Q Standard Industrial Pedestal Fan - 30in., 1/3 HP, 8000 CFM, Model# 10301
Shop Fan. Yep the name says it all. This is not a fan you would want in your living room. Not even if you are single. This fan moves air. Lots of air. It is a bit noisy but in my shop with all the noise from the radio, hammering and sawing who cares. When it is over 100 degrees out and you want to move a lot of air in a working shop this is the fan for you. Goes together well. The pedestal is not tippy at all. Even at top speed the fan is balanced and steady. The fan guard is easy to put on and off for cleaning and not even the smallest of fingers can get through to the rotating blade. I use it on the first setting because the highest setting does not seem to be much more than the first setting. The motor feels and looks pretty hefty. Yep. Shop fan. It moves lots of air in my shop!

Don't waste your time
Received the unit last week, very excited! Heat wave here in NJ. Took 45 mins to set up. Looked great! Plugged it in and turned it on low, expecting to be blown away... NO air movement! Checked manual to make sure it was put together correctly... YES! Turned the unit to high speed. 8000CFM????? NO!!!
Took me 1 hour to take the unit apart and rebox up the unit . The 1 star is for looks. Wish it worked as good as it looks. Don't waste your time. Very noisy, blades are not angled enough to move air.

A LITTLE NOISY BUT WORKS GREAT
CAME IN HANDY THIS SUMMER 2012 IN SAN DIEGO DURING OUR MANY HEAT WAVES. NOT A BAD PRODUCT.

A great fan for the price
I was really hoping to purchase a round box fan that would sit on the ground. But they were sold out. It was extremely hot so I decided that I would settle for this fan. To my suprise it was better than I could have expected. I love the fact that you can adjust it to whatever level you desire. I did a break job on my step daughters car and it was nice to have it where I could set it at a comfortable level. I would definately recommend this to anyone that needs to stay cool at a good price.

This fan was used only during the hot summer days when I was doing work in my garage. Used June-Sep last year at approx 20 hours/week (high estimate). This year it was used starting in June and unfortunatley burned out last week. If this unit was used in a business 24/7 or at a much higher frequency that my needs, I could possibly understand how this unit would have such a short life span.
Although this unit did move air and I was quite pleased with its performance, its durability has left a bad impression on me.
An extended warrantee was not purchased on this unit. I would avoid this unit.

Good Fan for the Price
This is a pretty good fan...but time will tell how it holds up. I bought it for home and work. I use it at work in the outside shop ( metal building )...needless to say it gets pretty hot out there during the afternoon sun with temps reaching 110 inside. It does move the air pretty good, although the one I got only has 2 blades...not 3 as pictured. It is kind of loud when you are near it...but since it is only me out there I don't have to strian to listen to someone talking to me. I got mine onsale so it was a great bargain for a big fan. Easy to move around the shop, and it comes apart easily when I need to transport it in my car.

I would recommend this pedestal fan to anyone. It puts out an abundance of air, but doesn't take up a great amount of space. We've used it at our home and business and have absolutely no complaints. If you want to stay cool during this hot and humid summer, this is fan for you!

Good fan, well built, moves a lot of air!
Have used this fan nearly every hot day for two seasons now. It usually runs about 15 hours a day. It's still going strong. I made it easier to reposition by adding some small casters to the base (two of them lock - otherwise this thing would take off like a teen on rollerblades). Very high quality and a great value - even better when you catch it on sale!
One note: if it seems like the height-adjusting knob/bolt is too short, you've probably swapped it with the tilt-adjustment knob/bolt - they look nearly identical, but they're not. What? Me? No, I just *heard* that this can happen.

I recently moved to an area that is infamous for it's humid summers and vicious mosquitoes. I needed a REAL fan to provide relief from the humidity and the bugs while working in and around my new garage. This fan does an excellent job and is a powerful air mover! It is well built, but fairly light-weight, making it easy to move and re-position. It was a bit pricey, but I waited until it went on sale. However, sometimes it pays to spend a little more - other, less expensive fans didn't do it for me.

He Loved it!
Looked at tons of fans for his shop with no air and this was the best for the budget we had to work with. It is well built, not cheap as others. I thought the low speed was high, so high is like turbo speed. I went and got another for the shop at home.
