Item Description
Just in time for summer - we now carry an 18" basket fan designed especially for agricultural use. Unlike most fans which are NOT meant for use in barns, this fan has a totally enclosed motor with sealed ball bearings meaning it can be used in wet locations! These fans can even be sprayed down to remove dust and dirt, making them an excellent choice for wash bays and stables.
A few specifics about our premium fan:
  • UL507 Certified for indoor/outdoor use. Designed for agricultural applications.
  • Waterproof - can be sprayed down to remove dust and dirt build-up.
  • 3 speed - no variable controller required (Thrust CFM: High = 2,210, Medium = 1,870, Low = 1,420)
  • Attached 8' cord with a 3-prong plug (GFCI recommended on all circuits)
  • Versatile mounting bracket allows for easy tilt or swivel of fan to change direction and angle of air movement
  • Aluminum blades with black powder coated corrosion-resistant fan guards
  • 1/5 HP motor, 2 Amp, 115 Volts, 60 Hz, Direct Drive
  • Thermally protected
  • Quiet operation
  • Pull-chain
  • Pre-assembled - mounting hardware included
  • Air-over-motor cooled
  • Totally enclosed, maintenance-free, direct drive high-efficiency motors, have completely sealed ball bearings, UL and CUL recognized, and are covered by a One Year Warranty.
It is important to note that many fans sold in farm and home improvement stores are dangerous to use in barns. These include all box fans and most floor type basket fans.  Unless the fans have completely sealed motors, they will NOT be rated for agricultural use.  Be sure to check the instruction manual before purchasing - as many will state on the front page "for residential use only".  This is true for ceiling fans as well (ours are also agricultural rated).
Electrical fires are a leading cause of preventable horse deaths. In 2007, 44 horses were killed in a barn fire caused by a fairly new box fan. There is a website dedicated to fire safety in barns - check out their stories on how the wrong fans can be a deadly cost-cutting measure! Don't become a statistic...
