ENGEL CELEBRATES 50 YEARS AS THE LEADING PROVIDER
OF PORTABLE FRIDGE-FREEZERS IN AUSTRALIA
In 1962, the Engel legend was born. The first Engel fridges were used by Australian travellers and made to stand up
to our tough outback conditions. And they have passed every test! No other fridge-freezer can do what Engel has
done for the past 50 years.
Engel fridges are known for their strength and reliability. From corrugated roads to mountain terrain, and the heat of
the Australian sun, an Engel will keep working. But what really makes Engel stand out from the rest is its simplicity.
Because when you’re out in the bush, you want to know you have a product you can rely on. Engel fridge-freezers
are trusted for their superb performance and longevity. And the proof is in the testimony of those who’ve told us their
stories of fridges dropping off the backs of trucks and utes - or being involved in car rollovers and collisions - and still
performing!
Engel is celebrating by releasing a strictly limited edition 50th anniversary 40 litre
model. With the latest Sawafuji electronics including built in battery monitor and
digital thermostat control, the LIMITED EDITION Gold Engel fridge freezer will
become a must have for anyone with an appreciation for quality. The limited edition
gold fridge freezer comes complete with an anniversary edition transit bag.

ENGEL’s World Famous
Sawafuji Swing Motor
Permanent
Magnet
Unique to Engel, this purpose built
compressor is purposely designed for
portable refrigeration. The Sawafuji Swing
Motor is a true reciprocating compressor;
and is unique in its simplicity - it has only
one moving part.
Core
Pole
The piston connects to an electro dynamic
device which is powered by the use of
magnetic fields. This technology means
no need for bearings, cranks or con-rods;
and less moving parts means less chance
of failure. The compressor is highly efficient
and effective. The Sawafuji Swing Motor
does not need to perform a full stroke on
start up unlike many rotary type compressors;
meaning it doesn’t have a high start up
current draw. Low friction loss adds to its
efficiency. The Motor operates at 30 degree
angles and on rough corrugated tracks
without losing any efficiency, making it the
most effective choice of motor for Engel.

HODGY’S
TIPS
GEARING UP FOR YOUR TRIP
Get the right gear to suit your needs
While we all look for that new
buzz in life and the chance to
find something new, exciting,
unbelievable, beautiful or just different
in this big country; the journey can
take you to some amazing places.
I’ve been so fortunate in my life
to have experienced some really
special, nature rich environments,
but they’re very rarely next to the
highway or in the park down the
road. Generally, the more effort
you put into travel and greater the
distance you get between you and
suburbia, the more special the whole
experience.
David Hodge aka
Hodgy, appears
Nationally at
shows and events
presenting lure
casting tricks,
sharing his fishing
knowledge and
tips.
These days, remote travel doesn’t
mean you may have to live off jerky,
muesli bars, Goannas, Grubs and
water. Camp cooking books and
adventure DVDs by legends such as
Malcolm Douglas, who was and still
is my hero, and companies such as
Hillbilly Camping gear, who have a
200 recipe camp oven book, take all
the guess work out so amazing meals
can be whipped up with confidence.
Long trips mean meat such as lamb,
beef, pork and chicken roasts need
to be kept frozen - and obviously an
Engel fridge is the best choice. But for
trips that are only 3 or 4 days long,
the new generation of Poly eskies
are as good as ice boxes get and
keep things more than cold enough.
Inner and outer skins, bungs, hinges,
handles and seals are all top notch
and built to take a real flogging. Even
someone as “heavy” as me can use
it as a seat without worrying about
warping or twisting it.
Not everywhere sells block ice, and
I tend to make mine in the freezer at
home with old 2 litre juice bottles,
or ice cream containers and put a
few on the bottom. Beers that need
to be dead cold are then nestled on
top of the block ice and a couple of
bags sprinkled amongst them, and
12
then tucker on top. This lasts much
longer with the additional blocks. In
fact I’ve got up to a week out of the
above system. Ice slurries for keeping
fish fresh are noticeably slower to
melt, considering the air seals are so
effective, and the inners of the skins
are void of air pockets or bubbles.
