New Makita DCF300Z 18V Cordless Jobsite Oscillating Fan Hothttp://www.tool-rank.com/media/listing/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/36/c3/8b/Makita-Fan-70-1410942120.jpg
Makita has announced that they have added a new 13-inch cordless fan to their ever growing LXT 18V line. The fan has three speed settings and it can even oscillate to cover a larger area. A built-in timer can be used to automatically shut the fan down after 1, 2, or 4 hours. Makita says it can run for up to 4 hours on a single 4.0Ah battery, but the included AC adapter can be used for longer run times.
Built-in bumpers can handle uneven floors and protect against rough treatment, while the 45-degree adjustable platform allows the user to point the air where it is needed. They say it is built to handle jobsite abuse, and a 3 year is there to back up that claim.
Sure the Makita DCF300Z is meant to be used by tradesman, so paint can dry faster for painters or drywall mud can dry faster for drywallers, but I see it as a way to stay cool on the job. You see, it has be averaging out at 105-degrees here in my neck of the woods and the only thing I can think about it how I can stay cool—this is one option. If only Makita made a cordless air conditioner.
