Capacity of AHU

The model number of this unit would appear to indicate 60K BTU (59 in the model number) - The installer has indicated that it is a 4Ton unit - What say you?

Drip edge and roof covering cuts

Shingles and roll material have been cut 1-1.5 inches back from the edge of the drip edge.
