Makita Cordless Fan Model DCF300Z

Makita has one of the largest lines of 18V power tools available for the professionals.  Lately, we have been testing and using more and more Makita tools.  The more I use them, the more I see why the professionals are buying them up.  They are quality tools that are made to take the abuse of the job site.  The tools are smooth and make any job easier.  Over the last year we have tested and shown off a ton of fans.  Time and time again, we received emails and shout outs about testing the Makita cordless fan.  The people we...

Ridgid GEN5X 18-Volt Hybrid Fan – R860720B

Yes, it’s the year of the fans.  It’s summer time, so what better way to celebrate 100° days than with another fan review.  We have already shown you the Ryobi, Arctic Cove and Milwaukee, now it’s time for the Ridgid 18V fan. By numbers, the Ridgid fan seems to have the best performance between the Ryobi and Milwaukee.  First, it puts out 475 CFM and can run up to 30 hours on one 18V 4.0 Ah battery, I am pretty sure that is on low.  As with the other fans we have tried, this is very versatile.  The head...

Milwaukee M18 Jobsite Fan – 0886-20

Another new item from Milwaukee, a M18 Jobsite fan, how cool.  I don’t really know how to write up this fan without sounding like a brand whore.  All I can say is I love this fan, but I don’t love this fan.  Not only does the fan seem like a high quality fan, but also powerful and durable.  I love how it has 3 different fan settings and the large knob on the front is easy to grab.  Even the battery is in an ideal place and easy to check the battery level.  The adjustable housing is nice because...

Ryobi 18-Volt One Plus Hybrid Fan – P3320

Fans don’t usually excite me, but the new hybrid fan from Ryobi is one cool tool.  Yes it is a tool that cools you down.  The greatest thing is that it runs off of battery or AC power.  You can use any Ryobi One + battery or just regular 120V wall power with a standard extension cord.  With a 4.0 battery you can easily get all day operation from this thing.  it is compact for when you are working in tight areas and has a few mounting options for putting it right where you need it. The head pivots...

Arctic Cove Misting Fan

Have you ever seen a product you just knew was a gimmick, only to find out you were dead wrong?  Well that is what happened with this misting fan.  Before Dan and myself did the unboxing, we kinda of thought this was more of a gimmick.  While the idea seemed cool, how would it really work?  If you watch the video below, we were both very surprised how much water this put out.  Turns out this thing really works.  The bad news is it does take a while for the battery to charge. The good news is if you...
