    Working on a deal for another trailer and it has the C-600 reefer on it. Haul a decent amount of frozen but I won’t touch ice cream. Been told it’s more comparable to the 7300 carrier. -10 is the coldest temps I’ve ever needed. I do run California periodically in the hot summer months but not solely. Anyone using a C600 running a fair amount of frozen? Thanks

    Hi! I use my C600 all the time. All range of temperatures. Ice cream? No problem!
    But there is one BUT. When it’s really hot, let say everything more than 100 F. Specifically my unit cannot keep -20. Temperature stays around -14 and -18 F at -20 set point. Same time never had problems at receiver after that, even with ice cream. I have 2017 Utility TK c600.

    that’s probably a pos utility problem not the unit

    iirc, the c600 is basically just the old sb330

    even my 200 will hold 0 into the 90s

    I have a C600. I love it, but my unit doesn't have an EGR valve however, some C600's do. I have hauled ice cream in the summer and it had no problem maintaining -20, I haul a good deal of frozen as well. Also, the C600 is equivalent to the SB230.

    It's actually like the old SB230, the C700 is like the SB330

    thought they upped the btus and then made then700 an all around bigger unit, couldn’t remember, has it been as reliable as the old sb units?

    The above units were really good units. I have had good luck so far. With the newer units you need to use a fuel additive, and change fuel filters regularly

    Haul lots of zero degrees for cold storage. Trailers aren't new but they tend to work ok at zero. The older ones, not so much. Last 2 rentals have Carrier. I like the TKs better. We have 1 700 on a Utility, it's a little quicker cooling down than the 600s.

    Thanks for the feed back and sorry for the late reply. I usually get an email notification when i get a response.

    I bought the trailer has and am very impressed with it. I come from using 7300x4 and the C600 in my opinion spanks it. One i sold had 20k hours and the other one was mid teens. My only complaint is im just not familiar with the unit so it wakes me up just because the cycles are not like a carrier. But boy are these units quiet! Thanks!
