Yes, they are surprisingly effective at low speeds. I have my own personal "acid test" with them. When I take a good ride, on a hot day, and pull directly in to the garage and shut her off, without ever using the pusher fans, the thermostatically controlled puller fan will stay on for a couple of minutes there in the garage, with the hood open. But, if I turn the pusher fans on about a block or so from the house and pull in to the garage with them all on, and shut the car off and the pushers off as well, the engine is not hot enough to have the puller come on at all. I think, in a pinch, the pushers could actually get me by without the puller at all... maybe.
