Price Range: $50 -- $75
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a compact, highly versatile utility fan that’s ideal for many purposes which require precise airflow, such as drying floors or home furniture.
At first glance, the Stanley High Velocity Blower Fan looks like it’s a fan built to last. It comes in a well-built, rugged unit constructed from thick plastic. It’s high durability means it can withstand daily knocks and bumps very well.
At 7.6 lbs, with a footprint measuring 12.2 inches long and 9.62 inches wide, it’s compact and lightweight enough to easily transport. It’s large carry handle helps make transporting it even easier.
To give you a convenient way to power accessories such as power tools, the unit features two 120v grounded power receptacles on-board. For safety, the outlets are equipped with a 10-amp circuit breaker with reset button, so if the maximum amperage is exceeded, the breaker is automatically tripped. The power cord itself is longer than we see on most fans- a heavy-duty 8 foot long three-prong grounded plug.
Pivoting Fan Head
The fan body holds the squirrel cage style fan in a sealed housing, and is designed as such so fingers cannot touch the blades inside.
Impressively, the flexible, swivel fan head allows for a full range of vertical movement, so you can direct air right down to the floor or high up for things like drying walls or ceilings. Performance-wise, this fan delivers some real oomph at it’s highest speed thanks to it’s rated airflow of 350 CFM.
The side-located Power Center features a speed control knob where you can select from three fan speeds, ranging from 3,2,1.
