If you are going to be shopping for a new Portable Evaporative Cooler, or Swamp Cooler as some call them, I would like to make a few suggestions. Champion Cooler Corporation makes five models in the Gadabout Series that you will find are excellent choices. Each model fits a particular need from the smallest model, the Champion M150, to the largest model, the Champion M500. I will mention a few features about each of the five models. There are dozens of businesses that sell Champion Portable Coolers online and will ship them to your home or business. I recommend checking prices and shipping costs at several of these businesses as prices can vary greatly. Go to Google or Yahoo and type in Champion Gadabout Coolers and you will find quite a few businesses listed. They will also list the features as well as pictures of each model. I will mention a few features that I like.
The Champion M150 is the smallest Gadabout model. It is shaped similar to a box fan but is about 17 inches thick. This model has a handle and is on casters for easy mobility. The fan has a 1/8 HP motor with 3 speeds. Even though this motor uses very little power it delivers 1100 CFM on high speed.
The Champion M201 is a larger model, and as with the rest of the Gadabout models, is more of a square shape. This model, as well as the next three I will describe, is generally used in garages and work shops. It is also on casters like the rest of the Gadabout units. This cooler should be used for cooling areas up to 700 square feet. The Champion M301 is the next Gadabout model and is a little larger. This model weighs about 100 pounds and may be too large for a home Portable Cooler. It has a 2 speed motor and cools up to 1000 square feet. Once again the Champion M401 is larger yet. The M401 can cool up to 1400 square feet and comes with a 4 way directional grille with easy move vanes.
The largest of the Gadabout models is the Champion M500. Even though this model weighs 195 pounds, as with the other Gadabouts, it is on casters and is easily moved around in your shop. With the Champion M500 Cooler you can cool a large area. It delivers 5000 CFM with it’s 3/4 HP, 2 speed motor. This model also has a 4 way directional grille with easy move vanes. There are two other features that make the Champion M500 superior to other Portable Evaporative Coolers. It has a 47 gallon reservoir to give more cooling time between refills. It also comes with a 20 foot cord with a GFCI safety plug.
As you can see the Champion Gadabout Coolers are made for every situation and need. I have not only used Champion Evaporative Cooler products, but I have also visited the Champion factory to watch them build their products. I recommend that you consider Champion Coolers.
