I have been using air to dry my cars and motorcycles for years, I happen to be in the vacuum cleaner business and I built one similar to this. This Metro Air Force blower is superior, it gets the water off with no effort at all. My car has vinyl racing stripes on it and if I towel dry them the finish gets minute scratches in the vinyl and they have to be waxed out, so if I used high pressure air, I don't have to touch the stripe and I get no scratches on them. After I blow off my car, I use a small microfiber cloth to get any remaining water. The price on Amazon was less than what I would pay from Metropolitan Vacuum and I am in the business. My only negitave comment would be it needs larger stabilization legs on it so it dosen't roll over, no big deal, I am either going to mount it in a plastic tool box or put wheels on the bottom from a larger Metro vacuum.

I bought my dryer six months ago. Washing my bike is no longer a dreaded chore. This dryer is fast and works very well. I spend about 8 to 10 minutes drying my heavyweight crusier. (And that's taking my time.) I bought the 4 hp model and can't see a need for the 8 hp model, this one works just fine. I use the top down and front to back method. No water spots, none! The warm air that it produces makes sure of that. Anyone who says that it doesn't save time needs to learn how to use it, or just take an hour and dry it by hand. This dryer is highly recommended.

After reading the various reviews, mostly for motorcycle, I went with the purchase as a primary use to dry off my own CARS. I figured I already have the water de-ionizer system, the foammasterII, this is what I needed to complete the package. WOW. I was totally shocked at how much air this unit puts out. It is outstanding for automobiles. The overall construction is excellent, the hose and attachments are excellent as-well. (Very impressive and quiet). The hose is more than long enough to work with, and the standard attachment is of a soft rubber that will not mar your finish if you accidentally touched it. It clearly was WELL WORTH THE $$$$. My only complaint, if there was one, is that the feet should be wider so it does not roll over. (I just place it on my creeper-seat with some velcro straps on the feet and let it follow me around). LONG STORY SHORT.............FOR CARS...........AMAZING !!!

I used it the first time on 5/1/11 after I first dried my car with a microfleece towel. Then I used the Air Force Blaster Dryer and more water than I have ever seen blew out of crevices in the seams and light bezels. No water spots at all! The only recommendation I would make as a previous poster submitted is to fashion a shoulder sling to carry the blaster unit around the car. A modification by the manufacturer would be a plus.

I got tired of lugging my leaf blower around while drying my car so I decided to try this product.
It performs very well. it is a bit weighty but i purchased 2 belts and slid them through the handle and made a sling to hang on my back...problem solved. Noise level is slightly lower than my leaf blower which I am sure the neighbors appreciate.
Made in USA...try finding that now days. Buying through Amazon is also a great experience.

Prime rocks - got this blower super fast. I bought it to replace a leaf blower since I just purchased a new car and figured I might as well do things the right way. I like that it isn't as loud as a leaf blower but I also don't think it has as much force when comparing it to my cheapy leaf blower. I did debate sending this back because of that. Using something like this on new tires and rims is one of the best ways to dry them, I would love to have the bigger unit but I couldn't justify the cost. This would be perfect for a motorcycle I'm assuming. I use this on a 4 door Golf and it's perfectly fine. Air comes out is warm - the name could be confusing because some of the models can actually be used as a vacuum too (this unit only blows air).

I will update this review once I get to try again on a car that has been properly waxed (I'm sure it will knock the water right off)

UPDATE - Works better on a properly waxed car. Still not 100% if I made the right purchase, I have named it the "dead cockroach" because it spends 90% of its time on its back with it's legs in the air. It is pretty friggin annoying that it tips over SO EASY.

I couldn't decide between this model and the 8 HP model. I didn't want to get the 4 HP model and then be disappointed with it's performance. I am anything but disappointed...the blower has all the power I need. I use it with the accessory nozzles for blowing the dust out of computers as opposed to those cans of compressed gas - it works great for this purpose.

I absolutely love this appliance. It says it blasts air....YES it does...I can dry my motorcycle in less than half the time and know that it is dry.
I also use it on the cars and anything else that I wash. Everyone wants to borrow it. I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase and Amazon. com made the whole process even better.