Obviously, less expensive usually
means lesser quality, so that $50
special at the super market is going
to cost you much more in ice and
wasted food if the inevitable happens
and the food goes off. Confidence
in your equipment is as big a
concern as any other part of travel
and camping, and apart from your
vehicle, water and swag, the most
important thing to make sure is up
to scratch is the refrigeration or food
cooling system. Once a day, tilt the
esky up so that any water gravity
feeds towards your “bung hole” and
drains. This will make sure ice is at its
coldest. Water will melt ice quicker
so it’s important to get rid of it every
day.
So while my Engel Eclipse is a
valuable part of my kit for long
term travel, my Engel esky is just as
important for the shorter trips and for
keeping fish in slurries. Often both
are taken if the main ambition is to
top up on top class fillets for the table
at home. Only fish that are needed
for the immediate future are taken,
and fish that have been frozen for
more than around two weeks, in my
opinion, are inferior eating. This also
means that I “have to” go fishing
when the fillets run out too! Ahhhh,
the things we have to do hey!
Get out and enjoy this country, and
remember to gear up properly, stay
safe and tread lightly.
Dave (The Barefoot
Fisherman) Hodge
TRAVELLING
WITH YOUR ENGEL
Travelling Tips
just a few. The main choice with an
Engel is whether to use it as a fridge
or a freezer.
For safety have your Engel secured
to your vehicle with an approved
fixing device (see accessories).
Have an auto electrician check that
your accessory plug is the correct
amperage and if your outlet is at
the rear of your vehicle ensure that
at least a 6mm of cable has been
installed.
FRIDGE OR FREEZER
Ensure your Engel has plenty of
ventilation. Place your Engel facing
one side of your vehicle so that other
equipment can’t block the ventilation.
Be aware that your vehicle battery
may not provide enough power to
start your vehicle after running your
fridge/freezer for extended periods
(see accessories).
TRIP PREPARATION
A quick getaway or the trip of a
lifetime with your Engel means you
want to be able to throw some
food in the Engel and head off at a
moments notice.
For a short break the amount of
planning required is usually minimal
- just grab some gear and food and
you’re off! The spontaneity almost
says no planning required. If you
have forgotten something it doesn’t
matter, either grab it at the shop or
go without it. The reverse happens
for the big trip as you could be miles
from anywhere and the detail in the
planning will really pay off. The most
important thing is to make a list a
few weeks before you head off and
pre pack as much gear as possible
and compartmentalise everything
in storage bags or containers so
you can find everything easily - eg.
kitchen gear in one container, dry
food in another.
There are a number of options on
how to keep your food on a trip.
Personal preferences on food type,
space in your vehicle, whether you’re
travelling in a group, length of your
trip and availability of shops to name
When travelling on a long trip you
may wish to keep your Engel as a
freezer and utilise an esky or ice box
to keep your days food. Use your
Engel to freeze ice bricks and then
transfer to the cooler. To maximise
freezing performance pack meat
into meal size containers and store,
ensuring adequate airflow around
each container.
TRAVELLING WITH FRIENDS
If you’re travelling with a friend,
who has an Engel, and you are
cooking meals together, you can
plan menus so that you can run one
Engel as a fridge and the other as
a freezer - or even better, one of the
latest technology combination fridgefreezers, for those who have the
space to carry the MT60F-Combi or
the MT80F-Combi. Separate fridge
and freezer compartments make both
units a breeze to operate.
EXTENDED STAYS
If you’re planning to stay in the
one spot, store your Engel in cool
locations; preferably a shady place
were there is a breeze. Having an
Engel transit bag also assists in
the efficiency of the unit in extreme
temperatures.
If you’re using a generator make sure
the leads are kept dry. You can turn
off the generator overnight safely
without damaging the food as long
as you don’t open the unit too often.
FOOD STORAGE
When packing your vehicle always
keep in mind things that you need
most frequently. Have a kitchen box
and your Engel conveniently placed
so you have ready access to food.
Also ensure that your Engel and other
storage items are secure in case of
an accident. Engel has a range of
sliding and locking systems that suit
most needs.

