    Not sure what you might use that for. Heat Gun Blow dryer. Just curious.

    Leaf blower! I've used one for years on bikes to dry out handlebar controls, cooling fins, and other areas you dont want water collecting after rain or washing.
    Way more volume than that little sucker in the picture, and even better if you already have one.

    I have a Worx 200mph leaf blower that works great on cars after washing, it has more MPH than my race car. I'll have to run it at the track sometime.

    We bought 2 of these on clearance at Wally's 10? years ago. Paid under $20 each.
    Supposed to be for drying motorcycles. ATV, etc.
    They are exactly the same as dog groomer dryers. Blows warm air.
    We sold one to a dog groomer and we use ours to dry/blow out our dogs after baths.

    Probably nice to have warm air, but I use a leaf blower.

    I just use the shop vac, suck the water out without blowing it all over.

    I didn t think of a leaf blower. Thats a really good idea. The Eastwood heat air dryers are 400 ish and that’s crazy. I want to cut down on scratching

    I bought a Metrovac Master Blaster 5 or 6 years ago, but haven't really been all that impressed. It is good for getting water out tight places. It just doesn't seem to dry of surfaces all that quick. A cheaper leaf blower seems worth trying.
