The Air Force Master Blaster is simply amazing. I have long used a blow gun with my air compressor to do many cleaning duties, and between using a vacuum cleaner and the blow gun you could really get things clean. Then there are gas powered leaf blowers that we've seen used to blow the water off of cars and motorcycles. So when I first saw this 8 HP Master Blaster I instantly knew what it was capable of, but didn't know it even existed!
While it is sold to blow dry cars and motorcycles, it can be used for so many more things. It does well as a blower for the driveway or garage, either carry it or get a shoulder strap. I use it after mowing the lawn to blow the clippings off of the mower deck, keeps the mower clean and looking new. Of course we use it to blow dry several motorcycles and cars, and for that it is excellent. Noise level isn't as bad as I thought it might be, so it is acceptable to me. But once you start to grasp what all it can do, it becomes even more valuable. I would suggest getting the 10 foot extension hose, nice to have, and for those complaining about the hose coming off of the blower, they likely have trouble with a screwdriver as that is a pretty basic concept of fitting the hose onto the blower as far as it will go and tightening, but not over tightening the clamp. To complain about that is to admit an inability to deal with many things mechanical......
All in all a good piece of equipment, versatile beyond what the manufacturer might realize. Think "big blow dryer" or "big blower" and you can use the air force to make many jobs easier. Drying animals, no problem. Drying or cleaning vehicles, easy. Moving dust and dirt, simple. Just remember eye protection, like safety glasses.
