A game changer for sure. What nozzle do you run on yours?

So, you paid (if bought new) between $200-250 depending on 2.5 or 5ah battery for a leaf blower vs $279 for an actual car dryer? I get it if you are saving money as the ones that buy a cheap electric. My first one was a Toro Power Jet F700 turbine leaf blower from Home Depot that was on sale for $49. But at that price range, the advantages of the car dryer are well worth the difference. And I can tell you that having that turbine blowing next to you, vs having the turbine on the floor or wall mounted makes a big difference on your sanity by the time you're done drying your car.

For me I just prefer being cordless. I absolutely hate dragging any cords or tubes around the car as no matter how careful I am I end up hitting the car with it one way or another. Plus it doubles as a leaf blower 😅

The heated feature would be nice for drying badges and stuff but not necessary for me. Other than that I think a leaf blower (especially the 765 I have) is much more powerful and can dry the car faster.

The other perspective is it's a leaf blower first, that also works well to dry off cars. I use mine to dry off car, blow dirt and debris out of the garage and off the porch, clear actual leaves, and to annoy the dog. So as much as a dedicated car dryer would be nice, a $200 leaf blower does a lot of things well enough.

I mean, I told her that Saturday, "I'm meeting up with someone to grab a new exhaust for my car."

Then when I was in the garage the next day, I said, "I'm putting that exhaust on my car..."

It's a bit of a surprised pikachu moment there...
