Only Fan You'll Ever Need
I recently got this fan about a week ago and I just love it so much. I have always liked the design of an Original, it never goes out of date. It's very quiet, moves a ton of air and you can just feel the quality built in the fan. I love that the blade arms are now cast iron to match the motor housing material. I also just really like this new motor tag. When I saw photos of this fan I wasn't too intrigued with the blade color but let me tell you that it looks better in person. I still think the light gray oak side is the worse of the two, only because I feel like the blades should give contrast to the fan. But over all I love this fan, I love how modular it can be and I just love how robust and high quality it feels. If you are thinking abut buying this fan or any Hunter Original, I encourage you to do it. It will last you a life time and you wont be disappointed.

    Hunter never fails to meet my expectations. Replaced a Hunter fan I already had with this one, because this fan is just that solid. The fit and finish, performance, and aesthetic of this fan are nothing short of sublime. I have no doubt this unit will last me decades.

      Nice fan
      So, my 40 year old original Hunter fan bit the dust a few weeks ago. The main reason I decided to spend $500 for a new (original) hunter fan was because 1) I wanted it to match my other two original Hunter fans in my home and 2) I wanted to reuse the globe as I love the 70s/80s look. I knocked off a star because Hunter customer service was a complete waste of my time. I called them to ask if I could reuse the old lighting piece on my new fan and they couldn't answer me. As soon as I asked my electrician, he knew immediately (it helped he was over 40) what I was talking about. Hunter customer service had no clue. Just young female reps following a script. My master electrician installed the fan today and voila, the lighting piece worked perfectly in the new fan! There's still an ever so slight motor noise, but my electrician said that's typical of these motors. I can live with it. He said if you want zero motor noise to buy an electronic fan. Overall, I'm very satisfied and hopefully my review helps anyone inquiring if the old lighting will work in the new Hunter original fan...the answer is yes!

        We love this fan. We are ordering three more as well as five of the four blade type. Quiet and powerful, you don't even know it is running.

          Wobbles like a drunk
          First Hunter I've had that wobbles worse than a drunk -- no amount of weight bring it into balance -- I have several Hunter Fans & this is a first -- this fan is a replacement for one which ran for over 40 years without a problem until the motor quit -- I paid about $200 for the fan "back then" -- with close to a $600 price tag I expected the same level of quality -- I've rechecked the installation & yet to find anything wrong -- the other rooms in the house have Hunter Fans similar to what i just installed & none of them wobble -- frustrating -- it quiet on the swing mount, but scary to look up at the wobble and with the amount of wobble you know it will be noisy at sometime in the future -- cheers

            Used to replace defective Hunter Original fan, high speed is not as fast as original fan purchased in mid 70's. Otherwise satisfied with new fan.

              Installed our current home’s 8th Hunter Original. There is no better ceiling than the Original. Strong but absolutely silent, other than moving air. Easy installation but beware, it is heavy. Simple elegance and a fan you’ll never ever have to replace.
                Don't commingle the blades if you buy more than 1
                These fans are super-solid. If you have a hard to reach, high place that you only want to go once(20 feet off the ground) - I recommend this fan - because you will only install it once and never have to replace it. One word of warning, I have only seen one of these fans wobble and I have installed about 6 of them - if you buy more than one and are using 4 blades....don't use the 5th blade from one fan on another fan. I did this, and the fan wobbled. I was perplexed. I found the blade in question(they are numbered by lot with small stickers) and replaced it with one from the same lot and--- "viola" the wobble disappeared.
