    I'm using box fans still, going to mount a couple of ag fans up above the stalls for the aisle this summer.

    The same with us - taking down the box fans after I found about the risk of fire - and the fact many were recalled due to starting fires!! - and switching to the ag fans.......

    Anyone know of a good buy on them???

    I use the Lasko box fans, last year they came out with a supposedly weatherproof version, so I bought those at Wal-Mart. The newer models also have a built in circuit breaker in the plug to help with short-out fire situations.

    The recall is for fans manufactured between 2002-2004:

    I stopped using Lasko after the first recall a few years ago. I bought the heavy metal round fans from Lowes or Home Depot. They run about $40. They are fairly easy to hang from the rafters.
