Evaporative Cooling Unit
Port-A-Cool's Cyclone 3000 evaporative cooling unit is transforming how auto enthusiasts cool areas such as garages or shops that are not conducive to air conditioning. The unit utilizes rigid highefficiency cooling pads and water to naturally cool the air, lowering temperatures up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The unit provides powerful centrifugal air delivery while using less electricity than a typical hair dryer. It features 700 square feet of cooling capacity, 3,000cfm, and two speeds. No assembly is required, and casters provide easy portability. The unit has a water-hose hookup and a 16- gallon water capacity. It is available in black or sienna, measures 29 by 25 by 38 inches, weighs 100 pounds, and comes with a one-year warranty. For more information, log on to www.port-a-cool.com.

Floor Jack Ramps
Brute Industries now offers Trak- Jax to provide clearance to fit floor jacks and the arms of two-post lifts under vehicles with low ground clearance.

Textured coating prevents sliding across floors, including epoxy-coated floors, and they won't scratch or otherwise damage floors. All ramp models can accommodate tires up to 10 inches wide, and at less than 5 pounds each and only 30.1 inches long, they can even fit the smallest of car trunks. They are easy to clean and won't rust and are available with or without a 1.5-inch stop. For more information, log on to www.raceramps.com.
