Bode Ice Arena Buys New Zamboni Machine

At nearly $125,000, a brand new Zamboni machine was delivered to Bode Ice Arena on Tuesday morning.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) At nearly $125,000, a brand new Zamboni machine was delivered to Bode Ice Arena on Tuesday morning.

It was delivered via tractor-trailer after a nearly seven-day trip from southern California.

The electric powered Zamboni will replace the propane powered one Bode has used since 1990.

"The electric machines, they're better, they're more efficient and they're actually safer," Recreation Facilities Manager Chuck Kempf said.

The machine is painted black and yellow to match the high school hockey team that plays there.

The facility's budget and the Bode Fund helped pay for the new machine.
