I just use my electric leaf blower. Works well at 90% less than cost of a Master Blaster.

Awesome, works great and easy on the arms as your only holding a light 10' hose, not a heavy leaf blower used by some. Actually blows out the mirrors and the tail lights so you have no dripping later. If I remember correctly, it blast a 750 mph wind that is far above a leaf blower. It also has various soft tips so if you accidentally make contact with the cars surface, no scratches.

I have one and like it, as mentioned it gets in all the nooks and crannies with hot air, works well on wheels too.

I highly recommend them! I have the Master Blaster for my cars and I have a smaller version for my motorcycles.

I have one use it primarily for the mirrors, headlights, grill and tail lights. I give the rest of the car a once over and then move on to a towel to finish the job. Typically I only need a single towel to do the rest.

for the mirrors and the tail lights there is no better solution.

I have one, I used to use the Leaf Blower method and realize now how difficult it was to use it over the Master Blaster. Also with the leaf blower you have gas and oil smoke / residue blowing around with it, no thanks, never again. Master Blaster gets

Mine works great!

After blowing my Corvette off, a final wipe with a microfiber towel and I'm done..........

Buy it!

That is one of the main reasons I would never pick one up. I am sure they work great but for value, $30 electric leaf blower + microfiber cloth and I can dry my car in about 10 minutes. But if a leaf blower is not your thing and you don't want to spend over $300, give this a look.

I use a 240 mph Toro. It does an outstanding job and I think I paid around $65 for it.

Black and Decker leaf blower for me. It blows the same air as your master blaster for a fraction of the cost.

I use one. I Mounted next to the overhead door on the wall and have an additional 2 lengths of hoses coupled together to reach well outside the garage. Works excellent for drying and reducing the fine towel marks that are inevitable. I also use it on the low setting to blow out the door jamb and hing areas after a wash as well as the interior when the roof has been off and the interior gets a little dusty. More controllable than a leaf blower. I paid around 300.00 a year and a half ago and would do it again if this one broke or got stolen.

By the way who is that in your avatar Gary? Pretty face for sure!

Tad expensive, but, in my opinion well worth it. As already said, its lighter than a leaf blower, gas or electric and it does blow hot air. The nozzel is soft, so if you touch the car by accident, it will not scratch or do any damage.

Maybe you can find someone in your area that has one to give you a demo.

Gas leaf blower. No cords to mess with and hurricane force that dries off a car in less than a few minutes.
