(5 customer reviews)

Updated and redesigned but working off the original blueprints the Original not only has classic form but modern function with many Hunter innovations built-in including it’s unique motor oil bath to keep it running efficiently for years with the highest airflow in the Hunter range. It has an optional 4 or 5 blade installation, can be used in damp environments and comes with a 25 year Motor warranty.

Original Classic Cast-Iron Heritage from the US Deep South

The Hunter Original is the newly designed and updated Classic Original which is part of Hunter’s Heritage range. It embodies the spirit of Hunter’s 130 year history of being based in Memphis in the deep south of the United States. Generations of American history are wrapped up in this range starting with the Civil War in 1886 through the roaring 1920’s to the great recession of the 1930’s ending with the civil rights movement of the 1960’s. This model will conjure up that original determined spirit of cast-iron perseverance in the face of adversity.

In the age of disposability, few products have earned the right to be called classics. Meticulously reproduced from the archived Hunter design blueprints, the New Original revives the vintage fan in its purest form. A celebration of all things beautiful and well-built, it’s an ideal homage to the power and persistence of Hunter’s cast-iron workhorse. It uses a unique oil-bath lubrication system that has kept the Classic Original fans working flawlessly for decades with an efficient and powerful airflow (the highest and strongest in the Hunter range). These fans are used in some of Europe’s best high-end restaurants including the famous French cuisine Balthazar in Covent Garden (shown to right), London and their branch in Dublin.

  4. Weighs a ton! – Alan Milton (verified owner)

    It feels really solid and weighs a ton to put up but love it – very quiet and smooth.
