Hey BC what power does it draw  ???

Hey mate - sorry for the late reply...
Just saw your post..

I went out and had a look at the back of it... 

It only mentions the 240vt side of the equation - and says 22watts...    Seems very low usage to me??

I also saw a Coleman logo and address on the plate..

Nice.....    We have been camping with this thing a couple of times now; and also use it at home 'cordless' ... 

Our van has 2 x Caframo fans - but our Aldi-Coleman is truly one of those designs that really works very well and is very powerful and efficient....    Can't recommend these units highly enough...

 :cheers:

Anyone got their recovery tracks?  We got their awning last time, and it's great

Went to Aldi in kilsyth today and purchased a small hand axe (38cm (380mm) long, 600g. head) branded workzone.
Looks a real lot like a Fiskars one.
$19.99c.
The cutting edge is so blunt I could use it for a hammer.
Nothing a grinder won't fix I s'pose.
No, I'm not looking at the back of the head.
And the groove in  the back edge of the blade is supposed to be for pulling nails is it?
Any previous ones I've had were just for cutting, maybe use the back of the head to hit stuff with, e.g. tent pegs.

I have the track they are big. Used them once on some very soft sand and they worked without being damaged.

Don't get the mattress. I just spent the last month on one that looks almost the same, like most air mattresses your bum hits the floor and your legs feel like they are in the air.

Yes I bought one really cheap a few weeks after it went on sale last time and am impressed with it. Not sure how long the battery lasts, which is probably a good thing as I have never noticed it but i love the light output....

I bought them a while ago and have just replaced them with the new Tred Pro's.  The Aldi ones work, but are really heavy and I have managed to wear down the knobs on them on the only time I used them on Fraser a few years ago, despite being really careful not to spin my wheels.

I would surmise that they do what they are supposed to but the plastic compound they used is very different (more rigid) to that used in Treds / Maxtrax and as a result they have to be designed in a different way resulting in a heavier product that doesn't seem to have the same levels of wear resistance.

Certainly they are not a don't buy, but with as with most things be aware of their limitations and if they don't concern you for your use case then they should be fine; you get what you pay for I suppose....

Would the $99 Battery be a decent starting point for my Camper? 40Ah AGM.

Is the Solar panel priced well or is it to risky for that sort of stuff to go Aldi?

40Ah isn't going to go far. I think that you are probabl better off searching for a $200ish special on ebay and getting 100Ah or so.
Solar panels I can't really comment on but atleast if they don't work you can get a moneyback guarantee from Aldi.

Aldi gear is generally pretty good and rebranded major gear for there own brands........i.e. their fridge is / was made by Waeco.
