My new 4 x 4 grow tent arrived today and I am shopping for interior oscillating fans. I've been using the Holmes Blizzard oscillating 8-inch desk fan in my closet grow. Hanging it upside down. The first one burned out after running about a year non-stop. The second one broke in just 3 months and I'm trying to get refunded by manufacturer warranty. The plastic broke near the mechanism that controls the oscillating. Again, it was running 24 hours a day. I think I'm done with Holmes fans. But I really can't find another 8-inch oscillator of any type. It's really the perfect fan for a 4 x 4. Wish the damned things would keep running. I'd like one that can mount securely at the top of the grow tent blowing down in oscillating fashion. I don't think a 6-inch fan is good enough. I do have an expensive, heavy floor fan that is oscillating. 12-inch and it is 26 inches tall. A designer fan for a bedroom. It's all-metal and built to last forever but I don't want to take up the floor space. That's too much to give up. Any suggestions for fans? Links would be helpful. I want an oscillator, preferably fans that can clamp onto tent frames.

I've never found any clamp on fans that aren't a complete crap shoot, some go a year or more some bust in a week just seems to be the nature of the beast.

I've got two cheap vertical rotating fans in the bottom of the tent. Only use them early in veg. Also a non rotating clip fan above the light. Plus a 6 inch inline on a temp and humidity control.

Once the plants filled to the tent edges I had moisture issues so I took out one of the rotators and added a powered inline duct fan. It runs 24x7 and keeps things stable.
