If you ever needed to bring down your bills with the A/C, then this is for you. The Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan is a powerful air circulator that would make you lie low on the A/C usage for a long time.
Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan Overview
Lasko has made a couple of great utility fans. I have reviewed a similar product, the Stanley 655704 Utility fan or the Lasko Stanley high velocity blower fan. These two fans are quite similar, but the Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan is heftier.
The Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan comes in gray and black, and it almost looks like a freestanding car air conditioning unit. It has a pivoting head that directs air in one direction. It is ideal to have it steady on you when you are working at the garage or a workshop, or when you want to dry a carpet or a wet floor. It is also great for circulating air with its head fully tilted upward or facing a wall.
It is a floor fan that takes some space with its size. Aesthetically, it is not very ornate. Instead, it is simple and quite rugged – it will not attract any attention.
You are really going to buy the Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan for its power.
What’s Different About Lasko Pivoting Fan?
The Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan can be an air circulator and a blower. As an air circulator, you use it as a floor fan. You can easily leave this at any corner with its head facing directly upward, against the wall, or steady on yourself. As a blower, you can easily pivot its head to the direction of what you need to be dried quickly.
On its side, it has two 120-volt accessory outlet. If you are working at a garage, you can plug in your tools in it.
It has a 3-prong grounded plug. Lasko does not advice the use of an adaptor or cutting the grounding prong, as it might create the risk of electric shock.
It also has a 10-amp breaker reset. When it is tripped, simply unplug the unit and push the reset button on the side of the fan. It is also advisable to not only turn off the unit when moving the fan but also unplugging it for maximum safety. The Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan has three handles, so it is easy to move around and reposition.
Note that although this is a utility fan, the Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan does not meet the standards for use in agricultural or hazardous facilities.

Who’s the Lasko Utility Fan For?
The Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan is great for dads with garages and workshops. The two additional outlets can really help with plugging in additional tools, not to mention that its breaker reset reduces risks with electrical overloading.
It is also great for wide living spaces. Some people claim that it can circulate air from 30 feet away. As long as you position the unit’s head efficiently, its power will surely suffice. I personally like ornamental fans for my bedroom, but if you live in a studio-type apartment without A/C, then this can work. You can circulate air from your kitchen, living room, to your bedroom easily.
The Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan is generally quiet, so you can sleep with this on, and it will only feel like ambient noise.
Any Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Fan Complaints?
There are a lot of reviews Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan, and some of them are too hyped. True enough, it has great air circulating power, but the noise at high speed can be disruptive at times. There are also complaints with some units having a whirring or a rattling sound after a few years of use.
My Thoughts On The Lasko Utility Fan
I like the power of the Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan, as with the power of all Lasko utility fans. It is simple, and its noise is generally non-disruptive. Between this and the Stanley, Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan works better for bigger rooms and bigger households. The unit’s color is also easier on the eyes, especially when you keep taking this to do gritty work at a garage or a workshop.
It is quite expensive and hefty, but I think this is a good investment if you like working on craft or automotive projects especially in the summer.
