Default 80 Ltr Engel Slide Queries

just wondering if anyone has mounted an 80 ltr engel on fridge slides..

QUESTIONS

because it weighs so much ( 33kg + 80 ltr of stuff) do i have to buy a $440 slide from black widow etc. ( because it already cost me $1800 for the fridge, and i'm a tight ass )

the only DIY slides ive found are rated to 100kg ( not enough )

is there any other options for me ? are there any other slides out there that are of a more reasonable price ? or am i just gonna get screwed price wise for a slide for my baby engel ?

any help would be appreciated

aluminium channel and roller skate wheels - countersink the heads of the screws on the channels, and put a bolt at the end of the channel to stop the wheels coming all the way out. Make it double acting so it rolls out. And stagger the wheels so alow for slack.

I can draw a picture if this made you go cross eyed lol

The Engel slide is $400 or $440 for the X Slide (slides width ways instead)
They have replaceable bearings rolling in steel channel too, not like conventional drawer slides.
Heavy duty drawer slides tough enough to take the weight that bearings and steel channel do will cost about the same as the complete Engel slide.
Another option is a floor slide with tie downs that covers the entire floor width and length. Got one in my dual cab can hold 200kg past full extension overhang, 400kg static. Bearings in steel channel too of course. Bloody love it, just roll out the lot and keep my height space too!

Big bear, I'd like that picture! I am only making one for a 40L Engel, but your idea sounds pretty good.

I have seen some pretty heavy duty slides similar to the expensive ones your avoiding in places like bunnings, for things that go under kitchen benches.

But Im skeptical about there ability to handle constant vibration whilst loaded.

Gooday, i incorperated a home made fridge slide for a 80 ltr engle in a draw unit which i made using bearings in a light duty steel frame. I dont know the way you officially tell what they are rated as but when the slide is fully extended and i stand on the slide it doesnt move. I will try to get some pics up soon. But with the draw unit and slide using second hand bits and pieces from friends it cost me under $100. bucks .Not sure how to uploads pics yet.Any help please.

With drawer slides make sure they state the rating at full extension not just the static rating when closed.

Domestic ones aren't good enough to withstand constant vibrations of off road use, they just sit in the kitchen all the time holding dead weight.

Default Home made fridge slide

I bought an old steel filling cabnet and used the drawer slides out of it for the fridge.
My father used the same thing to make his slides also.

Sealed bearings in steel channel or heavy duty industrial slides. I can get them up to 1500mm extension with just over 200kg rating at full extension at that size, the less the extension the higher the load rate obviously, they are 75mm high slides. No one wants to pay the bicky's for the right stuff though.

33kg for the fridge which won't always be full, +80lt@(approx 80kg)=113kg's. use the d.i.y slides till they die.Then worry about forking out $xxx for the 'good' slides.Just have fun doing it! (load it up with all the beer you can!) I guess at the end of the day you could always support the weight of the fridge with some sort of brace to take the strain off of the slide.Cheers,Mark.

I have mine mounted on a 1000mm 100Kg per rail, home made slide, works well.

Dont go for bunnings, they are 300+, there is a guy on eBay selling them out of tasmania for 80-110 depending on the length, search for fridge slide, he sells various lengths.

I have the 1000mm ones, the longest he sells, and I have had my fridge loaded with 2 cases of beer, a case of coke, milk, eggs, butter, wine etc, fully loaded to the hilt, and never had an issue.
I dont leave it at full extension overnight, just when getting something out of it, I get a bit rough getting beer out of it as the night progresses LOL, faultless.

having said that, I do agree with many above, it is a lot of weight sitting a long way from the car, and it does worry me sometimes.
