I have a 15 x 25 shelter-logic structure with double layer 6M plastic for Catskill mountain winter. (Upstate NY) While this blower is sufficient to inflate the plastic over several minutes, if for any reason it is turned off for a few minutes, the condensation it has pushed between the plastic makes the layers stick together. It does not create enough pressure to separate them again. I had to use a vacuum cleaner on blow-mode, cut a second hole and blow that in while the blower was running. That will get me by, but depending on the size of your greenhouse, you may want to consider a higher volume blower for a few bucks more before you buy. You can always add venting it if the pressure is too high. But you can't get more pressure out of a sub-standard blower.
I had blower that failed from a different company and this new unit fit the other mounting and is working better than the old unit. Great!
GREENHOUSE INFLATOR BLOWER
THIS IS A QUALITY BLOWER FOR A GREAT PRICE, WORKS GREAT OUT OF THE BOX AND IS MADE OF MATERIALS THAT WILL LAST LONGER IN A MOIST GREENHOUSE INVIORMENT.
Not So Pwerful
Blower just arrived and my concern is that it's not very powerful and the 1/100 HP motor just isn't fully inflating our greenhouse. It also has, as some other reviewers have mentioned, noisy bearings.
this fan replaced a similar old one. It arrived quickly. I appreciated the fact that I could speak with a live person for help. Great service and fast delivery.
Thanks for the great item and it works great.
Great Blower Fan
The Fan works Great to inflate my greenhouse. My only Complaint would be the three holes for mounting the unit should be turned because you cant drive a screw thru one of the hole due to it being covered by the fan. Otherwise great unit
good match,but noisy
I was looking to replace my old inflation fan and this one was a perfect match. However it is noisier than the old one. Kind of spoils the relaxation of working in the greenhouse. I'd have been OK with paying a little more for a better bearing or whatever.
This is a great product at a great price. It arrived in just a few days as well. For more information on the fan and how great it worked out in my hoop house, you can visit http://followthegardenpath.blogspot.com/ .
Inflation Blower 60 CFM
Easy to switch over. Excellent product that is keeping my greenhouse inflated. Nice and quite motor. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Quality Products and Great Value
Product was received quickly and after reviewing many sites was the best value. Will definitely check Greenhouse Megastore first the next time I am in need of products for my greenhouse.
This fan was to replace a defective one in an older greenhouse. Finding the right fan and online ordering was easy, shipping was timely, the fan arrived in perfect condition and swapping out the units took about 15 minutes. A very positive experience!
What really impressed me the most is the service that I received from this company. Ordered and received the fan within 5 days. The fan was intended to inflate my covering and its done the job just as I had hoped. With the adjustable baffle I can control the amount of strength the plastic has. Really helps when the wind kicks up. Great job mega I'll be back again in the near future. Duane A. Hurd
Thar She Blows!!!
Simply amazing. I had no idea that, that was the way a blower should work. I asked my husband, who needs NASA? We could just detach the 16'X10' GH from the ground and go to the moon ourselves! Now if I could just have my son keep the lawnmower away from the GH I'll be set. Twice he put 3X4 holes in it and I was amazed to see that the Blower didn't even care. It just kept blowing and the GH stayed inflated. I taped up the holes and didn't even see a difference. It was also extremely quick to install. I was cooking dinner and never even noticed that my husband had it done. After dinner I asked him if he could put it in and he just smiled :~). I would recommend this blower to anybody who needs one.

Workhorse and a great value
This is one powerful little fan. I was concerned that 70 cfm might not be enough to inflate my 20X20' homemade hoop house. In fact I had to reinforce my holders to keep the plastic down! It runs cool and is quieter than the larger fans I've seen. Pretty good for a fan that is about half the price of the the others I checked. I really did this on the cheap, made my own gaskets & mounted the fan flange directly to the plastic. It works fine, but I will probably spring for a hose sometime. I'm delighted with my purchase.
