Vita-Mix Drink Machine model 5006 Commercial Blender Features & SpecificationsVita-Mix Blending Drink Machine MP 2 Model 5006 by VitaMix The VitaMix Drink Machine is extremely powerful and has a timer built in. The Drink Machine is up to five times more powerful and three times faster than other comparable commercial blenders. This blender means business! Both literally and figuratively . This unit has enough torque to crush a half gallon of ice in three seconds. The automatic timer starts on low and then gets up to high for a smooth finish and turns off automatically. Give your servers time to make the drink and serve the customer easily!As far as a commercial timed blender is concerned – this is a fairly cost effective way to go. If you are a household who just wants a powerful timed blender, well its great for that too!

What are the differences between the Drink Machine1230 and the Drink Machine5006?We think it's just to confuse us all! The two machines are exactly the same as far as motor specs go. The only difference is the1230 has a 64 Ounce container

Pulverizes with the best of ’em! I can smoothie my daily pound of /frozen/ spinach with a dash of water and oil and all the other fruits and veggies I throw in, and nary a Vitamix-eye is batted. The only time I’ve overheated the motor was when I made a double batch using roughly two pounds of spinach straight out of the freezer, which has happened once in the 3 years I’ve had it… oh, and did I mention I’m a 2nd owner?! Who knows what the last gal put this through on the regular or in storage conditions. The motor is a durable and time-tested beast, although it does sound like a small aircraft when in use (caution apartment dwellers: your neighbors + 6am breakfast or midnight snacking may not mesh well). I like the timer feature: it allows me to walk away for any length of time and not risk my cold smoothie going warm due to the blending process. If the end-goal is to leave it on for unspecified time for the purpose of warming it (like soup), I could see how this might be seen as a disadvantage.

Virtually Indestructable!

We used this product for 17 months in our coffee bar and it got a great deal of use. We had no problems with it and it just keeps going and going. Great for commercial or personal use (for those who like frozen drinks at home or to entertain).
