Q & A
Customer Questions
I would like to get one of the insulated bins for hauling ice cream on a route-multiple stops in a day. Would the PB1545 or PB24 work best for this use? Is one better insulted and/or easier to get in and out of?
These models are both equipped to store and transport frozen items. The PB1545 is primarily designed for fishing/marine applications, however, so the PB24 may be a better option for your needs.
