Are you planning for a picnic? A long trip? Maybe a day at the park or a ball game? Consider the ice chest on wheels as your travel companion. The larger size ice chests come in an array of colors and styles, with thick insulation to keep iced beverages cold for up to 5 days. They are available in Gatorade Orange, Coleman Icey Blue and White, or Igloo Ice Blue and White, the coolers come in sizes through 55, 60, 70 and 100 quarts.
These ice chests will hold a lot of soda and a lot of food. Ice packs are recommended over ice, because the sharp edges of ice can actually cut the interior insulation. The insulation is advertised as thick, up to 2 inches. It is protected by plastic interior lining that theoretically could be cut and then allow water to wet the insulation, causing stinky mold and mildew. The plastic actually wipes out clean with soap and water, which makes it convenient.
For workers on the go to and from construction sites, coolers that include a fast flow faucet can be filled with ice and lemonade to quench the thirst on a hot summer afternoon. Cups are not included, but recommended unless someone wants the men drinking straight out of the spigot. They probably wouldn’t complain, just as long as their drink is cold.
Heavy duty wheels allow larger coolers to be rolled around and actually function as a cart. When the coolers are filled with up to nearly 100 cans of soda and ice, you probably won’t want to carry them. Extendable legs and a fold down pull handle allow some models to be pulled along and then set up off the floor. At expos, these are great for keeping drinks cool through the day at a trade show or similar event. At sporting games, the only bells and whistles that are probably necessary are bottle top openers that are included on some models. These will not only open the bottle, but catch the bottle lid, much like old time pop bottle openers that were installed on every horizontal refrigerated soda machine located in every corner mom and pop shop across America. For the party goers who bring the ice chests full of ice and want the bigger sized one, there are extra-large ice chests on wheels for trundling that ice chest full of ice and beverages to the beach. The wheeled ice chests work only moderately well on the loose sand.
Today, there’re now more than 15000 shops in US where you is can buy an Igloo ice cooler. In fact, today around 75% of all households in the USA will have one model or another of Igloo’s ice coolers with them to enjoy outdoor picnics. So being able to keep food or drinks cool during the longer time for people with Igloo ice cooler at home will never be a problem. Ice coolers are useful in many circumstances such as the following;
- When working outside
- Fishing trips
- Keeping frozen items from the store cold
- Road Trips
If you do not already own one, then now is the time to buy an ice cooler. They come in different sizes and colors, so you can buy the one that suits your lifestyle. Personally, I like my ice cooler with wheels because I often work outside alone and it is hot here so I need to keep hydrated. Here is a good mode of Igloo ice cooler.
Marine 25 Quart
This particular model can hold up to 23 liters and measures a mere 20” long by 11.25” wide and 13.13” high. This has more than ample space to allow you to keep 36 cans of soda or beer inside. But you will need to reduce this figure slightly if you want to keep food (sandwiches) and ice in yours as well.
As the name suggests this particular model is one that can be used when you go fishing on your boat. Including in this particular model you will find it comes with a built in fishing ruler. Also you will find that the lid can support up to 136kg (300lbs) of weight. As this ice chest will be out in the sun quite a lot the outside has been coated in a special UV treatment and is white so it doesn’t fade so badly.
Igloo ice Cooler Replacement Parts
You will not have to concern yourself with replacing the whole unit in the future rather just the part that is broken such as the drain plug which has come off when taking it out of your vehicle. The ice coolers are so robust that the chances are you will never need to replace anything on them. But if you do break any of the handles or other parts, you can easily buy the parts from online stores like Amazon and do the repairs yourself, which is much cheaper than buying a new one.
