Ventry Fan Model 24GC160

  • 0.00

This is the most affordable and the lightest weight of the large model Ventry® Fans. It has the long, efficient, 24-inch propeller and a 4.6 hp Honda GC160 engine. The GC160 motor is an economy option, rated as a residential duty motor. It is a dependable, simple motor with minimal, intuitive controls and a good solution for those on limited budgets.

ALL-TERRAIN LEGS. Three outward-curving, independently adjustable legs made of solid, aircraft-grade aluminum, each having an easy-to-grab locking knob for fast, secure adjustments. They give the fan three-point stability, unlimited tilt/aiming and fast deployment. Legs provide a rock-solid stance and truly stand-alone operation, no matter the terrain or obstacles (snow, stairs, standing water, debris, rose bushes...).

VENTRY SAFETY PROPELLER. Two-blade, aircraft style, state-of-the-art propeller, engineered specifically for the 4.6 hp motor. Provides high CFM, longevity, and fail-safe performance.

CLEARANCE. Up to 14 inches between propeller and ground allows no intake of foreign matter so debris won’t be picked up or plug the fan. For added safety and performance, always extend the legs on your Ventry Fan when in use, even if it’s only 6 inches!

FREE-FLOW GUARD. Un-shrouded, double reinforced wire guard allows maximum air supply to the propeller which increases air volume (CFM) and decreases noise. Video: noise drops and CFM increases as a solid shroud is removed from a Ventry Fan in this demonstration.

DUAL SIDE HANDLES. Side handles provide an easy, fast way for one or two people to lift and carry the fan.

LONG DISTANCE VENTILATION. Forward sweeping propeller tips produce narrow, consistent air stream for placement far from the target (8-15 ft is ideal). Fan is well out of the way of crew and equipment and allows safer and more effective ventilation.

GC HONDA ENGINE. The Honda GC motor is light weight and compact. It features simplified controls for intuitive operation.

WARRANTIES. Backed by a 3-month warranty on the Honda motor, our overall 5-year “No BS” warranty on workmanship and materials, and Lifetime Factory Support.

Out of all available Accessories, these may be added to fan model 24GC160.

SPARK ARRESTER. Installed inside the muffler to capture and prevent sparks from exiting the motor during operation. Required on all engines operated within U.S. national parks.

TACHOMETER. Digital display shows RPM and total hours on the generator. Helpful for performance report, diagnostics, and maintenance.

SMALL SOLID RUBBER WHEELS & SKIDS. 5-inch diameter, solid polyurethane wheels with ABEC-5 bearings for smooth rolling; long handle that moves up/down from center of the fan; stair skids which protect the guard and let you roll fan easily over stairs/curbs. Ideal for urban environments and mostly smooth ground.

MEDIUM FLAT-FREE WHEELS & SKIDS. 6-inch diameter wheels made of hard polyurethane which can never go flat; long handle that moves up/down from the center of the fan; stair skids which protect the guard and let you roll the fan easily over stairs/curbs. Ideal for rough and unpacked terrain.

LARGE PNEUMATIC TIRES. 8.5 x 3 inch, air filled tires; long handle that moves up/down from the center of the fan (stair skids not needed as the wheels are large enough to protect the guard). Ideal for off-road, rough terrain, rocks, and gravel.

VENTRY FILTERED MISTING RING. 15-inch stainless steel ring with 8 adjustable brass nozzles and a 22 micron filter and flush valve. Connects to a standard garden hose. Dramatically decreases temperatures. Effective for cooling and rehab, salvage and overhaul, dust control and more.
