Storm Conversion Kit

Product Description:
Do you want to upgrade your 55" Storm Fiberglass Exhaust Fans from a belt drive to the JD-Drive? Do that easily with our Conversion Kit. In a few simple steps, remove the H-frame, motor, prop, and pulleys from your belt drive Storm. Install the new frame, attach the JD-Drive and secure the prop. You'll be enjoying maintenance-free, direct drive, variable speed - with no VFD needed in no time! On the hottest days when moving a lot of air is necessary, the Direct Drive Storm can keep up and outperform the other Storm fans. When running the Direct Drive Storm at maximum speed is not needed, decreasing the speed will allow you to $AVE BIG on your energy bill.
