Very happy

Bought a new fridge to replace an old one handed down to me. The old one lasted nearly 20 years. The new one is so much quieter and uses a lot less power. I chose to go with bushman again because I could still use the extension collar and high lid, which suited me because i use the different sizes regularly. The team at Bushman were extremely easy to deal with over the phone and it arrived the day after i ordered it! I also wanted to support an aussie company. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a new fridge Show details ·  1

Happy fridge owner

The fridge was scratched in transit to me but there was no arguments - it was rapidly replaced. Great service. Fridge is very quiet compared to another one I have. Seems to be very efficient on power use too. Show details ·  1

Great equipment, great service. Couldn't recommend enough

Bought the Bushman Original SC35-52, arrived very promptly, and it's been running unreal since I installed it in my BT-50. Had 2 separate technical electrical questions via email and the staff there responded very quickly with the answers I was looking for. What more could you ask for? Show details ·  1

Best fridge hands down

I've had my bushman fridge sine 2001, and it's time I wrote my 2nd review about this wonderful bit of gear. They truly are the best fridge on the market. Whist I have looked after it it has been punished in extreme temps and over some of the harshest roads and never once failed. I can not rate this product highly enough. A friend of mine has one of the original ones and it still goes like it's new. Friends of mine have the Eng fridge and they are good but I truly believe the bushman is a better product. Show details ·  1

Our first Bushman Fridge

I recently purchased a Bushman car fridge, got to try it out on our trip to the east coast the last ten days, Really good fridge, very low power usage; I was able to run the fridge on wet and cloudy days with no concerns about using too much battery power. Plenty of room to keep everything cold (including the beer!), and great setup with the 3 storage baskets -easy to access all the food without any problems.
Very happy with the fridge and highly recommend Bushman fridges. Show details ·  1

This fridge/freezer changes everything

I got 35 hrs on -10°C without starting the car or connecting the 200w solar blanket. About 4 days with the fridge set to -2°C. I wanted to buy from an Aussie company and I've not been disappointed. If you have solar, you have everything you need to do some serious remote camping while keeping your drinks and perishables as cool as you would at home. I love my Bushman fridge!!! Show details ·  1

Hey Tommy. I've tried flicking the override switch and any settings on the main display. I've also unplugged and plugged back in all cables running to the control panel and still displays HI.

Bushman Fridges
Bushman Fridges   DM   

Hi Liam, You might need to turn the fridge off and let it warm up for a few hours, as HI indicates the fridge is too cold.
Before you turn it back on, put the override switch in the OFF position, and make sure the set temperature is in celsius.
