    Car air dryer / leaf blower

    Hello again!

    I just got a nice pressure washer last week and made the car wash process go so much faster and easier. But now I think I'm in the market for an Air Dryer/leaf blower to reduce the chance of swirls while drying the car.

    I was seeing this on Amazon:

    Toro 51585 Power Sweep Electric Leaf Blower, 7 Amp 2-Speed
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0012QLVRM...ing=UTF8&psc=1

    Do you guys have any good recommendations?

    I went down to Home Depot and got this one.

    It's good, and blows like no ones business.... The wand is a little long though. I rarely use it for drying the car, because I'm freaked out by accidentally hitting the car with it while drying it.

    After I get my RS, and have it nano coated, I may start using it again.

    Leaf blowers are definitely the best for drying.

    Use mine all the time!

    I already had that planned!!!!!! I'm looking for a leaf blower, but I want one with a lithium battery. I dont want gas powered or a long extenstion cord following me around.

    Unfortunately the battery powered ones do not have the same CFM rating as the electric or gas. I use an electric with a long cord.
