Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PMN3 This product is a workhorse. We have it on 24/7
The original reason for the purchase of this fan was to use it as a cooling device for our compressor on our walk-in freezer at our soup kitchen. It needs to run 24/7 and is critical for the smooth running of the freezer which contains thousands of pounds of meat. Most recently we have also used the fan for the installation of new flooring in our kitchen/dining area which serves a free meal to the poor of the community. So far, the fan has been working perfectly, the size is ideal for our purposes, we like the variable speeds, and overall we are very happy with the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by vicki Great Fan
I purchased this fan to replace a similar one (also purchased at Home Depot) that was damaged beyond repair by a construction contractor in my home.
I was looking for a high-powered fan that could really move a lot of air and exhaust the home. Well, this fan did not disappoint.
I only gave it four stars for two reasons: (1) It is not as sturdy in construction as my old fan, and also moves SLIGHTLY less air than the old one. But, for my needs, it is the best on the market. (2) When I opened the box upon delivery a screw was missing. Not a big deal; I just went to the local hardware store and picked up a package of screws that would match the one that was in the box. (Two are needed to assemble.) However, it would have been nice had both screws been in the box.
In all fairness, I am not sure the less-sturdy construction is a negative. The casing on my old fan was heavier than on this one, but it was also top-heavy and often moved around when on the "high" setting. This fan has a much better base, and it does NOT move around when the fan is on the high setting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thomas I'm glad I bought this fan. I think I will have it a long time.
The MaxxAir 20-inch floor fan puts out a lot of air and is fairly quiet. We use it on our porch to help cool us and to keep the mosquitos and no-see-ums off of us. It is all metal, sturdy, stable, well-made, and takes up little area. Since it is a floor fan, it is not a visual obstruction. It has 3 speeds and we've only used the lowest fan speed so far. Directions say the fan will not need lubrication since it is sealed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buddy Lots & lots of air
This is a nice fan, it moves a lot of air, is quite sturdy, has 3 speeds, however the lowest setting is still way to fast and will blow you away, that's the only speed I use and is faster than my previous fans hi speed. I like the overall performance and would buy again in a heartbeat, it's all metal construction and has an aluminuim fan blade that has hardly any viberation, if it had a lower speed it would be a 10 star, if you want a nice little fan that moves a lot of air, you found it. PS. As for some reviewers saying it falls backwards when it's on, I don't know how unless maybe they put the base on backward, I've had no such problem at all. Marvin

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJC5 Powerful!
I purchased this fan about a year ago and have used it heavily. It's a really awesome fan, especially for the price. It's rated at 3,500 CFM, and I've since tried fans claiming 6,500 CFM. They were more expensive and less powerful, so I returned them to get more of these. It's a bit loud but I don't mind since it does such a great job. I can't find my box for it, but I'm pretty sure it was made in the USA. Some minor assembly was required (2 screws for the base). I used it in place of an air conditioner for an entire summer and it kept me cool enough. I highly recommend this fan.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike MISSING SCREW???
OTHERS HAVE HAD THE SAME OPINION AND COMMENT REGARDING THIS PRODUCT. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH IT MUST BE A PRACTICE IN THE FACTORY WHERE THIS PRODUCT IS MADE AND PACKAGED TO JUST "CONVENIENTLY" DEVELOP AMNESIA AND DELIBERATELY FORGET TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE 2 (TWO) SCREWS YOU NEED TO KEEP THE LEGS ON THE FAN. I RECEIVED ONLY 1 (ONE) OF THEM. THAT'S A CONSISTENT MISTAKE. AND THE CONSISTENCY MEANS THAT IT ISN'T A MISTAKE......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kimbeanie Floor fan that can move some air!
Man oh man, can this fan ever move some air! I ran a power monitor on it and on Low it only pulls 120 watts, Medium pulls 133 watts, and on High it only pulls 152 watts. The volume of air on high is enough to keep you cool in a garage setting. I made a mount and cover for it and set it in the window of my utility room. I can pull almost 2,800 cfm through the house on High. It is awesome. It will work great with a true sign wave inverter (DO NOT use a modified sign wave inverter) with solar panels as that is how I have mine set up for hot summer days.
