Circulates air but loud
This would be a great fan for a barn but not recommended for commercial purposes. They should specify that it is noisy because it is an expensive fan.
Great for barns
I use these fans to cool my horses during these hots Florida summers. I wanted the comfort that they won't set my barn on fire or be destroyed in the hot humid weather we have. They easily move a lot of air, are easy to adjust, and can be rinsed off to keep clean. They are worth every penny.
They have been running 24x7 in the barn since I got them, no issues at all!! Heavy, lots of airflow on high, enough to cool off a barn full of hot sheep, and 1 hot and sweaty farmer :)
I purchased 5 of these for our barn. I've had to replace 3 in a little over a years time due to bearings going bad. Prior to bearings wearing out, the fans are great but replacement is not cheap. Please fix the bearing issue.
I mounted both fans on my porch ceiling. The put out high velocity air flow with minimum noise. A normal conversation can take place amongst fam ily and friend with both fans on level 3 air velocity. Rated for outdoor use at a very fair price. More than I expected - very satisfied
I have purchased a total of 5 of these fans for my barn. I had one have bearings go bad so replaced it about 5 months ago. Now I have a second one with bearing issues that needs to be replaced. These fans ought to last longer than a couple of years. I cannot recommend them at this time given the bearing issues I am having.
Our FL horse barn is cooled all year long with Durafan's that we chose to use in 2011. We use two fans min./horse & hose them off every other day. Theses fans are a durable, proven investment for your barn's safety & your horse's well being. We are placing another order today for 3 more fans, to take to shows. Try them mounted to portable small dollies for easy transportation & positioning.
Like it so far
I purchases this fan because after years of using the standard box fan, I just got worried that the odds were not in my favor and I was eventually going to have a problem. I have this in my horse's stall and though we only need it a few months out of the year, he tends to overheat very easily. This is much more powerful and efficient at circulating air on the low setting than a box fan on high. The enclosed motor has reduced my concern about dust being caught and the fact that it is waterproof is major bonus. I actually did not bolt it to the wall and instead created a rigging system for it to hang from the rafters. I can still direct the air where I want it to go, but it makes it easier to move this way and keeps the barn owner happy that I did not install something on her wall.
Only had it a couple of weeks but it is doing a nice job. Quiet and sturdy.
We are pleased with this fan and found it easy to install.
Great fan, good price.
Just installed 2 of these fans. Quieter than expected. Seem to move quite a bit of air. So far, so good.
nice fan, good price
I got these for my horse barn. Now each horse has a SAFE fan in their stall. After years of cheap box fans that made me worry about fire whenever we left them on overnight, I will sleep much better with these in place. Nice size, easy to mount, no louder than those cheap fans, wish I'd done this years ago!
would recommend this fan!
excellent replacement for the fans we couldn't find a replacement for in the past! Quiet and good air speed!
My Ducks And I love This Fan!
I put this fan in a our duck pen that has a metal roof over it. Snow & Cotton love it! It will definitely cool things off for them when we hit those triple digits that are the norm for Texas summers. This is quite a powerful fan, so we run it on low. But, if you need more power, it's certainly there.
I've installed over 100 of these fans in many different applications. From, garages to patios to stables, they've NEVER let me down. My personal fan on my own patio which has seen plenty of weather is still going strong after 6 years! An excellent choice for anyone at a reasonable price.
Horse tested, horse approved
Purchased this fan for my horse's stall- humid Baltimore summers are hard on a horse who doesn't sweat well. Plenty of length on the cord and the hooks to contain the cord are well placed. I would prefer a knob over the pull chain for faster adjustment. The fan is very quiet and moves a lot more air than his neighbor's box fan- I have it mounted on the stall grate but angled 15 degrees downward and it reaches all corners of his 12*12 box. Today I went to take the horse out to hand-graze as it was a beautiful warm evening, and he took three bites before marching us back into the barn, where he parked himself back in front of his fan and refused to move. This horse normally only stops eating when ill... so clearly, he gives his new fan four hooves up.
Great barn fan
This is a great fan! Runs quiet...pushes ALOT of air. In fact, I rarely use the highest setting even in summer. I have the 18". Very durable, easy to clean and install. "Cradle" allows for variety of mounting possibilities & easily changing the angle of the fan. My horse loves to nap right in the flow to keep those nasty FL insects away.
Fans for Horses
I bought these fans for a run-in shed that my 2 horses occupy to help keep them cool in the summer and control flying insects. It is too cold yet to use the fans, but I am extremely happy with this purchase. The 2 fans arrived within a week in great condition. They are very sturdy, move a lot of air, and are rated for outdoor use. They will work great for the intended use!!
We use these fans in our horse barn, they are efficient and best waterproof so we can use them in the wash bay and not take them down when we wash the stables. So far no problems at all.
Very good fans, very quiet. They arrived in less than a week after order was place. They really help with this Texas heat.
