Q Standard Classic Cooler Drum Fan - 23in., 1/3 HP, 7700 CFM, Model# 10289
This thing really blows... in a good way!
I needed a new shop fan after my 20+ year old Delta 40" floor fan finally gave up the ghost. After going to a big box store and getting a replacement 48" fan, I wasn't happy with it's performance or it's massive footprint. After reading the reviews here, I went to NT and picked up one of these 23" fans. Boy does it blow! It puts off as much air as the big box boy's 48" fan. It's surprisingly easy to deal with too, given it's size. It's heavy (a sign of a good motor) the blades are big and raked in at an angle that makes the most of the drum design. I went back and bought another one, which I have permanently mounted on the wall above my workbench. Now I have that one and the floor one both blowing on me when I'm in the garage in the summer in July. Now I don't have to stop working because I'm dying of heat exhaustion.

Q Standard Classic Cooler Drum Fan - 23in.
Bought this fan so I can work in my double garage during the summer months. I have a 20 in. box fan in the window but the garage temperature in the summer is still unbearable. With this 23 in. Portable Fan I can do projects that I would normally wait until the weather cools. It moves a lot of air and while the fan can make some noise, even on low, being able to work in 90 degree + heat makes this fan perfect. I can turn the fan in any direction.

Works as expected
Purchased to move air in a small outdoor arena, mostly to help keep flying insects away. Moves enough air, but not a lot of difference between low and high setting. Quieter than I had expected it to be.

Portable exhaust fan
I am using this fan in a knock-down spray booth for my woodshop. It arrived promptly and performed just as I'd hoped, providing a strong, steady exhaust stream to evacuate overspray. It's quiet enough, and though it has two speeds, I leave it on high for my uses.

Great Cooling Fan w Mister
We purchased 4 of these fans last summer and attached misting rings to the front to use in our Emergency Responder Rehab unit and they have worked great. They take some pretty rough treatment, loading and unloading each time we deploy the unit and have worked perfectly every time. Can't recommend them enough.

Well pleased for the price !!!
I got this to use in my 30' X 40' garage during the hot weather and I think it will do the job very nicely. The only thing I am not pleased with just like some of the others has written, is the very slight difference between the 2 speeds, I would like the low speed to be slower than it is. Other than that I feel for the price you cannot beat it. I'm very happy with the quality of the fan and how easy it was to put together took me less than 10 minutes.

Not up to specs
Bought this with high hopes. Cranked it up on high and using a Extech Anemometer measured at best 1050 feet per minute. Based on the area of the drum that is roughly 3452 CFM. Less than HALF the rated amount. After adjusting the blades I can get about 1250 FPM. Still far short of the claimed CFM.
