Fantastic

published

Loving the fridge, running well on solar. Only thing it arrived with a dint in the door. Found after unwrapping plastic. Saving on gas now. Temperature is good on low settings.

Purchased in December 2018 for $2,000.00.

Best fridge around

published

Only uses 2 amps on 24 volts. Well less than 50% cycle.That is in winter/spring. I will measure power use over summer and post here. I still can’t believe a fridge of this size only needs this amount of power to run. Used in shack for weekends and holidays. Replaced a full size gas fridge that used 4 x 45 kg gas battles a year.
Shelving design excellent and having a big freezer section is a bonus. The staff at Bushmans were a pleasure to deal with, they know they have the best products so they don’t have to hard sell.

Perfect off grid fridge

published

Perfect for our off grid 12 volt set up. Can't believe how big the freezer is and freezes perfectly and so quiet when running,and users so little power for its size. It's as good as any 240 volt fridge I've owned. To operate as efficiently as it does on 12v Dc still blows me away

Melissa Jasked

We've just bought a 190 litre DC-L series & are using it in an off-grid house. It's freestanding in an open plan room with good cross breezes & ventilation, current ambient temp is approx 31 deg. What's the best number on the settings dial to start at? I don't want to turn it all the way to 7 if I don't need to.

Maybe 5 if hot. We run fridge on 4 most days depends on how full fridge is. Freezer though is ok for meats and meals not ice cream and bread and milk. I dont know why!!!

Freezer can go to -10. Ice cream doesn't stay hard. Did put a litre of milk on top of other frozen food, 3 weeks later not frozen BUT not off either!

My freezer temp is around the 13.5 when not being opened. Freezing of fish, red meat and ice is as good as you would want. I have had ice cream at the back of the freezer and it was ok, not rock hard but still frozen.

Hi, the freezer compartments in our DC upright fridges are calibrated to sit around -12º. This a a fine freezing temperature for short to medium term use. If you want to deep freeze things for long term storage you would need a deep freezer which can go to -18º to -2º. A deep freezer will use more power so they are not as well suited to mobile and offgrid low power situations. Thanks!

Sorry we dont measure individual appliances. We only have a small solar system 4 panels.

Aidan, I have a 285L and the maximum reading I have was 2.4 amps at 24 volts which equates to 4.8 amps at 12 Volts

I have a 285L which draws 4 to 4.5 amps at 12 volts
