Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lola Fabulous fans!
The Hunter, Caicos fans are beautiful on our southern inspired wrap around porch. While it was a bit labor intensive to install them, it was well worth it. These fans are quiet and provide a cool breeze on hot and humid evenings. We would highly recommend these fabulous fans!

Needed a wet rated outdoor fan. Forget the home stores house brands....go with Hunter and you'll never be disappointed.
Install is straightforward and probably took an hour tops to install hanger box, wiring and fan itself.
This Hunter fan was the perfect addition for us on our pergola and gives the right amount of breeze we needed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soundman5000 Nice looking fan, Took lots of time to put fan together, install.
It has been a good ten years from my last fan install but back then I installed lots of fans and I had one rule... Only buy Hunter as the install was always easiest. After installing this fan I no longer will follow my own rule. I understand Hunter has fans marketed as faster 5-min fans, this is not one of those fans.
The 1st thing I noticed when purchasing this fan is how small the box is, that should have told me that this fan required lots of assembly. As example, all my fans of the past the metal arms were factory attached to the fan blade so all was required was attaching the blades to the motor with 3 screws via the metal arm. This fan required me to insert three rubber grommets in each of the five blades then attach each fan blade to the metal arm and then attach the metal arm to the motor and that was after I was required to remove the 10 screws holding shipping blocks on the motor. I found attaching the blades as per instruction after the fan was hung was unnerving as my decking on my porch will eat a screw if dropped. When attaching the blades after hanging it is almost impossible not to drop a screw so be aware of this if you have a floor ( decking with space between the boards) that will eat a dropped screw like my floor does.
I only assume this fan is in so many parts to save container space / packaging / labor and attempt to make the shipping box as small as possible. I was left feeling my time was of no value with the design of this fan as it took a long time to put this fan together.
The fan looks good, absolutely silent and balanced well, The fan does include a balancing kit so no excuse for a shaking fan I guess; I was not required to use the balancing kit as my fan does not shake out of the box but I have if if ever a problem.
The included chain is what I consider short so if you have a higher than normal ceiling you may need more chain and possibly a longer pipe all available at Home Depot.
The air flow could be a bit better but I know this as I compared specs before my purchases but will work for my needs. My #1 deciding factor was the look and I am happy with that! I also based my buying decision on the fact this fan is rated for "WET" locations, NOTE, some fans are rated for damp locations not wet. The Hunter quality of the past and the price point.
I am in a costal environment so I needed a dark fan as to not show any rust that may develop.
After all was said and done I can say I am happy with my fan as the look is fantastic but make sure you have some time to install this fan as it is not a quick hang.

I had the fans installed not long ago so I can't comment on the quality yet. The previous fans lasted 20 years on our lanai. They do look nice.

Very easy to install. Nice bracket to hang motor in. Good directions. Using the fan outside in a pavilion and sounds quiet for what it's worth. I'm pleased with purchase.
