    I have searched and read all I could find on the subject but nothing was really on point. I am interested in temperatures during transport, not while operating. I am getting ready to travel from the mountains of North Carolina to Florida. A cold front arrives tomorrow but we are not leaving until either Friday or Saturday morning. As of tomorrow the highs will not be above freezing until Sunday. That means if I load the car before we leave the QU could be in temps of 14-23 degrees Fahrenheit for two days and maybe two and a half days. Of course, I will allow it and all my other stuff to acclimate before I attempt to use them. My question is, would these temps for this period of time be bad for the QU such that I need to take a different approach?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Chuck

    Hi Chuck,

    That wouldn’t be a problem. As long as the mixer is not powered, I wouldn’t be concerned.
    Before you switch it on, make sure it gets back to ambient temperature above 0 deg C / 32 deg F, otherwise condensation might be an issue.

    Excellent! Thank you Nicola! I will be sure to let it warm up before messing with it. I sure didn’t want to be loading the car in 15 degree temps with 20 mph winds. This will make things a lot easier.

    Again, Thanks!!

    Hello!

    Is there any temperature limit, to where use Qu? For example I will be using it outside this winter with temperatures below 0°C. I’ve use it in cold weather already, without any problem, but I’m just wondering in what conditions it is advisable to use it:)

    Thanks!

    We spec it for 0-35 deg C. The biggest problem with cold is condensation due to the heat produced inside the mixer. In very dry environments you might be safe to go below 0 but we cannot guarantee correct functioning outside the specified temperature range.
