A great second freezer and very economical on gas.
The best purchase ever. I use mine as a freezer at home, iam completely off grid for the last 32 years. Have always had a two door gas fridge freezer, with the extra 62 litres of freezer space I have now I am one happy lady. I only purchased this early this year and as it turns out I should of had one many years earlier. By putting only frozen things in there, not opened much as it is the second freezer to my fridge I got exactly 35 days out of a 9 kg gas bottle. Iam now running a 45 kg bottle and am expecting no less than 5 months plus. Very happy and have passed my views onto other people living the same life style as me. I would expect to turn it up a notch in the very hot weather, I live in south east Queensland . Extremely happy with this very affordable product. Kerry Munro.

Has to be the worst product I have ever bought in my life it never went to start with probably the l
I bought this thing in all good faith thousand dollars for what a piece of metal that doesn't get cold never did now it doesn't work at all and you wonder why people buy Ingles and you have the audacity to say that you're Australian I don't think so mate I even rang the company ask them what I could do they said shake it about bang it on the floor and it should be good well like a [Word Removed] I did this nothing happened of course accepted the lid fell off and broke I'm thoroughly disgusted I probably won't buy anything Australian for the rest of my life
we use our Bushman primarily as a extended camp Freezer & 2nd freezer at home, never quite know the exact temp inside. All settings seem to be too cold to run as a fridge. Will freeze beer overnight. sometimes I shut it off overnight, if keeping drinks in it,
took it on a recent Cape trip & didn't run for 2 days while driving, packed really well, then fired her back up when we settled in camp, all goodies still frozen.
also able to re-establish my ice blocks overnight for the boat esky.
First item I pack
At home on 240or gas it is great. I have found that in the car traveling you can't keep it level. Also I have found unless perfectly level it struggles. It is the best accessory you can have on extended trips and I use this type of item a lot. Would love to have a way for 12 volt car travel leveling.
gas fridges way to go

Awesome fridge/ freezer!
I purchased this for a recent week on fraser island. It's built really solid with HEAVY insulation. Ran as a freezer the whole week without issue and never dropped temp. I also left it off for the 8 hour trip home and everything stayed frozen. You know the insulation is thick when that happens!
Used on island 3 months Capricorn group Queensland
Three months of food and veg and on occasion froze fish overnight all on gas. We were first to get ours on the coast and people who saws it in action now have them also. Leaves other portable freezers for dead, and this years of experience talking. We use the freezer October, November and December.
Works in Cairns
My mate has one of these and has been using it in Cairns for the last 2 years. Really good for a Gas fridge. Gets down to about -15 degrees at night and then holds that during the day. Doesn't use it on 12V, just 240V at home and Gas when away.
