ma.
Anyone try the Big Boi car blower? I just got it and am thoroughly impressed
6 speeds 3 Attachments and blows 20 degrees warmer than outside temp. The temp is adjustable as well

I've used a 120 mph leaf blower for the last few years now.
Works like a champ. Takes only a couple minutes to blow dry my full size P/U.
'Cost a little over $100 as I recall.

Don’t blow the XPel off your GT you just got finished!

Which one did you get and is it cordless? I just bought a small lithium ion powered one for $130 that claims 150MPH but it was more like a hair dryer so I took it back.

It's a Toro "Super Blower". They're only made in 'power cord' form...at least that was the case when I bought mine.

(The label attached to the unit reads, "up to 215 mph"...but my guess is that would be possible only if the unit were operated in a 100 mph tailwind...OR one used compressed air to feed it. ;-) )

A 6 speed! Paddle shift? That's the most appliance speeds I've seen since a 15 speed Hamilton Beach blender.

This blows big time. $29.93 and one day delivery. Sadly, only a 2 speed Powerglide. Of which I only use 1 speed. Doubles as a leaf blower they say! Never tried that though.

Never touch your car with a drying towel again.

I use my Stihl backpack leaf blower. It actually works well as a leaf blower too.

Been using the Metro Master blasters for years. Work great and huge power. A bit pricey. Anything STIHL is great but I am partial--been representing them 3 years. My only worry with leaf blowers is accidentally hitting the surface.

I agree on the Metro Master blaster. Pricey but the thing is the real deal.

Also, the MetroVac has slightly heated air, which is nice, and it's filtered. I love mine!

Not exactly sure how the leaf blower is designed, but I believe it's just got a giant fan sucking air in and then blowing unfiltered air out. When you're blowing leaves, you don't care about picking up particulate matter and sandblasting it into your leaf pile. The car, however....
