Pushing the Edge in High Performance Ventilation
You don't always have to sacrifice performance for the convenience of an electric powered ventilation fan. Tempest's latest Power Blower, the VSR, is closing the CFM gap between gas and electrics. Tempest Variable speed VS Drive and massive 2.0 HP motor, paired with their signature blade and shroud designs deliver the absolute best in GFCI compatible performance. If you are looking to go electric, but don't want to sacrifice airflow, the VSR is the answer.
The GFCI compatible, NEMA 4 rated control box is durable, reliable and easy to operate. The 0 - 100 Rheostat knob and On/Off toggle are all it takes to operate the unit quickly and effectively.

Although the VSR bears some brand new performance features, it's chassis holds true to Tempest's signature Power Blower design.
Welded Roll Cage Frame
- A Flip-up/Fold-down handle
- Information safety bar
- Light weight welded roll cage frame
- Dual winning step
- Turbo 2000 shroud
- Airflex composition impeller
- Off-road tires
- Front kickstep
- Safety grille
Every bend and cross brace weld is structurally engineered to give the positive pressure ventilation fan's frame more strength and durability, improving its strength to weight ratio by as much as 30%. The PPV fan frame is specifically designed to give protection to nearly all angles and sides of the shroud and motor, and doubles as a handle for lifting/carrying. This "roll cage" design allows for industry leading durability for the everyday challenges that come with fighting fires.
8" Non-Pneumatic Wheels
Extra wide 8" off-road non-pneumatic tires are more durable and allow easy movement up and down stairs, over curbs and large diameter hoses, as well as through rough or muddy terrain. No brakes to forget to lock down or unlock. The blower rests on firm, anti-vibration rubber feet for stability. "Walking" or movement of positive pressure ventilation fan while in operation is eliminated. Risk of getting clothing in blower blades while kneeling to set brake levers is eliminated. 16" blowers are available only with 6" hard rubber tires.
Turbo 2000 Shroud
By redesigning the inward curve and front of the shroud, the Turbo 2000 increases air velocity by up to 30%. The air hitting the ventilation opening is stronger and maintains PPV pressure farther downwind.
AirFlex Composition Impeller
Paired specifically with its equipped 2.0 HP motor, the VSR's uniquely designed impeller "wings" deliver maximum air volume (cfm), velocity and pressure possible. The impeller blades are made from a high strength composite. Composite blades require less torque from the engine to spin resulting in increased CFM. Composites also provide increased safety, as the blades are designed to disintegrate upon impact with any foreign object. Aluminum or other metal blades may chip or fragment when structural integrity is compromised, throwing potentially dangerous shrapnel in any direction.
The exclusive full width handle design makes pushing or pulling a positive pressure ventilation fan to and from the ventilation site quick and easy. The handle quickly swings up to a comfortable height and automatically locks firmly into position. Unlatch and easily fold the handle down for storage at the PPV fan's listed dimensions.
Dual "Winning Step"
No levers to set or knobs to tighten when setting the angle for PPV. Foot operated adjustment is quick, easy and secure. Dual step allows for adjustment with either foot. Four back and one forward tilt position.
Front and rear safety grills feature a continuous spun wire body with eight tie point bars that also support the "Turbo 2000" shroud integrity. Meets strict European CE Safety Standards.
A brand new positive pressure ventilation fan feature is the Information and Safety Bar added to the folding handle. The bar features a large section of durable, reflective material to dramatically increase visibility of the PPV fan from front view and a full list of instructions to allow for safe and effective use.
It's all there. When it comes to durability, safety and ergonomics, nothing beats a Tempest Power Blower.
