Best Corded/Cordless Jobsite Fan

DEWALT DCE511B 11″ Corded/Cordless Jobsite Fan (Tool Only)

The fan pivots back more than 90° as you may see from my picture. I was concerned the bigger flexvolt battery wouldn’t fit in it but it does with ease. I’m currently conducting a run till dead test to see how long it will run at high-speed with Dewalt’s strongest battery the flex volt 9.0 AH battery. Seems pretty well-made, however, I’m going to hang on to the box to carry it in just to protect it. I hope the DeWALT comes out with a carrying case for this. The hooks pull out from the base allowing you to hang the fan on the job site, which is a nice touch. As many have already posted you can plug it in but not while you have a battery in the battery socket. To use AC will need an extension cord with a female plug on one end just as the DeWALT power pack inverter uses. The description on Amazon says it includes a battery….well it does not. You can use any of the DewALT 20 V or 20/60 flex volt batteries. I paid $85 but it just dropped to $79…. so what are you waiting for?

Well Its run for 3 hours and the LEDs on the battery still show a full charge!

Now at over 16 hours of run time with battery now down to one led still going strong ….

Ok it ran over 17 hours on one charge on high with DeWALTs best battery!!
