Great beer fridge

Have set the fridge on four, works very well at that temp. I have put a frame over the fridge which keeps out direct sunlight, works very well. It sits in the back of my bt50 and used as a beer fridge. Show details ·  1

Great bit of kit

Thought it would be way too big but for the 85l of fridge, it takes up as much as any other top opening fridge. Fits into the setup perfectly. Customer service is on point, always extremely fast and very happy to help! Will keep me coming back for all my future builds! Show details ·  1

Excellent fridge!

I bought this fridge for my VW Kombi camper. It arrived fast. All the details and instructions were correct. It was an easy installation. I had to swap the door hinge side over so I simply followed the instructions. It’s a very quiet fridge with great volume for its dimensions. I’m happy to have it in my camper and it’s been running really well on my back up battery using hardly any power, and keeping beers and food cold.
Recommended. Show details ·  1

Doesn't miss a beat

We have used the 85 for a trip to Darwin from Melbourne and it kept our food crisp and fresh along with our drinks cold. Handled all the off road corrugations just fine. We have the external cage which is great but needs sharp edges knocked off and locktight on the screws for off roading.
Overall its performing very well. Show details ·  1

One of the best upright fridges only

I started using Busman Fridges in my builds about 26 months ago and must admit that I am very happy with the product. The first build using the Bushman fridge is in a vehicle continuously travelling into remote Australia that has already clicked over 120,000 km with the fridge running continuously since installed without any issues.
The product is well designed and engineered and outshines many of it's competitors that I used over many years. Show details ·  1

Good fridge works well

Works well, I have taken up to Cape York and it handled the many corrugations, the only problem I faced was the door dropping slightly when closing. Show details ·  1

Hi. I am considering replacing a compressor fridge in my houseboat with a Bushman DC85X. I have a Victron solar setup. The current fridge only runs on 240 so the plug is for a 240 v power point. The Bushman comes with an Anderson Plug, how do I connect it to run on both 240 & solar please?

I think DC85x should be a good fridge. I have DC130X which struggles a bit with our hot climate, i think they run same compressor.

Thanks. I am just trying to work out how to actually plug it in ….. the connection on the fridge is an Anderson plug but the point on my Victron inverter is a 240 v point

G,day,
Wondering if a 20amp toggle/cut off switch is absolutely vital? Would a 15amp switch be sufficient? Also do I need a cut off switch if my fridge is wired through a fuse board. Could I simply remove the 15amp fuse as a way of isolating power from the fridge. Therefore Eliminating the need for a cut off switch?
Sorry if this has already been discussed.
Thanks in advance,
Burnsy

Hi. Is is safe to turn the fridge off when not in use or does it do damage turning it on and off all the time? Thanks.

Hi Dan, best thing to do is cut power to the fridge completely, dry the inside with a towel, then leave the door open so it does not get mouldy. It is fine to keep it off. Cheers, Tommy
