 10 years of building the 124, and 224 series of machines, we introduced the new 240 and 248 Series of machines in 2013.

The 248 Series of machines are new from the chassis up. You can see from the new shape that we’ve incorporated a new, larger snow tank. We’ve added new options and features. Yet, we’ve maintained the same basic size and function of the previous machines. It’s still a compact ice resurfacing machine. Custom designed and quality built in America for ice rinks in the 2000 to 12000 sq.ft range.

We’ve given our electric machines more power with a standard 48V battery package. The fuel powered machine also has a new larger more powerful engine for use on the busy and sometimes larger or snowier outdoor rinks. The new 248E and 240G machines were used during the 2014 NHL Winter Classic and 2014 Stadium Series outdoor games.
