Best fridge freezer there is

published

Brilliant., Living in a rainforest with its moist environment my last fridge didn't last long. The electric circuitry couldn't cope. At the repair shop I asked the mechanic which fridge freezer he repaired the. Least..the rest is history. And I love the simplicity the size the interior light and how efficiently it works.
NO electronic circuitry to break down.
Works almost to well, have to. Keep it on low.

Purchased in at Bushman on line for $2,500.

Hi Avril, thank you for writing such a detailed review. Hopefully this assists people who are in a similar situation about the benefits of an lpg gas fridge when living off-grid. Let us know if we can assist down the track. All the Best. BUSHMAN

Amazing fridge

published

Very happy with this fridge. Easy delivery and set up. We use it at our weekender, so only put it on when we are there. Chills within a few hours. Highly recommend this whisper quiet fridge.

Thanks Colin. A little tip for you if you only use the fridge sometimes. You can take the little tin cover off from the burner and cover the burner with a rag, so a spider or month etc doesn't get in there when it is not being used. Cheers, Tommy.

Bushmans fridge game changer

published

Great size unit for my family of 3, adult 2 x 10yr olds. The service was amazing and transport to a rural town was no problem. I did order the Matt black and was a bit surprised a white fridge turned up however, I was too excited to have it so the white has grown on me. Would definately use these guys again. Lovely and cold. No regrets

Excellent off-grid fridge choice

published

We are very pleased with our choice of Bushman’s fridge. It is an impressive, off grid option as it provides near full-size fridge and freezer space. It is well made and appears to have high quality components. The responsive and genuine service was also impressive. I have no hesitation in recommending this fridge.

Purchased in for $2,000.

Absolutely perfect!

published

Absolutely perfect! We are off grid and this was the best way to conserve our solar in the winter months when our solar is stretched. The option to have it use our solar in summer and use gas in the winter is the absolute best. We started with the fridge temp on the coldest setting and because it is so efficient we have had to dial it back. Being gas there is no noise and the quality is great. Being able to change the side the door opens was super handy. It works so much better than our 'on grid' fridge ever did. The friendliness of staff at Bushmans was also above and beyond. We live miles from civilisation so Bushman arranged to have the fridge delivered in good time and at the best price. Very very pleased to recommend!

My life got a whole lot easier

published

I purchased the 185XCD white fridge to use in our off grid holiday shack. We tossed up between the 12/24v or gas. I am so pleased we decided to go gas. The fridge was delivery promptly to our doorstep in excellent condition. We set it up and it has been awesome. We start with it on 4 and it chills down quickly then we turn it right back to 2. It stays cold and it is so quiet we don’t even hear it running even at night. Love the interior light too. I wasn’t expecting that. Love this fridge.

Fantastic Product and Service

published

We looked for 3 way fridge option for our caravan. The bushman got good reviews so we ordered the XCD100. Delivery was quick and we were kept informed every step of the way. Manual is accurate. The fridge operates as described and works well off grid.

Purchased in for $1,198.

Best decision ever

published

So far, we only used it on gas and once it was turned on (very simple) we put in few frozen bottles in the freezer and it cooled down pretty fast. There's lots of room in both; fridge & freezer and the light in the fridge was a pleasant surprise especially since we’re off the grid and have no power. We kept the temperature on one third and it was perfect, no frozen fruit or veggies, just right! Customer services was second to none! We love the fridge/freezer and we would highly recommend it!

Hi Zoki! Thank you for leaving a kind review. There is a small AA battery pack on the rear of the fridge which powers the interior LED. The batteries will probably last for many, many years. All the Best - Tommy . BUSHMAN.

XCD100 (100L)

I’ve been informed that the XCD100 isn’t suitable for caravans, yet there are reviews which dispute this. Are they or are they not suited to caravans ?

Hi Greg, we build and certify our XCD series of gas fridges for freestanding use only (not built in or for mobile use). They are designed for off-grid kitchens; farm houses, bush shacks, weekenders, sheds etc. Cheers.

Talk to the actual real manufacturers in Reservoir, but specs are clear, this model is for fixed location such as off grid homes like mine. They have other models that suit your needs.

Hi Alan, we no longer fit out gas fridges to anything mobile - caravans, rv's, etc. They are designed for freestanding use in an offgrid situation. For mobile use we always recommend a 12V compressor fridge nowadays. Cheers, Tommy.

what’s the rationale for not installing (say) the xcd 1003 way gas fridge in a caravan?

Bushman XCD Series

Details

The Bushman XCD Series offers reliable LPG gas fridges designed for off-grid living that are cost effective.

The smaller gas fridges in this Bushman series are suitable for beach houses, sheds, houseboats and other off-grid dwellings where space is at a premium. The models with a larger capacity (185L and 280L) can be used on farms, holiday houses and as longer-term camping fridges.

About the Bushman XCD Series gas fridges:

  • As you don’t need access to electricity to power these upright fridges, they’re cheaper to run in the long-term than their electric counterparts.
  • Available in three capacities: 100L, 185L and 280L. The 185L and 280L fridges are available in two finish options; white or stainless steel.
  • Option of built-in or freestanding use for the 185L and 280L models, while the smaller 100L unit is freestanding only.
