Customer Reviews

18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Jobsite Fan (Tool-Only) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fan ever Every one at job sites wants it and there even more shock when they know the price
Date published: 2017-07-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping me cooler this summer I have had this fan for most of the summer. It's used at work installing fixtures in new homes and does a decent job of moving air even on low speed. I also use it at home on hotter weekends when enjoying the outdoors on the back porch. It runs just shy of an hour at high speed with small 1.5 batteries that are pretty used and about 3 with the larger 3 amp. The fan isn't whisper quiet but it defiantly isn't annoying. As it's been on the job site it has been knocked around and even dropped a few times from low heights but it still keeps running along. Kind of what you expect from Mikita products. It's a little pricey when you factor in the cost of the 3 amp battery for longer run times, but let's face it, it seems a whole lot more reasonable when your trying to cool off on a humid summer day. I am ferry happy with my purchase and would recommend it to others. Wish it was made in America though!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenience is so worth it for dogs Perfect solution to a dash in store with pup in car - can leave pup in booster seat, lower windows a tad and turn on fan - this is only for a minimal about of time being gone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loud and very short run time. Build quality was good, runtime was horrible, noise level was intolerable. It was returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loves this fan I bought this fan as a fathers day gift for my husband since he works outdoors, I thought it would make a great gift. It was an immediate hit. His co-workers never even heard of this fan, they compliment him all of the time and it helps him stay somewhat cooler in the 100+ temperatures in California. works great and he loves it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fan for the camper The fan was a little noisy but it was a life saver, camping in the heat. I had makita drills so buying batteries was no issue. The fan won't last 3 hours but it worked well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good portable fan You know it will be great because its a Makita. It is a bit noisy though, especially on the low setting. It sounds almost like something is wrong but I have two of them and they both sound exactly the same. It makes a good breeze and it is light and easy to carry around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita never dissapoints The center of gravity design of this fan is perfect. Will adjust to good positions without tipping. Great for drying floors, walls, or ceilings in addition to keeping crew cooler. The timer is the icing on the cake.