PORTABLE POWER
FOR YOUR ENGEL
ENGEL BATTPAKS
28 & 56 AMP HOUR
The Engel Battpak is a portable deep cycle
dual battery system for powering your Engel
Portable Fridge - Freezer and Accessories, in

•The BATTPAK is designed for use primarily with the
range of ENGEL portable fridge-freezers, but can
be used with almost all portable fridge-freezers and
a large variety of 12 volt appliances.
•The BATTPAK is designed to be charged via the 12
volt charge lead supplied.
•Press the MOMENTARY button on the control panel
of the BATTPAK and the volt gauge will indicate its

Optional Accessories: 12VDCBattcharger
The Engel 12VDCBattcharger is an electronic battery
charger designed to charge Lead Acid Batteries from
a 12 volt DC Battery. The charger uses a unique boost
charge feature, stepping up to a charge rate allowing
the auxiliary battery to properly charge and with its
voltage sensing feature ensuring the main battery
charge is not depleted while the vehicle is not running.
The12VDC Battcharger will charge your BATTPAK at up
to 10 Amps.
Charging from Charge Lead Supplied
The LED will flash when charging is in progress and
will TRICKLE charge your BATTPAK at approximately 2
to 4 Amps. The rate of charge will drop as the level of
charge increases.
Charging with 240 Volt / Solar Panels
We recommend a 6 to 8 Amp Automatic (floating and
regulated) type 240 Volt mains battery charger. You
will need to purchase a male single pole Hella plug
to replace the alligator clips supplied with the battery
charger, making sure the red lead is positive and the
black is negative. Solar Panels can be used to charge
your BATTPAK but must be regulated, with a maximum
output of 8 Amps.
Tri voltage
All Engel fridge-freezers (excluding MD14E chest &
SB47 upright) have an inbuilt tri voltage (12/24/240v)
power supply which allows you to operate from either
car accessory sockets or mains power without the need
for an adaptor.
Although Engel has the lowest power consumption of
any portable fridge/freezer on the market, operating
for extended periods off your car battery could lead to
a flat battery. Therefore alternate power sources may be
sought. If you are on the move, careful management of
your battery power can allow you to successfully enjoy
a holiday with one battery.
Options for reserve power include dual battery systems,
Engel Battpaks, solar panels or a generator.
OPTIONS
Dual battery system
This is one of the most common systems to provide backup power for your Engel.
Usually a deep cycle secondary battery is fitted that
will give hours of running time when your vehicle is
not in use. This allows your primary battery to remain
fully charged. The systems available now are generally
fully automatic so as soon as you start your engine the
secondary battery begins to charge.
Generator
When you want to stay indefinitely in the one spot
it is best to invest in a portable generator or a solar
panel system. Engel fridge-freezers have such minimal
power consumption even a small generator will do the
job. And now most of these generators are whisper
quiet and guaranteed not to annoy the neighbours.
SHX 1000 GENERATOR

RON MOON’S
OUTBACK TRAVEL TIPS
For a day trip along the beach
close to home or for a longer
journey whether that’s a year long
extravaganza
around
Australia
or the world, prior preparation
and planning will always help
you overcome any difficulties and
unplanned occurrences.
1
Ensure your vehicle battery
and the auxillary battery are
in tip top condition when you leave
on a trip so you’ll have no problems
keeping the food cool and the beer
cold in your Engel fridge. Batteries
mounted close to an exhaust or turbo
really suffer from the heat and will
need to be replaced more often!
2
3
What’s best? A solar panel kit
or a small generator? Both have
advantages and both will help keep
your Engel Fridge running when you
are stopped for days on a magical
beach or desert waterhole. Solar
panels aren’t great when its cloudy
and need to be kept pointed at the
sun to be most efficient. Generators
need to be kept supplied with fuel
and can be a little noisy but will
consistently provide more power to
the battery as well as run power tools
and a lot of other electrical equipment
apart from the Engel fridge.
4
When heading bush always
carry a jerry can of water for
both you and your vehicle. It is better
to carry water in a couple of smaller
containers than in one big one.
Never leave home without it!
