14" 1650 CFM 3-Speed Industrial Grade Multi Mount Fan with Pivoting Head
Excellent fan, but...
This fan deserves 5 stars, except it isn't as powerful as you might expect; however, it can be perfect depending on how you might use it.
Depending on what you are trying to achieve by using this fan, you should choose carefully. I bought two of these 9314's to provide some air movement in my two car separated garage. It's only 22 x 23 ft so I thought two smaller fans mounted to my 9 ft ceiling would do, but unfortunately they only work well when you are about 8 ft or less from the fan face. Any further away, and the air movement diffuses two much. It's just not enough airflow to keep the sweat at bay during the hot summer months.
If you tend to stand or work in one place and can mount the fan to point at you, then I would suggest using this fan. But at least for my requirements I need more robust airflow that will reach me when I am working on my back under a vehicle or at the far end of the shop. These fans are very well made and very quiet. I won't be returning them when I purchase a pair of the larger 9318 fans, I'll remount one in my spare bedroom/gym to cool myself off when I'm working out, and maybe use the other as a spot fan when I'm working at the workbench, it's perfect for that. Just enough air flow to cool me off, but not enough to blow my projects to paper manuals away. Still, I highly recommend these fans, but I suggest you get one size larger than you think you need. Just my $.02 One more thing, I believe these fans are made in China, but I couldn't find a label anywhere saying where it was manufactured, not even on the box it came in!

Awesome fan for outdoor kitchen
Just installed 2 of these in our new outdoor kitchen and will be purchasing more for the pergola. These are great fans at a reasonable price

Haven't been able to run it long, but looks good and the lower speed puts out good air and is quiet.
