    Also (unless it's like +100F) by the time you are about to dry the car, the area surrounding the car should still be relatively wet. Which reduces the chance of debris hitting your car.

    EGO 110 MPH 530 CFM Variable-Speed Turbo 56-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Electric Blower-LB5302 - The Home Depot

    530 Mother Effing CFM



    Thing is awesome but be careful with Turbo mode on the car.

    Pretty much only used it in Turbo mode but this baby cleaned out the side of my driveway and side of house.

    Out front, it removed dried leaves well while leaving small rocks in place. Regulate power with distance and use eye protection!

    Easily removed spider webs from the fence.

    Felt like I was holding a wind bazooka

    Don't forget a couple of good waffle weave towels for the left over water, though some of you guys might not have any paint left so it may not matter.

    I got a toro electric corded for $70. Has like 450 cfm and 250 mph. It blows hard.

    Don't use gas blowers. It will blow gas fumes all over your paint.

    Did end up going with the EGO and recorded a small clip of how easily the water rolls off the paint. Keep in mind though... I did treat my paint with Opti-Coat pro


    Apologies for the crappy vertical video and also recommend to adjust (lower) your volume since the blower is right next to my phone.

    And that wasn't even in TURBO MODE! Grats on the purchase - this thing is a BEAST!

    Yeah... turbo mode is crazy. Kicks back my arm as soon as I press the button, made it hard to try and record haha.
    And thanks for the recommendation :P
