Does anybody use this 'Air-Force Blaster'

http://www.5starshine.com/info-air-f...car-dryer.html

Do you or would you use it? Don't see what harm it can do, especially the fact it's touchless, if you don't leave it hitting the same spot for too long it should be fine right?

saw it at SEMA this year, Its on the buy list! I think it will be awesome investment because my shop vac doesnt really blow out cracks and crevices all that well, not to mention not having to towel dry a jet black bmw after a full correction to remove all the polish dust potentially inducing light marring!!!!

I've been using leaf blower for years and it works just as good if not better. It is also much more cost effective.

This looks great. Which size are you considering buying? I think I'm going to put it on my Christmas list!!

Well that could work but the fact is we would never require a leaf blower in the part of Calgary that I live in..

Definitely going with the 'Master Blaster' might be more expensive but hey if we're buying it might as well go for the best one in the first place..

I use the Master Blaster (twice the power) all the time and it works great. I barely have to wipe any areas once I blow off the water. It's very well built and should last a long time.

Where did you guys order yours from? I'm buying one this week and it looks like Amazon has the best prices? Also, can you use it to blow dust off your car without scratching the paint?

Thanks

Yeah, and you look crazy out in the driveway attacking your car with a leaf blower.

I bought into the leaf blower idea for about 2 washes and then went back to the towels. I'm probably going to order a master blaster give that a try because it should be less noisy than the leaf blower and will be easier to maneuver.

What kind of filter does this thing have? The only thing that worries me is if there is dust/sand in the air...could pick that up and hit your paint with it no?

Guess it isn't a big deal as long as you aren't working in a bad environment.

No video, but I just finished using this and WOW, it is awesome. Almost zero drying by towel now. This thing is one of my newest friends.

When the video said "No more rusty rotors." I was SOLD!!
