> I just replaced a greenhouse blower this morning. Its the standard Dayton
> 4C440 used on almost every hoophouse, I usually get 10 years of non stop use
> from them. Dayton lists only one 12 volt dc model its the 2C646 its roughly
> the same size as the 4c440 except a bit over powered drawing 5 amps and
> putting out 176 cu. ft per minute. Just as a rule of thumb the 4C440 will
> inflate two 40x96' layers very nicely while drawing .4 amps and 60 cu fpm.
