    Question

    I've got a customer about to purchase a new 2 door reach in freezer. Can you gentlemen (and ladies) give your honest opinions about quality, reliability and service issues?
    I personally am leaning towards a Traulsen, except for the possibility of the electronic controller giving problems and higher cost of replacement parts. She has a quote on a Continental. I prefer a ref. system with a TXV which I know McCall, True and this Continental don't have.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Freezer

    Look at Delfield. Only thing I don't like on some of their cabinets is the compressor on top, where it's hot in the kitchen.

    I think Curtis has the best by far and away. I've taken out all the electronics on Delfield freezers due to their unreliable characteristics and rediculous prices. I end up replacing them with good old generic mechanical parts...works like a charm every time.

    Probaly better on top in most applications, less likely to get dirty and easier to work on. That being said I've only seen a few Delfield freezers in our parts and they had several issues in first 2 years including compressor changes. Luckily, we don't do much of the reach-in stuff so I can't give an honest opinion on the best.

    Sure about McCall? I service over 150 of them and they all have TXV. Maybe it's cause they are older.

    txv systems last way longer than captube systems, but if you should get a captube system get a true freezer,the compressors are located at the bottom of the unit,its the same parts,compressor,tstat,time clock as traulsen and is a lot less in price also better looking.