Never join two snatch straps by
using a D-shackle. If one strap
breaks you’ll have a deadly missile
flying through the air, which can
easily punch through a window, sheet
metal and/or kill someone.
5
6
A good remote area first aid kit
should be in every vehicle when
you head off on a trip. There should
also be someone who knows how to
use it and preferably, someone who
has done a St Johns first aid course
(see: www.stjohn.com.au). The life
that could be saved could be yours or
your loved one.
Don’t try and save money by
taking the shoddiest set of
tyres bush. It’s not only unsafe when
you are travelling at high speeds on
bitumen and dirt roads, but in four
wheel drive country you’ll have a lot
less traction and get more punctures
– remember, 90% of punctures occur
in the last 10% of a tyre’s life. And
replacing tyres in a country town is
always dearer than buying tyres in a
major city!
7
8
Always carry basic recovery
gear – a long-handled shovel,
a jack and jacking plate, an axe,
a snatch strap and a couple of
D-shackles. Ensure the D-shackles
are rated with a ‘safe working load’
(SWL) and that your snatch strap is in
good condition.
9
Tyre
pressures
(measured
when cool) are the single most
important thing to be aware of when
four wheel driving. In a normal 4WD
vehicle with 15 to 17 inch tyres
loaded for a trip on the bitumen,
tyre pressures should be around
36psi (250kPa). On dirt roads lower
tyre pressures to around 30-32psi
(210kPa- 225kPa). When on a
rough 4WD track for the best traction
lower tyre pressures to 24-26psi
(165kPa-180kPa). When heavily
loaded for a desert crossing similar
tyre pressures will be required. On a
beach, start of at 18-20psi (125kPa140kPa). You’ll be able to go lower
if you get bogged, but be very careful
if you are down to 12psi (85kPa) or
so. Always carry a tyre gauge and a
good compressor.
10
Lastly, a satellite phone or a
HF radio, or one of those new
fangled gadgets, a satellite GPS
Messenger called, ‘Spot’ (see: www.
findmespot.net.au), will allow you to
tell people where you are and how
you are in case of an emergency.
Somebody in your group should have
one – normal mobile phones and
UHF radios very often don’t work
where 4WD adventurers go!

CAMP COOKING
WITH JO CLEWS
I’ve been cooking for almost as long
as I can remember, from standing on
a wooden box as a small girl making
butterfly cakes in my Grandmother’s
house to catering out of the back of
my old Range Rover for 50 people on
top of the Kennedy Ranges.
I write for Western 4WDer Magazine
and work in a number of regional and
remote areas of WA. Say hello when
you’re at the 4WD and Adventure
Show in Perth, Sydney or Adelaide,
where I’ll be demonstrating outback
cooking. Pick up some of my recipe
cards while you’re there - here’s a
sample to get you going!
FABULOUS FLAT BREADS
A multitude of magnificent meals can
be created from this very easy recipe.
Flat breads are simple to make and
a great alternative to carting around
loaves of bread that take up room, go
stale and get squished in the tucker
box. At about 25 cents each they’re
cheap and everyone loves them.
What’s more, they taste much better
than any shop bought bread.
You’ll need a sachet of bread mix. I
usually get a box that has four plus its
own yeast. There are various brands
available in the flour section of most
large supermarkets.
Make the dough according to the
instructions on the box for making a
handmade loaf being careful not to
make the dough too wet. I usually
don’t add all the suggested water
unless needed.
Combine the bread mix, warm water
and yeast with a butter knife in a
large bowl. Once ingredients are
combined turn mixture out onto a
floured surface and knead the dough
until it’s smooth and elastic.
Here’s a shortcut: make your flat
breads straight away and don’t
bother letting the dough rise. I’ve
never noticed much difference in the
the end result.
Divide the dough in half and roll one
half into a 20cm log. Cut it into 4cm
chunks, then repeat with the other half
so you end up with about ten small
pieces of dough.
Shape the pieces into discs and roll
flat. Most of us don’t travel around
with a rolling pin so a beer bottle or
wine bottle will do the trick.
Place the rolled dough in a large dry
frypan over medium heat. As well as
the trusty camp oven (which I wouldn’t
be without), Hillbilly make some
terrific camping frypans and cook
stands which are perfect for the job.
