Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SixSlinger Nice product but doesn't fit opening.
This item is what it says it is. It's built well and should keep us cool. The problem is however...the opening that attaches to the roof's opening does not match up. On ordering this item, no choice is made for different sizes on the bottom of the unit. The cooler is the same brand and size as what we have that has worn out after 14 years. So buyer beware of this problem. So, we have it on our roof but have not been able to attach it yet. We are constructing an adapter so it will fit properly. We've loved the old one up until it started to rust out. If it had fit or give us size options on the downward draft fitting, we would give this high marks. Just be careful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Bushings disintegrated after 12 months 2 weeks. No help from Home Depot or Champion
Paid $1000 for this to be installed. Worked fine for 12 months and 2 week. Then the fan stopped. Looked at it and the bushings, and they've disintegrated.
Called Home Depot, "Sorry, we don't service what we sell. Call Champion" (ie: we don't stand behind the products we sell)
Called Champion, "Sorry, we don't honor anything after 12 months" (ie: we don't stand behind the product we make and sell, after 12 months and 1 minute)

We ordered a swamp cooler, when we got it home and uncovered it, it was damaged I called home depot and told them, explained I would keep it but felt I should get money off the cost, after words they did give me a gift certificate. So I am happy with home depot. And the swamp cooler works great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ernie Paint covering is normal paint without any rust inhibitor primer to stop rust..
Since this uses water as the cooling agent, a person with any brains would realize that it should be painted with rust inhibitive primer, then a rust inhibitive paint....... BUT IT'S NOT.
EVERY part is metal, which rusts. The screws are the first to go. Then the very thin supports for the upper frame.
This thing rusted out so fast it was astonishing.
The next time I buy one I will primer the entire thing with Zinsser rust inhibitor primer, then coat it with Rustoleum rust inhibitor paint.
THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE AT THE FACTORY.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tumlin works very well
I have a 1300 sq foot area to cool and it works very well. I wish it had listed all that it came with it (belt, motor pulley, motor mounting bracket and motor attaching clamps). I ordered these all separate as everything would be at least a week out and I wanted to have everything here to make the installation. Very well built and works great.

Been running this unit a couple of weeks now, and it seems to work well and certainly does the job.
