Large, free-flowing debris can cover and slow or even stop airflow on fans with conventional guards. That won't happen with the 18" DURAFAN® Circulating Fan with Wide Guard. It's designed for use in areas where large debris is present, such as in poultry barns.

I really like this fan, I'm glad I made the investment in it.
We have it mounted outside on our patio. What made me chose this one was that it has the outdoor motor. It's been thru 3 heavy rains and is working perfectly. My one issue is, the description of "circulating " made me believe it would oscillate and it doesn't.
Less dust collection?
We just installed these in a horse barn above the stalls. We have had similar fans in this location. The fans appear well made and completely sealed. The horses create quite a bit of dust over the summer from their shavings which has in the past collected on the wire baskets. The dust collects to the point where I'm sure it is hampering the fans efficiency. We're hoping with the wide guard this will be less of a problem. Unfortunately we won't know for sure until later this year.
Excellent airflow and quiet too!
The amount of air that these fans produce, even at low speed, is great for my horse stalls. They are quiet too. Easy to install. Appear to be built solid and of good quality. I chose the wide guard and it's perfect for my use. I'm happy with my purchase and with the manufacturer, who answered all my questions and shipped the fans very quickly. Thumbs-up all around!
Great fan at a good price
Love this fan. I use it in my chicken coop and it puts out a ton of air. The Lowes fans I've been buying are Junk and only last about one season. Hoping this one will stand the test of time but we'll see. Only issue is it needs two people or three or four hands to mount.
