Most tower fans built for home use are around the 40-inch range aside from a few exceptions. One of them happens to come from Dyson in the form of the AM08.
It’s another bladeless fan although unique as it can do something the other models can’t.
As Dyson has expanded their fan lineup, we’ve seen some exciting devices hit the market.
The AM08 is one of the company’s larger fans, but not in a traditional sense...
It looks like someone put a small hula-hoop on the end of a pole. While it works in the same fashion as its bladeless brothers, it’s not quite as powerful as the AM07.
This was another fan we hard time finding reputable ratings for, but we estimate it to produce “around” 600 CFM on its highest setting. It has ten speeds and a sleep timer that lets you make adjustments in 15-minute intervals.
The timer goes up to 9 hours and can be controlled through the magnetic remote. It’s an easy machine to operate despite one major drawback.
Don’t Lose The Remote
You can’t set the speed or anything else from the unit, so you’ll need to keep track of the remote. There’s not even a power button, so you would actually need to unplug it if the control goes missing.
That’s a downer, and an odd choice considering the AM07 gives you a measure of control from the base and the TP04 has wireless connectivity.
Despite that drawback, this fan is well-built like the rest of Dyson’s products. It’s made from ABS and has a clean design that’s easy on the eyes.
The circular hoop measures 17-inches diameter which is larger than the 11-inch base. It’s not top heavy, however, and tips the scales at only 8.5 pounds.
As for the height, that’s what sets this fan apart from the rest of the crowd.
Go With The Flow…
Tower fans send air your way through a narrow channel of vents, whereas the Dyson AM08 allows you to control that airflow directly.
You can raise the fan up from around 46-inches to 55-inches from the floor to the top of the hoop. It can also tilt 20-degrees on its own center of gravity and oscillate up to 90-degrees as well.
Our experts and users of this fan also appreciate how simple it is to adjust as you can see in the video below.
This is one of Dyson’s more unique products, and while they whiffed in a few areas, it produces an ample amount of air. We love the fact it tilts as that’s something you won’t find elsewhere and you can say the same for its adjustable stature.
Many users we polled felt it was quiet and appreciated the smooth airflow as well.
The AM08 comes with a 2-year warranty, remote control, and a user’s guide.
