Answer: 
This unit is designed for use with 1/3, 1/2 or 3/4 HP motor. Hence, the size you choose will set your price. Motors average $70 and up. You DO NOT need to purchase a "motor kit" as the pulley and cord are included with the unit. Motors can be found in the same location as the cooler itself in the store. I hope this help.

Answer: 
The unit comes with media pads, the only thing you will need to purchase is a motor. This is an evaporative cooler that works best in climates with low humidity. Stacey@Essick

Answer: 
Glad to be of assistance.... the 8-inch media, as it is called, is... instead of using that thin fuzzy stuff like on the other coolers, this is like a 8-inch cardbord that the water flows down. It is a much more longer lasting design. Thou it is much more expensive, the cooling is much better. You end result will be that you should have a cooler home.

Hi Ace!
When purchased new, this unit comes with a belt and pulley. You DO NOT need to purchase a "motor kit", just a motor. Dial motors, found in the store, are very reliable.
I hope this helps,

Answer: 
Unless you want a breeze, use a smaller motor.
These things produce about the same amount of cooling running on low as they do on high.
You'll save energy by using a smaller motor, 1/3-1/2 HP and getting the breeze from ceiling fans.
I use a 1/2Hp motor on mine and run it on the low setting.

Answer: 
The recommended motor if you chose a 3/4 HP is a 115V motor, and the champion part number is 110449. The champion part number for the pulley is 1103279-004 and is a (4 X 1/2) single groove pulley. When using the 3/4 HP motor, you may need a 53 inch belt, which would be champion part number 110229. The unit comes equipped with a junction box for wiring.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I WOULDNT BUY ANOTHER ONE OF THESE... Save your money and do not buy this.... after purchasing this last week and installing it this past weekend, i am not satisfied one bit at all. I replaced my old style, rusted out in every corner, down draft 3000DD unit with this model ADA51. The 3000DD was already there on my roof when i purchased my home three years ago. Big difference between these two units, don't be fooled by the looks of the ADA51 unit. My old style one, the 3000DD which uses the Aspen pads, kept my house so much cooler on low speed. This model does not compare at all to keeping my house cool... not one bit at all, on either speed. Only at night is it some-what noticeable. My 3000DD made my house at night like a freezer, and very cool in the day, much more cooler than the ADA51 unit, again, this unit DOES NOT compare to the 3000DD. I thought we had put the Media in wrong as we did take it out for installation, but we did put it back in correctly after all. I did some research and talked with owners of this unit in my neighborhood before purchasing it, they all approved of it. That's why i purchased it. Sorry, i don't approve of it. In short, my 3000DD was much better and a lot cooler. I'll never buy this style again. In fact, i am thinking about returning it to the store. Complete waste of money, a lot of hard earned money. Save yours. Now the positives with this unit: Has a replaceable plastic tray that the water sits in so the bottom of the unit will have a much more prolonged cabinet/floor life (wont rust out). If only the 3000DD had that (they should come with it, Essick). Installed semi easy with a friend of mine with a minimum amount of tools and some foil tape. A neighbor thought it was an a/c unit, lol. Looks great (works lousy tho). Strong sturdy cabinet that comes apart easy to install motor/access the media etc etc. Comes with the water circulation pump and scale screen installed already, Power cord, Bleed Off kit (but i used the optional Powerclean purge pump instead, sold seperately as shown in orange), Media (has 5 year warranty), Power plug-in base (which can be put on either side of the cooler), Belt, Drain outlet. But again, not a good working unit... sorry Essick/HD June 29, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greact cooler Easily torn down to enable rooftop installation.Keeps house cool on low speed. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product Installed 2 weeks to teplace 20 yr old Ultra cooler...its quiet works in our dry environment. Using a flush pump to send water to a garden area. Like a car to save the paint..I suggest you wax it when opening and/or shutting it down for the season. Only suggested upgrade to to have sheet metal insulated to assist keeping internal cabinet temps down. I personally did this with 1/4 inch glued foam board inside the old cooler...it appeared to help ..20 yrs... Overall nice product. May 31, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5000 CFM Down-Draft Roof 8 IN. Media Evaporative Cooler For 1650 sq. ft. I was very satisfied with the purchase of my Down-Draft Evaporative Cooler. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Unit Energy efficient, strong fan and output. The legs worked well and the installers/installation was good but not great. There is a seal incomplete that the roofers will have to seal when the new roof is installed in the beg of October. All around---HD service/personnel, at every level, was exceptional and the installation was good. The unit itself works perfect for our home's design and 1750 sq ft main floor which receives the bulk of the cooling air. October 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet, so far so good.... Everything went together nicely. You can actually take the unit apart and haul it up a roof if need be. Mine was sort of destroyed when I got it unboxed at home. It was going to be too much of a hassle to take back. Although it does look bad, it works, too bad I don't have all the time int the world to exchange it. Seems to get cool quick though and would have got a 5 star except for the damage and you have to buy a motor...but it is quiet and hope it don't rust...! May 17, 2012
