well..when it comes to power tools or electric devices of any kind, I would never buy the "house brand" from Harbor freight, Northern Tool, Tractor Supply, Costco, Walmart, etc..because they are overwhelmingly cheap chinese junk..

but..I dont know anything about this *specific* fan..could it be perfectly fine? maybe..but the odds are strongly against it, just because of its genealogy and the company it keeps. I would pass.

Check your local auctions...

I picked up a new Dayton 24" industrial pedestal fan back in June for $88.00
Cheapest price online was $476.00
Always on low speed, moves a lot of air.
Weighs 66 lbs and the motor is something you might see on a table saw.

Now if I can only find a similar deal on a snowblower !
