        DC motor and led light that’s why. It’s a bargain for that price although reviews are 50/50 on quality

          Had this fan installed for over two years now, great fan. I love the reverse function on the remote.
          As an ex-sparky I have installed loads of fans and this gets my approvals. My only advice would be don't use the crimp connectors that come with it.Also the internal remote was quite large making it difficult to install on raked ceiling.

          •  

            @DisabledUser266835: Do you know who the manufacturer is ? I've had some Arlec fans and all of them had the LED lights in them blow within a month . Absolute junk .

              @troyww: casa life i believe. i've got 4 installed to my house. So far so good and for a DC motor with LED light, pretty good price.

          •  

            @DisabledUser266835: Cam this fan be installed under patio outdoors?

            •  

              @iversonjack: It's not waterproof,so as long as it is protected from the rain it should be fine. Get an electrician to put a plug on it and make it safe and then you can install yourself with extension lead.

          •  

            @DisabledUser266835: Hi mate will this be suitable fora 2.4 m high ceiling

            •  

              @otter-raptor: Probably not, if you have to get a fan for a 2.4 don't get integrated light. But hey I'm over 6ft, it might work for you if you are shorter.

              •  

                @DisabledUser266835: I'm thinking of getting a low profile fan and deck the house with fans, sick of aircon bills and pedestal fans are inconvenient

        •  

          Yep, I've also had a few of these Fans for a couple of years and I think they're great! They're not perfect but I've bought fans for three times as much in the past that aren't anywhere near as good as these. I found the higher speeds just end up creating turbulence so I treat No.3 three as 'high'. The light is crazy bright but we usually use floor lamps so only switch it on when cleaning etc. All in all I think they're great.

          Why is a DC motor fan better than an AC? I picked up 5 AC fans for my place 5 years ago (Heller Trinity) with remote control kits, and all fans are working fine years later, one remote kit failed but was replaced very easily. They have an E27 screw but thats pretty handy these days since led bulbs can be bought cheap and if they do ever go easily replaced. Fan can be reversed but requires you to toggle a switch on thr unit itself. Am I missing something? The ones I got cost me less than 120 bucks each in stainless steel

          •  

            @Jackson: I believe DC motors are quieter. We have 4 of these Aldi ones in our bedrooms and they're awesome! Reviews are correct about the light though, it's quite bright but we use lamps anyway.

          •  

            @Jackson: Running costs are a lot lower. About 25% from memory.

            •  

              @tonydav: Interesting, if that's the case can we derive from it that DC motors are more efficient than AC? If true why would every electric car on earth invert the supply from the battery from DC to AC to drive an AC motor? To be honest I havent heard of a DC motor before, only AC ones (I am not an electonics professional) but if they dont exist I dont see how using a transformer and then converting to AC to drive a motor is more efficient?

        It’s $173.50 at Bunnings.

        Take the ALDI catalogue to Bunnings and get a further ten percent off.

        I have this fan in a couple of rooms. It’s good.

        •  

          nice find, i thought the comparable was the mercator DC grange which is usually $350 on sale. PS the grange also has a very bright light and has a stupid piezo screamer style chirp every time its turned on/off or speed changed….. perfect for a sleeping infants room :(

              @iShibby: Probably on new version
              ?

  •  

    Does anyone have any first hand feedback on the tent? Easy to assemble? Handle some wind / rain / elements etc?

    •  

      Forget about this tent handling any sort of rain. Bought a similar one from Ray's outdoors and when it started bucketing down, the water started coming in to the tent from the stitching of the "windows".

      Was horrible experience. Returned the tent as soon as we got back.

      •  

        Did you wet the tent before camping, all stiching need to be expanded before use.

        •  

          Yeah, did that too. Set it up in the front yard a couple of times to practice and kids hosed it. So I think I did do the prep work.

        • +1 vote

          Thats not true in my experience, its just a tent, you put a fly over it and you are done.

      •  

        Bought a similar one? Its not the same one.

