The tagline of Soleaire air movers is this: Dependable, lightweight, powerful. Does this apply to the Max Storm, a fan advertised as a commercial janitorial air mover?
Weighing 25 lbs., there are surely lighter fans out there, but when it promises a 2550-CFM air volume/output, the weight becomes almost not a big deal.
But other than that, what else can the Soleaire Max Storm offer? What are its pros and cons? Should you get one for your janitorial or, yes, your household needs? Let’s answer all those in this Soleaire Max Storm review.
Key Features of the Soleaire Max Storm
Let’s take a look at the key features of the Max Storm.
3 Operating Angles
You can’t find an air blower with a pivoting head, but most of them are equipped with 3 sets of feet to give you 3 operating angles. Using these feet, you can vary the Soleaire Max Storm‘s airflow direction by simply adjusting the feet so the unit maintains a horizontal, vertical, or 45-degree position.
This feature is extremely useful especially if you’re in the janitorial business wherein you’ll be required to tackle floor and above-floor types of drying tasks.
25-Foot Power Cord
Although there are other brands and models with longer power cords, the 25-foot cord that the Max Storm has is still long enough so that you can position the unit anywhere you want.
Aside from that, know that the cord comes with its own cord wrap which is located on top of the blower. This ensures easy storage.
The Soleaire Max Storm comes with 2 speed settings. To choose between these options, there’s a water-resistant control switch on the unit. It’s also equipped with a 0.5 HP motor with a 5 amp draw.
