It wasn't hard, but not that easy. Its so lite, I carried it up the ladder to the roof by myself! And then you turn it on. omG, I thought it was going to take off! It sounds just like a plane motor. It blows hard a cool, but, for the price, I could've purchase a MasterCool. No, I do not recommend. I give it one summer under the Arizona sun and heat. The shell is made out of a very thin fiberglass.

    It’s a nice evaporative cooler but the price doesn’t justify, the cooler feels like it has less airflow than my old 4500cfm champion evaporative cooler and its a lot noisier. If I could return it I would

    Make sure you get all the pieces
    I think overall the price is too high and all the components don’t come in one box. I like the idea of it being all plastic so no worries about rust but the main body needs to be thicker for more durability, the thickness is very similar to lawn furniture I would be concerned about the sun effecting. Having to assemble this evaporative from the ground up made it easy to install but the down sides is I can’t use it yet because the three sides with the cooling media was lost in transit to the store, If this cooler was a couple of hundred cheaper it would be a great deal, I’m using this evaporative cooler for a small sun room so it’s perfect for what I need it for but it’s a little noisier than my old unit.
