The fridge the pros use.
10 years old. Almost completely silent still. Works perfectly, always has. Tough, reliable and bench mark for the serious camper and fishermen. Do yourself a favour, don’t bother with the rest, buy the best.
Purchased in August 2010.
Truly worth every bit of my hard earned $$$$
I've had Waeco it was the CF80 from memory and although it performed well, I don't know how many times I replaced the latches and hinges and the lid once! And it wasn't from abuse either. So I ended up selling it at a loss and purchased the Engel MT80FP yes it was more expensive but at the end of the day it just works and continually does so, no more broken hinges or latches no bowing lid, my only complaint is the noise from Engels compressor I could barley hear the one on the Waeco but when the one on my Engel kicks in you defiantly know it, m...ine is the single zone model reason being I had two mates that purchased the combi unit and they weren't to impressed with the performance on the fridge side. At the end of the day you get what you pay for I have no idea what the new Waeco CFX fridges are like so I can't comment on those but for me now and into foreseeable future it's Engel for me
Cant believe how well made this is.
My journey in compressor fridges started with a Waeco. It was in frustration that I purchased this Engel Combi unit. What a comparisson, the Engels operation has been flawless. I havnt had one single issue with it. Its built tougher, The bag has a pocket, the kids can sit on it, in short this is the Fridge I should have stumped up for initially and paid the extra $300 bucks for. I have absolute confidence that I will recieve many years service from this unit. I know this Waeco/Engel argument continues add nauseum but having stumped up my hard e...arned on both its the Engel by TKO. You do need to realise that there is one compressor in this fridge so when you buy a combi you loose flexability. In short the Freezer will always be that unlike the other units. The combi suits us and having cold ice in your drinks..................well its the business. I dont work for Engel nor am I interested in infantile debates about what fridge anybody selected I have purchased both, still own both and strongly prefer the Engel as a portable fridge. My 80 Combi is a beauty, Its Bulletproof, The sawafuji swing motor is noiser in Comparisons with Danfoss BD 35 and BD 50 Compressors used in other fridges. My enquiries also reveal a working life many years beyond their quiter rivals.

Hi I have a older 80L about 15 yo can I put the devider in it to make it fridge one side and freezer the other side. Kind regards
Honestly some of these comments are just laughable. Everyone thinks they’re high and mighty when they are actually just a tad ignorant and self involved. Brilliant fridge, and the hardcore campers and fishermen will testify to this. Mine is 10 years old and still almost silent.... not sure what’s wrong with yours folks.
