8" Utility Blower
This small but powerful blower has made my job so much easier when using on smaller jobs. I use it when doing a bathtub in the customer's home. It was shipped on time as promised and well worth the price

A real blow hard
This is a tough fan. It's heavy built, nice thick sheet metal for the housing. When you plug it in you will be pretty astounded at how much this blower puts out. You can stand 20' away from it and still feel a powerful flow of air. I haven't tried it for dust collection and I haven't run it for long periods of time. However, my first impression is very favorable.

Great blower, FITS 8" ducting well
I have owned this blower nearly 5 months, it runs 24/7. Blower fits neatly standing atop an 8" duct fitting. Near perfect fit, a little duct tape to seal. An 8" to 6" reducer fits neatly atop the blower, again a little duct tape to seal. Motor is so quiet it is not heard over the considerable roar of the air movement. This blower, according to specs, moves more air (2-3x) for less watts than a Centrifugal type blower and generally costs less. Also according to specs, it is rated at 65 dB and most Centrifugal types are in the upper 70's. Admittedly, I've never owned or checked out a Centrifugal type duct blower so I can only compare by specs. However, Stanley and Lasko make Centrifugal type utility blowers that I have checked out, and this blower..ah..BLOWS them away. YES you can easily adapt this to fit standard 8" ducting. I use a motor speed controller with no problems there. Thus far this fan has been an awesome value and now its longevity remains to be seen. With a 1/4 horsepower motor I expect this fan could easily last for years. I just purchased my second unit on sale. I have wrapped the output side of the blower + the reducer attached there with a "runner" carpet measuring 2' x 8'. This wraps about three time around and lowers the sound level of the rushing air considerably.

This model is the smaller of the two but boy oh boy does it pack a punch. Had a dampness issue in the basement and needed a good solid blower to circulate the air and dry things out.
I chose this model and was/am very happy by it's power and strength to do the job. Had no problems drying out the basement in a short period of time.
Only drawback - it is a little noisy so being in the same room with it on can be unnerving. It doesn't oscillate and it focuses in the area it's pointed at.

Great exhoaus fan
While grinding fiberglass in an 23' shrink wrapped boat this fan was great. Combined with the hose setup it cleared the entire area quickly. I just wish I had purchased it a year ago!

The little Blower that could
I purchased 6 of these FlowPro Blowers a few months ago and I'll tell you they are a perfect size blower. It moves lots of air for it's size and HP! It's just heavy enough to hold in place while running but is not too heavy to be moving around to different work areas. I would defianatly recommend this blower to fellow companies who need to move air in or out of confined areas. So far they are all still working well and seem to be holding up to the abuse my welders put them through.

small but mighty blower
I bought this fan mostly from other reviewers cmments. They were 100% right, this fan moves tons of air for its size.
I just used this fan while doing drywall work in a basement, it quickly moved the dust to the outside and when it started to get hot I turned around and could fell the cool breeze from 20-30 feet away.
In a word - amazing.
