I know I have seen Adam from adams polishes use it in a video I am sure it works ok. I am going to replace my craftsman blower with either a metro vac and blow to get the use of the vacuum or a Chemical Guys blower.

I use my Echo backpack leaf blower now but it would be kind of nice to be able to use this late at night and inside of my garage without issues. I'm just worried about how well it works.

I used to use my gas power stil back pack blower but the oil and gas mix when burned would leave a residue on my paint, so I switched to using a craftsman electric blower but it works only ok since its an old one. This is also why I need to upgrade as well.

I see a lot of people complain about that but I guess I've been lucky because I don't ever have any sort of residue.

I think I am going to get the Chemical guys blower since its a bit smaller than the regular electric blowers.

What makes those any better than using one of these?

Homelite 150 mph 120 CFM Electric Blower/Sweeper - UT42100 at The Home Depot

I'm genuinely curious why these "designer" blowers are better instead of using a standard 150mph plus leaf blower?
Some work better than the regular electric blowers by shooting out more air and some will even heat up the air. But to be honest with you I'm just tired using my old craftsman one with the long ass nose. I rather have something a little smaller that I can get closer the the car with and works better than what I have now.

Definitely understandable. :)

That's why I just posted that Toro. ;)

On a side note, 150 mph isn't enough in my opinion.

Well you could always cut the nozzle down. I was planning on doing so if I bought the Toro that I just posted.

What speed do you think is best? I have this terrible image of using a 200mph blower to dry my car and have my hood scoop or side scoops go flying. :(

I bought a battery powered Ryobi today to try out because it was light. It has a speed of 120 mph, it doesn't list how much air it moves though. It didn't work so I'll be returning it.

There's no reason why a 200+ mph blower would cause body parts to fly off. Otherwise they would be flying off as you went down the highway.

Don't be a girly man.

Which one? The 4 hp one?? How was it? Did it remove water quickly?

As long as it's not late at night it's no different than someone doing their landscaping.