Very heavy duty and quiet. Great fan-great price!
Must-have for horse owners
Loved this fan so much I ordered another the next day. Worth every penny. It's quiet and really does the job. Helps keep the flies and bugs away too. Horses LOVE it. Electrical subcontractor for barn advised we get a fan that was damp-proof and dust-proof. We pre-wired an outlet up on the cross-beam in the stall; do this if you can. QC shipped same-day on both orders.
Horses R ur # 1 fans !!!
Horses are loving it..... so easy to install with pull chain to cut off without having to unplug...... Thanks for all your help... great service and fast delivery......
Very Nice Quality/Safe Fan
After reading an article in Horse Journal, about the hazards of some box fans I bought this "Cadillac" of fans for the front of my horses stall.
I wanted a fan w/a sealed motor that hay, shavings, grain, dust etc. could not enter.
The price of a box fan being $20 vrs. this being around $90 is well worth the piece of mind that I have now when I leave my fan on all night.
I am hoping that other horse owners where I board my horse throw out their ratty old box fan and buy this "Cadillac" of fans!
The fan motor is very quiet and is a bit more powerful than a box fan, but not so powerful as to create a problem.
I do wish it had a knob vs. the pull string - only because I worry about the longevity of the pull string.
It was very easy to put up in front of the stall bars , I just ran a heavy coated wire through the hole and attached it to a top rail,I added a bungee cord for extra support.
It truly is a nice fan and I am very happy with my purchase.
Love this Fan! We easily installed this fan on the back patio just as temps reached above 90 over the weekend! It provided great relief while doing yard work. This powerful fan was surprisingly quieter than expected and the 9 ft cord was just the right length to reach the outlet. Once installed, the unit is very sturdy. My only complaint is the grate was slightly bent but it was an easy fix.
I purchased 4 fans and put one at each top corner of my covered porch. They re working great. They produce a great breeze.
I only ordered the 18" to put on the ceiling at the entrance to my barn aisle. It was very easy to install and quiet. I couldn't believe this little fan could make such a big difference. I swear it keeps my barn twenty degrees cooler, it really moves some air. Although I think QC is awesome for great pricing and good customer service, the two nuts and bolts were just loose in the box which wasn't very sturdy, one part of the fan grill was bent, but it didn't affect it's operation. I am very happy with the fan and will be ordering more.
I have had four of these fans for a year. They replaced box fans for cooling individual horse stalls when I finally acknowledged to myself that box fans are not safe. These fans are quiet, the air flow is right, and I expect them to last long enough that the cost will compete with box fans. They were easy to hang on the stall front. Putting them at the top of the stall wall for the stalls that needed that was harder, but I made a bracket out of wood that slips over the top of the wall. Keep the cord out of the reach of the horse. They are easy to clean at the end of the season because they can be hosed off before storage.
Purchased 6 of these fans for an equestrian facility-each horse has their own fan. By far the best fan we have ever used. Easy to mount and airflow is superb. Horses love them!
purchased this and mounted it for under my carport. didn't have enough clearance for a ceiling fan. this one works great and created more airflow than any ceiling fan. easy to mount had it up in 20 min
Best fans I've found yet
Great fans, up out of the way, efficient, and relatively quiet. Very heavy duty, we've had some for 2 years, and hope to get at least a few more years out of them.
Good service, good product!
Bought two, using in our horse barn to keep a couple of aged geldings comfortable in the heat of summer. Just installed today, and they run quietly and move a lot of air. Appear to be worth every penny.
Powerful, quiet fan - amazing results
Last year the people next door installed a woodstove chimney five feet from the property line. The smoke and fumes were literally everywhere. In our front yard, our vehicles, our house (it even set off the smoke detector and CO alarm INSIDE our home!). It was terrible and our senior family member had awful respiratory troubles all winter long. We offered to pay to relocate the chimney or have a clean-burning natural gas heater installed, but our concerns were mocked and then ignored. WELL... no worries this year! We installed this fan on the eaves of our house, pointed it toward the offending chimney, and VOILA! - no more smoke or fumes. It ALL gets blown back to where it came. This fan is POWERFUL and QUIET and keeps on going no matter what the time, weather, or conditions. We love it! Thanks to this fan we are able to enjoy our home and yard again - as is only right. This fan was the PERFECT solution. No more smoke abuse from the ignorant, thoughtless, idiot "neighbors". No doubt this fan is strong enough to handle most anything you can throw at it.
Very easy to mount, long cord.
Easy to install, long cord. Priced right
Doing a really good job, I purchased 3 Durafans and 1 AirKing for a large patio. The Durafans were $40.00 more per fan, but put out almost twice the air with less noise.
Fast service from the vendor. Love the fan. Powerful enough for patio and fairly quiet.
This a a powerful three speed fan used in an outdoor patio area for a restaurant/bar. My only complaint is the clips that hold the front grill on the fan were bent slightly. This was easily fixed with pliers.
