Hey, do you think I could use that fan for A/C on my snowmobile? Of cource I'd need to find a cheap(free)generator to power it. That shouldn't be too hard though. I'm sure someone here could help me with that.

Can somebody find that fan and point it northwest to blow this cold air back to where it came from?? sick.gif

Or send that fan to Michigan to blow some snow to MN so it looks like your avatar.

I had to finally check this thread out...

I am definitely happy to know there is at least one "Box fan" out there ;\) Maybe a BoxMN fan, even? ha!

Was putting together a science fair project for the kids this past weekend.....I am making a tornado in a box using a plexiglass box with a smoke machine and.........a fan!!!

I was thinking that this 20" one would work just about perfect for producing a big vortex.

Please send pics if still available. They just don't make fans like they used to and I don't want my daughter to cry when she doesn't win the science fair because her tornado wasn't as big as the Johnson's kids'. Right now all we have is a 12v computer fan and that just seems a little wimpy to me.

Thanks,

While out working a couple weeks back, driving on my from northfield to randolph something happened to catch my eye as I cruising the back country roads. As I thought to myself, no that couldn't have been, it couldn't have made it this far south, but curiousty got the best of me and lo and behold there she sat on the shoulder of the road. If this is the orginal it seems to have picked up a printer as a companion in the meantime.

While out working on the same run last week just as quickly as it had shown, it was gone. I never got a good enough look to notice if their were any stickers or missing blades nor did I see an orange VW van anywhere as well. This may be just a coincidence but then again maybe not, you decide. Happy travels to that fan....

Man, this post is like a bad fart, kind just hovers around out there and comes back and slaps ya in the face when you least expect it.

It is kinda funny that the first thing I think of when I see a fan on the side of the road is a post on fishingminnesta, gotta love it.

Is a 20" fan big enough to turn into the wind to cancel out a wind chill factor?

The other question is if I did use this fan in the summer, would a Kansas City Royals sticker make the fan start quickly, fade around the All-Star Break and then just quit in August?

Or maybe it is the immunity idol on Survivor's "Fans versus Favorites" show. Out there lurking around somewhere on exile island.

Man this took on a life of its own. Who'd have thought a simple Box could be a fan and have so many other fans! What a post, great to see we are all old enough to see that some things are still funny just because they are the way they are!

I'm sensing some humor or mocking in this thread let us not forget that was somebody's fan, made by a real person bought and sold by great people who enjoyed and still to this day love this fan while not even knowing for certain hows it's doing!

So take a look in the mirror along with a deep breath before you post in this thread again.

Thanks Pier!

I took a deep breath and passed out. Fat guys shouldn't ever do that. I might have damaged my melon if I weren't so thick skulled.

      I can't figure  out how enough heat would form to cause a problem. What part could be getting hot?  That sort of makes sense but then it will start and quit again quite quickly.  I don't  know what engine it has and that's a problem with it.  Finding the parts is troublesome even with Jack's Small Engine.

      thats the engine on the one i have.

      The not restarting for hours....   Could it possibly be an ignition thing where as it gets hot it stops providing spark and has to cool all the way down to start again?     That's the only thing besides flooding I can think of.   Typically, isn't the spark on small engines produced by magnets on the flywheel going by a coil?    So when it quits and won't restart, is it getting spark?      And is the plug wet when it quits?        Has it got the Honda motor or something else?

      That's odd Tom, I have a power washer from northern tool also. Not sure which one but only issues I've had with mine is I had to replace both tires???🙄🙄
    • Tom7227
      Full throttle before I even start to spray.  When trying to restart it pulls easy and I keep the wand open to assure it doesn't get backed up.  I agree it has to be a fuel issue.  But the tank to engine line is a straight shot except for the fuel shut off valve.  When I was replacing the carb the fuel would run out of the fuel line quite a bit until I remembered to shut off the fuel line.   The gas has been brand new non-oxy every time I have tried it.

      When you try to restart it does it pull easy or hard?   When mine has water pressure built up, it pulls hard to start.  I trigger the wand to release the pressure so it starts easier.   Maybe the hours for yours is due to pressure that needs to bleed off?  Hard to tell not being there.     I can kill mine at low throttle just by spraying.  Are you running yours at a high throttle position?  Again, hard to tell without hearing the RPMs of the engine.   Otherwise for fuel, it could be a blockage or venting issue anywhere in the system. If there wasn’t a change in performance with the change of carburetor, the carburetor is probably not the issue.  If it sat with old gas for a while something could be varnished up and the engine starves for gas until it quits.  Taking hours to get enough fuel flowing again to run seems odd if you actually get to run it hard enough to spray for even a few minutes.   Hearing the way it behaves would help a lot for me.   I’ve had pressure washers that you’re not supposed to let idle for extended time without spraying and others like my current one that bypass just fine while it’s running.  I’m just wondering if your killing it on high pressure AND low idle.  Mine will die every time that way.
    • Tom7227
      It is a Powerhorse, the northern tool house brand.  It dies while I am spraying.  If I replaced the carb what more fuel issues could there be?  The carb replacement took about 5 minutes and was extremely simple.

      I retired 2½ years ago.  My wife finally agreed to move up north after she retires the end of 2021.  When she retires there is nothing that would keep us in the cities.  Blaine has been very peaceful over these turbulent times, but I have a lot of buckshot for my three 12ga shotguns just to be safe.  Anywhere from Barnum to Soudan would be fine for us (easy day trip to Vermilion).  Would go as far west as Grand Rapids.  Would love to live on Vermilion but the prices are just too high now.  Best of luck to you.
    • smurfy
      How far north?????🤔😅
    • leech~~
      Wife just retired. I retire next May. Hope to follow you north before the next round of riots and lotting in Brooklyn Center! 👍
