How can I clean the blades?  The screws used to assemble it are tamper proof.  Will you send me a bit or screwdriver so I can properly maintain my 2 fans?

Asked by Nick R March 17, 2021

Answer

If you have access to an air compressor, just use an air sprayer.  Seems to work pretty well for me.

Can the Fan Blade be Cleaned?

Asked by Mike October 11, 2019
5
Answers

Yes, fan shroud is removable and blades are very easy to wipe down with any all purpose cleaner. I have blown through job site fans made by the blue, red, and/or yellow teams—this fan’s form and function is far superior. They move far more air due to the blade’s larger size and pitch, and their energy consumption is far less. I’ve run the math looking at utilization on high with 2AH batteries and they just run forever. Hope this helps.

Great Dorm Fan
I bought this fan to use in my dorm. I love it! My mom liked it so much that she bought her own to use in her room!
by Jake
Great for Hurricane power outages
This is a great battery powered fan. I have 3 of these fans, 3- 3amp batteries, 1- 6amp battery, and 1 charger. I was without electricity for 2 weeks after Hurricane Rita in the Texas gulf coast. I bought these for Hurricane season and they run about 6 hrs on a charge and have been great. I find myself using them in a hot attic or on the patio or driveway or backyard when I'm working on a project during the day outside in the hot Texas humidity. I did finally purchase a small 2200 watt H.F. generator to run our fridge & freezer and I can plug in the charger if I don't have power. I did catch these on a Rigid tool promotion where you got a free battery with the charger or other Rigid tool you bought, so it made it more affordable to get as many as I did. They are expensive to have to buy the fan/battery/and charger as separate units. If you can afford them, then the fan works great and last a long time in a charge and will keep you comfortable at night if your a/c is not working. We cc an get by with 1 fan for two people in 1 bedroom. We bought 3 units so we could have one for wife and I, one for son & his wife to sleep at night, and one for the two granddaughters when the hurricane knocks out the power. You do have to have a way to charger the batteries the next day, but not having to run the extension cords to each room is nice, or if the are at a different house close by, we can charge their batteries using our generator. The fans do cool you down at night and lets you sleep more comfortable. I wish they would incorporate a way to change the batteries using a USB. I have a solar charger USB power bank that allows you to charge a phone Without electricity. This would be great if I could charge these batteries using solar during the day and not have to have a generator. Great fan, great wind output, price without the promotion deal can be a bit high for many customers who could use this.

Mini tornado. Nice even breeze, nicer than a box fan and far more powerful. Was great to keep bugs away while painting, and worked to keep air moving in the tent all night while camping. I used a 4ah battery at about 3/4 speed and it lasted around 8 hours.

Absolutely perfect! Ran it on high with a 3AH battery and 7 hours later it was still running! Totally Impressed but not shocked since I am 100% sold on Ridgid products!

Best portable fan!
This Ridgid fan is amazing. With only a 2.0 AH battery it can run 4 hrs on high and 18 hrs on the lowest setting. With a 3.0 AH battery it runs 5 1/2 hrs on high and 24 hrs on the lowest speed. This is perfect for a cool breeze in my tent when I am trying to sleep. Also use it when under my car changing oil
