I don't know, but it's much less the previous brands sold at Walmart. I've had six other 20" fans of this cost from Walmart and this one moves much less air with more noise. The motor also seems much weaker, noisier, and mine was also very out of balance. I suggest you try another brand even if it does cost more.

Sorry, checked the box markings, the instruction brochure and the unit and there is no CFM labeling. Its a 20", 60v, 3speed, 110 degree pivot point stand unit, that uses a grounded power plug, but there is no additional information on this model. Good Luck!

My previous answer has not been approved yet, but I wanted to update with the CFM rating on this fan.

Found this info on the powermax chinese web site:

5936 CFM @ 1480RPM (on high)
1.36 Amps
164 watts

And it seems that might be underrated. I have a Lasko Wind Machine 20", which is rated for 4780 CFM (on high), and this fan, ON LOW, produces better airflow.

I read somewhere that these use Generation 3 blades, which may be more efficient than the plastic blades on the Wind Machine. This really is a great fan for the money. I will probably buy 1 or 2 more for my Florida garage.

I just got this fan today. There does not appear to be any CFM labeling on the packaging, but I can give you an idea. Plugged in, in the kitchen (to test it out), I can angle it upwards, stand a good 8-10 feet away, and still feel a 20-25mph breeze coming from this thing... ON LOW!

It really is a great fan for the money, and my local wal-mart had it FIVE DOLLARS cheaper than listed online.

I have used previous brands from Walmart in an attic, but this one does not move nearly as much air, has a weak motor, vibrates badly, and makes more noise. I'd recommend another brand. Previous models have lasted between 2 and 5 years of heavy use.

answer 4
There is a heavy durable 3-prong power outlet plug. The fan has three speeds, highest speed will cool an entire 1000sq ft space without overload and has entire metal housing and mechanics, so it would appear this would work adequately for an attic. You might consult an electrician about any safety concerns.

answer 5
I would not recommend leaving it up in the attic, as the heat could be bad for the bearings (or bushings) that are in the motor.

If your attic is not well ventilated, it probably won't do very much (other than move hot air around) unless you use it as an EXHAUST fan.

Just shy of 6 ft. Also, the 3-prong plug has the little notch on the plastic back, to self- link it onto cord after wrapping around fan-

Wire-cage handles incorporated on back, (top & bottom), which double as both a convenient lift/carry hand-slot, & cord-wrap storage. This fan is incredibly well-made, with every detail thought out. I don't know how many years it will last (I had 2 running non-stop for 3 entire summers, working perfectly when they were stolen by my movers / in upscale community- I now have 2 more!)
