Ever held a K55 up next to a 153? I think the K55 indeed is smaller in diameter - but keep in mind that in a K55 the rotor is inside the stator instead of outside, and the windings are thicker (28mm is twice as thick as the usual 14mm or so of a 153.) The stats may be legit, if they measured it strictly on the size of the visible part of the motor. That's not to say that the K55 isn't four or five times as strong
The Subway fans, I've seen before, I cant remember who makes them. It'll come to me, but it'll probably come to someone else first.
The WalMart fan is a Westinghouse. I think some other companies are relabeling those exact same industrials, so someone else might have a different brand for it. Jean, what are those labeled as in your neck of the woods?
The Toys-R-Us fans are Dayton/Marleys. Most Toys-R-Us-es have them.

The fans in the Subway are Canarm NOT Banvil. This one is the 52'' version witch is more rare to see. The 42'' version is very popular tough. Its very hard to not confuse the Nadair model and the Canarm model. The Canarm is still made today in both 42'' and 52'' only in white, the bottom plate is smaller and switch housing is thinner. The Nadair one(like my grand parents have) was even made in the early 90s, have a bigger detachable switch housing, wider bottom plate, was probably also available in glossy black but I don't know if the made a 52'' version. I know they also made a 4 blades version. Both Nadair and Canarm models use two pull chains: speeds and reverse. Something very common on Canadian ceiling fans. Don't know why though.
So Jeremy you wanted to know what looks exactly my Nadair grands parents ceiling fan. Well it looks a lot like the one in the pic of Ben but in the 90s White Nadair 42'' 5 blades bigger switch housing version like I describe.
The Industrial above the photo center looks like a Westinghouse but because of the curved blades its not one. There a Best Buy Store near me that have many of those. They also very popular overseas. Its probably a Banvil Envirofan Bronze Line. banvil2000.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_71&products_id=67
My local Toys 'R Us store have some Banvils Envirofan Gold Line I think or something similar to Evergo. At least I know they are: 56'' ,white ,3 curved blades, generic bell canopy.
