Test Results of similar units that use Polycarbonate internal ice rotators. After trials & tests of similar built units, with PC/non-metal paddles, with internal drive motors from 120-20. They were found to be. Noisy, vibrated and shook depending on the motor wattage and the size of the ice cubes being shaved. The noise and vibration was.Due to the low height and shape of the paddles. And are designed this way, apart from pushing the ice cubes onto the. Shaving blade, they also allow. Ice cubes to ride back over the paddles. When met with too much resistance.
As any heavy resistance could cause damage to the paddles. It was found from tests. The ice cubes used and the wattage power of the unit, completely dictates the speed of output , along with the amount of noise and vibration in producing an end product. When large 30x50mm size ice cubes were tried, the units tested, other than the KC-500, failed.
Wattage of the drive motor basically depicts the size of ice cubes. It was also found that the output size of the ice. Other than making slush ice, was pretty inconsistent.
In all fairness, similar built units tested, produced slush ice with varying degrees of efficiency. As the wattage dictates the size of ice cube that can be shaved without having all of the shake rattle and roll, anything below 250 watts using the Polycarbonate internal rotor will be for a low home usage, using only small ice cubes. Small watt unit = shaves only small ice cubes, larger more expensive watt unit = shaves the larger ice cubes. Sale prices (mostly & not all) are based on the build costs, with the internal motor being the biggest cost.Of the build, larger watt motor = bigger build cost hence the variations in the sale price of these units.

With a larger volume output of either coarse or finely crushed ice. Built with other features and of a different type of internal construction.
