It comprises a radiator fan (10), a cooling pack (2) and a fan frame (18) which extends from a fan ring (9) enclosing the radiator fan to the cooling pack. The invention seeks to enhance cooling performance with regard to given dimensions of the cooling pack (2) and radiator fan (10). To this end, the fan frame (18) forms a vertical flow channel (23) in the section (12) rising laterally above the projection of the radiator fan (10). In the section (11) rising above the cooling pack (2), the fan frame (18) forms a collecting area (22) which is connected by the flow to the vertical flow channel (23).
