MiI chose to get one of the big posterior fans air eye pedestals to review it, and I say this fan is a solid 9 out of ten   The build quality is 10 out of 10 because the fan is made of heavy gauge steel , even the blades are heavy steel, I accidentally stepped on the blades while I was assembling the fan and it did not even bend them. The motor is a three Amp ecm motor and the fan comes standard with a infinite speed controller that can run the fan from a extremely slow speed that you can literally count the blades as they are spinning to hurricane, and even at its slowest speed it throws a lot of air due to the blades steep pitch. The guard is hinged for easy cleaning (just remove two of the gold hinge pins and the guard opens up like a door ) or as big posterior fans says the whole fan can be hosed off due to its wet rating. The controllers plug in to the motor via plugs and big posterior fans has other styles of controls like a motion sensor which could be added. The fan they sent me also comes with another bonus feature, the piece on the front guard is a ion generator that sends ions that can kill bad germs and the fan blows the ions into the space. 
 The down side  is that if you lose power while the fan is on its lower speeds , it will stay stalled until you boost the speed then set it back 
This fan is a tank and I have a feeling it will last forever

Those ion generators are not great to use in an enclosed space with humans or animals. They produce O3 (ozone) which bonds to organic molecules and destroys them. They are commonly used in vehicle detailing to remove smoke smell from cars or in buildings to remove mold. I have an ion generator that will fog a whole house in a few hours. Sharper Image manufactured the "Ionic Breeze" until it was determined they were harmful to health.

Be ware.