Cook for 2-3 minutes or until you see
little bubbles appear on the surface.
Flip on to other side and cook for
further 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the
rest of the dough until all are cooked.
Once you’ve made your bread, the
possibilities are endless. Bacon and
egg breakie wrap, cold meat and
salad lunch wrap, kebabs, cheese
toasties, smoked salmon cream
cheese and caper rollups, pizza
bases...I could go on. I’m sure you
have some great ideas of your own!
25
GETTING THE MOST
OUT OF YOUR HILLB
People often ask me to name the one
piece of kit I would never consider
going camping without. I’d have to say,
it’s a pretty tough call between my Engel
and my Hillbilly camp oven.Between
the two, I have everything I need to chill
the things that need chilling, and heat
the things that need heating. Really,
what more could a discerning camp
cook ask for?
Cooking with a Hillbilly couldn’t be
easier. The best thing is that, unlike cast
iron ovens, a Hillbilly doesn’t generally
need to be pre-heated. Pop it over some
good hot coals and you’re cooking literally!
Here are a couple of my favourite ways
to put my Hillbilly to good use.
CHEESY BEER DAMPER
BITES
Perfectly cooked damper - golden and
crunchy on the outside, soft and hot on
the inside - is a thing of great pride.
And, yes, it’s also thing of great skill as
well (as my many failures over the years
show!) My number one tip: go smaller
rather than larger. Learning this has
vastly improved my success rate!
You’ll need:
26
•
4 cups of self raising flour.
•
1 bottle or can of your favourite
beer. Aprox. 350ml.
•
100g tasty cheese cut to a small
cube.
•
1 tspn dried chives.
•
1 tbsp olive oil.
BILLY CAMP OVEN
®
What to do:
1. Measure flour into large mixing
bowl, make a well in the middle
and add the chives, oil and
cheese. Pour in the beer and mix
ingredients together with a butter
knife until combined.
2. Turn out onto a floured surface and
shape into a 3-4cm flat disc. Don’t
knead your dough as all the air will
be compressed and your finished
product will not be soft and light.
3. With a sharp knife or scone cutter,
cut dough into smallish squares or
diamonds, or circles. Place pieces
onto a tray that will fit in your camp
oven. If you are using a cast iron
oven it will need to be pre-heated,
but a Hillbilly it can be used from
cold.
4. Place a good shovelful of coals
on the ground away from the
main fire. Place your Hillbilly on
the coals with a low trivet in the
bottom, put the damper pieces in
and cover with the lid. Add a
couple of shovelfuls of coals on
top of the lid and let cook for
about 15 minutes. Because
the pieces are small it allows
for the hot air in the oven to
circulate and cook them evenly
and quickly.
5. Eat them straight from the oven
with butter, or use to sop up your
favourite stew or soup. How about
olives, feta, sun dried tomatoes or
garlic? Go crazy and come up
with a gourmet creation of your
own!
WINTER WARMING
DUMPLINGS
Who can remember Grandma making
a hearty winter stew or soup and just
before serving popping some dough
balls on the top to make fat, fluffy gravy
soaked dumplings? I certainly can, and
I for one want to keep this tradition alive.
You’ll need:
•
4 cups of self raising flour.
•
1 can or bottle of beer.
•
1 tspn dried chives.
•
1 tblspn olive oil.
What to do:
1. In a large mixing bowl add the
flour, make a well in the middle,
add the chives and oil. Pour the
beer in and with a butter knife cut
the ingredients together.
2. When the ingredients are well
combined turn out onto a floured
surface and gently shape the
dough into a log. Cut small pieces
off and shape into balls about the
size of a golf ball or smaller. This
quantity of ingredients will make
about 24 dumplings.
3. About 15 minutes before you’re
ready to serve your stew or soup,
open up the Hillbilly, place the
dough balls on the surface and
cover with the lid. Cook for about
5 minutes then remove lid and
turn
dumplings
over,
cover
and cook for remaining 10
minutes. One dumpling per
person is usually enough but they
are so darn good you may find you
will have to allow for a couple. Get
creative and have fun!
