This is my emerson pedestal fan fully extended. Didn't know it went this high. My dad is 6' 2" so that is a little comparison on how tall this fan is.

Wow! Why would a pedestal fan need to extend to a height of 8 feet? That's as high the ceilings in most houses, also doesn't seem like it would do much air moving at that height...

we have that exact fan at church ours isnt extended that tall, but a good 4 feet above the pole overlap. In the old days when people came to church in wool suits even in the summer and the ladies had linen dresses  and such. that one fan had to cool everyone so the air flow went up and over the pews and everything, so i guess high was necessary

Cool !! I wouldn't think the fan extending that high would be necessary,plus wouldn't it be more unstable and likely fall over despite the bases weighing over 50 lbs ? The church I grew up going to had 4 pedestal fans a Diehl 3 wing aluminum bladed oscillator,and a Hunter Zephaire on the alter at 6 ft high and 2 Chelsea's up on the confessionals !!

I would imagine some of the larger southern homes had some pretty high ceilings. You also have to consider that fan was probably made with a commercial business application in mind. Department stores, banks churches, bakeries etc.It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it  :P
