Answer: 
Please note we do not recommend using a filter as it could cause the motor to overheat (the motor has to work harder to get air through the filter) and will void the warranty.

Answer: 
The outer diameter of the fan drum is 30 inches. However, there is a rounded bevel at the front and rear edges of the drum which adds 1/2 inch to each side making the total width of the drum cage 31 inches.

Answer: 
The outer steel ring of the fan screen is right at 30". There are 6 screws that hold the fan screen in place. The fan screen has tabs that extend out for the screws to go through and those screws installed through the screen are right at 31" on center. The outer steel housing of the fan unit is 32".

Answer: 
The outside diameter is 32". However, there are a pair of 7" wheels mounted on an axle that is mounted tangent to the circular fan housing. They take a bite out of the circumference. There is about 1/2" between the side of the wheels and the grill of the fan, so you could probably tuck the filter in between the wheel and the fan, or clip off one corner of the filter and make it fit.

Answer: 
This would be loud enough that you have to raise your voice in a conversation over the fan on high. It is probably around 80dB

Answer: 
On High Setting, Next to the Fan, 78-80 dB. At 15 feet 63-65 dB
On Low Setting, Next to the Fan, 73-75 dB, At 15 feet, 61-62 dB
This is in my shop with the fan resting on the floor, and with the overhead door lowered to the top of the fan, which creates a circular flow in the shop with the fan venting out.

On High Setting, Next to the Fan, 78-80 dB. At 15 feet 63-65 dB
On Low Setting, Next to the Fan, 73-75 dB, At 15 feet, 61-62 dB
This is in my shop with the fan resting on the floor, and with the overhead door lowered to the top of the fan, which creates a circular flow in the shop with the fan venting out.
"Next to the fan" measurements were taken from the intake side of the fan, moving the SPL meter around until I found the loudest reading.
"At 15 feet" measurements were taken with the SPL at my shop desk about 15 feet from the fan, and at ear level.
This fan moves a large volume of air rather than moving it at high velocity. It is big, but it has proved highly useful.
I primarily use it for three purposes:
I use it during operations that create fine dust, such as machining MDF, that overwhelm my dust collector. It clears the shop rapidly, but generally does not stir up the dust accumulated on the floor or other surfaces.
I also use it when applying lacquer to clear the solvent fumes. Because it moves a high volume of air, at low velocity, it quickly clears the fumes without getting crud on the finish.
On very hot days, I use it to cool the entire house. I run the fan in the shop doorway, but also open the attic access in the shop ceiling, and open the door that joins the shop to the kitchen. The fan is able to draw air in through the windows in the house, out through the kitchen, and then out the shop door, and draws the hot air out of the attic as well.
Two other uses: During testing season, I brought it to my school and set it up in an exit door to exhaust air out the warm south-west side of the building and pull it in through the windows on the cooler north-east side. I have also used it to create a high volume airflow to dry out a basement following a burst pipe incident. Read Less

Answer: 
Using my Radio Shack sound level meter (C weighted, slow response) while standing in front of the fan inside my two car garage with the door closed -
12 ft. away 82 dB on high and 74 dB on low
8 ft away 83 dB on high and 76 on low
no matter the numbers I find the fan is rather noisy on the high setting, YMMV.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maxx air 30 inch fan I had purchased this fan in hopes of cooling off the roof while we work during the summer heat. I also have the 24 inch version of the maxx air pro fan. So in regards to the 30 inch version, it is noisy on low and on high, not much more air is blown. The air can be felt at 30 feet from the fan, but has a wide disbursement of air, so don't expect high air velocity to come from the fan. The 24 inch version which retails for $119 vs. $189 for the 30" has nearly the same output, but has a more direct airflow. The 24 inch is pretty quiet on low compared to the 30", so the 24 would make a good indoor large room fan. I would only recommend this fan if one finds the 36 or 42 inch to be too large. August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the pool We love this fan! We use it by the pool. So the biggest complaint anyone has is that it's loud, so makes it hard to talk. I'd do 4.5 stars, but it wouldn't let me. It's easy for me to roll in and out and around which is awesome. September 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 30 inch pro drum fan For as big as it is not nearly the air flow you would expect August 21, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Great I ordered two fans and had them shipped to the store. Both fans were damaged during shipping from being handled roughly and not packaged in the boxes very well. Fans work ok but do not blow as hard as the older Dayton 30" drum fans that they replaced in my shop. I don't think that I would buy these again as there is a considerable performance difference. The Dayton fans just move way more air. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Fan The fan moves a lot of air. It is not too loud! I have only used it 2 days but so far, it has been good. I really like the handle, and the cord wraps around it for easy storage. August 23, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Could be stronger It's a good fan and moved a fair amount of air, but in my opinion the high setting is what I would have expected to be medium on a 3 setting fan. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would recommend I have been looking for a good quality fan for a while, but not one that's too loud. I was visiting a friends shop and noticed the one he was using. It was exactly what I have been looking for. My friend told me it was 2 years old and virtually been trouble free. The wheels are in poor shape, but if that's the worse after 2 years of use, I'm sold. He said he bought it at Home Depot, so I got one the same day. It comes ready to run, right out of the box. I tested it right away. First thing I noticed was mine was a little louder than his was. The new one seems to be pushing more air. I suspect over time the efficiency might lessen and quiet down a bit and push a little less air, but overall I'm very satisfied. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good fan This fan puts out a lot of air. A bit loud on high but that is to be expected. Would have given five stars if the cord had been longer. August 23, 2016
