Hunter 23980 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sturdy Fan Simple enough installation with a couple of additional pieces packed such as an additional screw in case needed for the fan blade connection. Overall a good quality fan with no wobble at even high speeds. Definitely would recommend for its outdoor use and the color which hides all the dirt that accumulates on the motor and fan blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 Hunter Fans on our deck We recently remodeled our deck, replacing the cedar decking with composite, adding a roof and a gazebo. To finish it off, we added 4 Hunter fans - 3 Hunter Bridgeport outdoor fans on the deck and a Hunter Bayview in the gazebo with a light kit. We are very happy with the fans - fits right in when having coffee or meeting with friends,