            @DisabledUser77976: People commented because it was a stupid point. It's like me telling people not to buy cars because I've had trouble before with a Holden. My one experience doesn't really even give any meaningful information about Holdens, let alone cars in general.

            A simple "check if the tent can deal with rain before taking it out camping" would have been better!

            •  

              @callum9999: On the contrary, these types of goods are usually all made by one chinese factory and rebranded.

              Im sure you could this tent on alibaba.com

              •  

                @Shacktool: @Superannuation Not necessarily. I don't doubt for a second that there are many different factories in China producing similar looking tents with big differences in quality.

                @homersimpson As I said, stupid and pointless. Tacking on "people can make up their own mind" doesn't make it any less so!

            •  

              @callum9999: I bought Coleman Hampton 9 and commented because this looked quite similar. Whether the comment itself was stupid or not, people can make up their own mind.

      If it rains acid, you're pretty much (profanity).
      Definitely avoid if this is a concern.

      Says it has 2000mm PU coating. I think that means something

    •  

      Bought the 6(or8?) person version last year. Assembled once then took it back and bought a similar Coleman for not much more $. Just felt that the quality wasn’t very good.

      •  

        I assumed it was a rebranded version of the Coleman! What were the differences?

        Those instant up 4 and 6 person ones look just like the Coleman versions. This ten person one looks like rubbish and unsuited to Australian conditions. That fly looks like a waste of time.

    •  

      This tent has a 1/2 fly. You will need a tent with a complete fly to ensure water does not come in.

      Most fabric seeps water after a while. with a fly, water falls on it and rolls off. After sustain rain, water will seep through
      Thats why most tents are double wall. The first is the fly and the second wall is the tent where you would sleep in.

      When water starts seeping through the fly, they will still just roll off the inside of the fly. Thus it is important to pitch the tent properly so that the fly does not touch the inside wall.

      •  

        So glad I just read this, I'll stop getting excited and buy a coleman. Never seen a 1/2 fly before…what's the point?

      How do you mean? The bottom of the 3 pics on the left show how it is when erected then a fly is thrown over the top as shown in the main image. My Blackwolf is the same style.

    We bought the 6 person Aldi tent and went camping with it this weekend. Was a lot of rain and it was totally fine. So easy to set up and put away too - we've never camped before. Very happy with it. I can't comment how long it will last as its the first time we used it but for the price and ease of use its very good.

    Recently used a coal upright smoker a bit like this one, but could only just get it up to 110 deg C, and then had to add coal each hour, then temperature drops and has to come up again. Tough gig when you are smoking a large item that takes a long time. Anyone know how much different food will taste use gas instead of coal? Seems like it would be quite a lot easier

    • +1 vote

      110ºC is plenty for smoking. Keep practising…don't give up. Read through the BBQ forums for more tips.

      Try the minion method for your coals. Heat Beads are much easier to use than lump and will give a similar result.

      I can fit about 2 bags of Heat Beads in mine and get 8-10 hours. Top vent stays open with bottom vents only a few mm open to keep the burn slow.

      This is a gas smoker. I bought it a few years back, and it works OK for the price. It will get up to 200'C if you take out the water tray to crisp things up at the end of a smoking session.

  •  

    What’s the go with actually buying these sale items in store? Do you need to check availability before hand? I assume all stores don’t stock..
    Also would you need to get there first thing in the AM?

    Interested in the fan.. anyone know what it would cost to get an electrician to install?

  • +1 vote

    Gas smoker is awesome, I bought this same one a year ago & use it heaps. Pork butt & beef brisket from Costco are amazing after overnight smoking. Wood chunks instead of chips smoke for hours. The gas is pretty much set & forget. Just need to top off the water pan after 10 hours or so. You can make adjustments to the burner to adjust temp range, I have mine set as adjustable from around 90.- 150c.
    If I was to upgrade it would be electric PID controlled, never going back to wood or coal fired for 12+ hour cooks!

  •  

    On the smoker page on the top it says 28th October Saturday. But Saturday is actually 27th…. Is that a miss print?
