The product design is a standout in a minimalist sense. It is clean and has a classic look of a tool.
Its squirrel cage design makes for efficient pivoting, so air can easily be directed. It is also very quiet, considering that it is a utility fan.
As a blower, the Stanley 655704 can be held on three handles to easily direct its nozzle to dry leaves, a wet carpet, and many more. Its nozzle can also tilt forward and back because of its squirrel cage design.

My Own Thoughts On Stanley Multi Purpose Fan
I really like this fan because it is not only an air circulator but also a utility tool. I like that it functions as a blower and that I will never be dubious about its power. However, I do not recommend this as a bedroom fan, mainly because it is not as ornamental as I would have liked to.
I also recommend that if you get this fan, set it aside and away from children. The kids might stick their finger into the grills, which would be troublesome.
