The RAMM 18" indoor/outdoor basket fan is designed specifically for agricultural use. Unlike most fans, which are not meant for use in barns, the RAMM 18" basket fan has an enclosed motor with sealed ball bearings, so it can be used in wet locations! These fans are an excellent choice for wash bays and stables.

  • Aluminum blades powder-coated black with corrosion-resistant fan guards meet OSHA 1910.212(a)(5) requirements for installation at any height

Important Note: 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 agriculturally rated).

Electrical fires are a leading cause of preventable horse deaths. In 2007, 44 horses were killed in a barn fire caused by a relatively 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...

Owner's Manual

CAUTION: Please read and follow all instructions before operating your 18" basket fan. Do not use it if any part is damaged or missing.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, do not use this fan with any solid-state speed control device. This appliance has a 3-prong plug. To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this plug is intended to fit in an outlet only one way. If this does not fit the outlet, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to bypass this procedure

 

Rules for Safe Operation 

  • Do not insert a finger or any objects through the grill guard when the fan is in operation.

  • Disconnect the fan when moving from one location to another. 

  • Disconnect the fan when removing guards for cleaning.

  • Do not use the fan in a window; rain and moisture may create an electrical hazard.

  • Make sure the fan is on a stable, flat surface when in operation.

 

Operation Instructions

  • To adjust airflow upward or downward, tilt the head of the fan to the desired angle.

  • Pull gently on the chain to change the setting on the speed control to the desired setting: low, medium, or high.

  • Install the fan onto a solid, vertical surface with the appropriate 3/8" hardware (included) through the large mounting hole in the bracket for permanent fan mounting.

 

Cleaning Instructions

  • WARNING:  Unplug from the electrical supply source before cleaning. After servicing, any safety device (including grills and blades) must be reinstalled or remounted as previously installed.

  • Use a damp, soft cloth - then wipe with a dry cloth. Do not use harmful cleaners or bend the blades. 

- "I received the fan in record fast time and it meets all my expectations." - Therese, OR

- "The quality of these fans are so good, considering the price. We feel so much safer having these fans on instead of the box fans that aren’t meant to be in barns. We can sleep without having nightmares about barn fires now ;) The air flow is also great. Even on the lowest setting, these fans have way more air flow than other brands. Will definitely buy more again!"

- "We love the fans. We have over 20 of them and have not had any trouble with them. They are in our horse stalls and work really well. The horses love them."

- "Love the horse stall fan! Puts out lots of air, looks well built!" - Robin, AL

- "We hung our fans last night and WOW do they make the barn look even fancier! And such a small price to pay for the SAFETY of using enclosed motor fans. Love the three-speed settings. Our horses are pampered with these fans - as they should be!"
