Hino launches versatile fridge/warmer unit

Hino has launched the Centre Console Fridge/Warmer unit for its 500 and 700 Series truck ranges and is now available from Hino dealers nationwide.

“Sawafuji Electric Company Ltd of Japan has designed and manufactured this unit exclusively for Hino,” Greg Bleasel, Hino Australia's Divisional Manager Product Support and Business Development, said. “As a genuine accessory, the fridge/warmer unit is fully compatible with all Hino 500 and 700 Series models.

The 11-litre capacity fridge/warmer unit sits in the place of the centre seat and has a double lid and dual cold and hot zones, enabling it to simultaneously operate both hot and cold.

“The ability to keep food and drink chilled, and other food warm in the same unit is a real bonus for drivers,” Bleasel said.

The fridge/warmer operates on 24 volts and comes with a fully integrated wiring kit, eliminating auto electrical work for the truck. The unit's cooling range is from 10 degrees to 0 degrees C; while warming range is from room temperature to 55 degrees.

The fridge/warmer also has a removeable partition to adjust the capacity of the cold and hot sections.
