Ventry PPV Fan Model 24GX160

  • 0.00

Gasoline powered Ventry® Fan with the long, 24-inch propeller and a 4.8 hp Honda GX160 engine. This model is most often utilized as a positive pressure ventilation blower by fire fighters. It’s also a great choice as a stump fan (brush burner) and for hot air balloon inflation.

This is our engineer’s favorite model, “a real workhorse,” he calls it, noting that the Honda GX160 is commonly found on heavy duty equipment because it is tried and true. This model is a great balance of horsepower, weight, and output.

ALL-TERRAIN VERSATILITY. The three independently-adjustable legs on this fan give it three-point stability, unlimited tilt/aiming, and fast deployment. No matter the terrain or obstacles, the outward curving legs provide a rock-solid footprint and truly stand-alone operation. Legs provide the versatility to perform well in any terrain, any season, any scene.

VENTRY SAFETY PROPELLER. Two-blade, aircraft style, state-of-the-art propeller, engineered specifically for the 4.8 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.

GX160 HONDA ENGINE. The Honda GX160 is a heavy-duty motor featuring cast iron bores, low-oil shut off protection, an on/off switch separate from the throttle, and a fuel shut-off valve.

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