Whereas belt-driven fans use up power from the engine to turn, electric fans do not, thus removing any unnecessary load and increasing both fuel economy and horsepower. In addition, you do not have to worry about an electric fan's slowing down at low RPM, as many belt-driven fans do, so you are guaranteed sufficient airflow regardless of the vehicle speed.


Before purchasing an electric fan, be sure to determine the CFM (cubic feet per minute) requirements for your engine. And remember, engines that have been modified or vehicles often used for towing may require additional CFM. There is no limit to the number of fans you can install, as long they all fit appropriately and are mounted on the same side of your radiator so that they do not cancel each other out.


Two types of turn-on sources are available for this fan. The Derale Lighted On/Off Switch for Electric Fans (D16740) allows for manual control of your fan so that you can choose when to turn it on and off. Thermostatic controls, on the other hand, send a signal to the fan, directing it to shut off when fluid temperatures reach an appropriate level, thus saving power. Once the temperature climbs again and additional cooling is needed, the fan is automatically turned back on. Thermostat switches can be single-stage with pre-set temperatures - D16735, D16738, D16739, D16720 and D16721 - or adjustable - D16778 and D16779.

My 1990's-vintage garden tractor had a hydraulic cooler crammed into the engine compartment, so I remotely located it and am now cooling it with your Derale 7" Tornado Electric Fan. It's working great! It will be so much easier to service the system. Your website did a fantastic job describing the fan, and ordering/delivery was flawless. Thanks! 85916


Comments

The Derale fan has been a winner. Its seen a variety of conditions on my garden tractor in all seasons and just keeps purring along. If it quit tomorrow Id definitely purchase another. Thanks for the follow-up.

Ask the Experts about this Derale Radiator Fans

Do you have a question about this Radiator Fan?


  • Can the Derale Electric Paddle Blade Radiator Fan # D16104 Provide Airflow in Either Direction
  • The Derale 4 inch High-Output Extreme Paddle Blade Electric Fan, # D16104, is designed for puller applications only, so the fan must be mounted on the inboard side of the radiator to pull cooler outside air into the engine compartment and over the radiator. The smallest reversible air flow fan that we carry at this time is the Derale 7 inch Tornado Electric Fan, item # D16617. This fan can be installed as a pusher fan on the forward side of the radiator or as a puller fan on the inboard...

  • 7 Inch Diameter Radiator Fan that Can be Used as a Pusher
  • The closest fan we offer to the # D16105 that you referenced that can also be used as a pusher would be the Derale 7" Tornado Electric Fan # D16617. This fan is slightly larger at 7 inches compared to the 5 inches of the fan you referenced and has a higher CFM rating of 400 compared to the other fan that can do 315.

  • How Does Derale Tornado Electric Fan D16617 Get Operating Power
  • The Derale Tornado Electric Fan # D16617 has a built-in 12V electric motor to power it. The motor will draw 4.8-amps of current at 12-volts from the vehicle battery. This fan will not use engine power to function the way belt-driven fans do. In addition, you do not have to worry about an electric fan's slowing down at low RPM, as many belt-driven fans do, so you are guaranteed sufficient airflow regardless of the vehicle speed.
