Battery Operated Blower for Drying Cars

My gas blower just had the fuel line crack allowing some air in and it seized the piston. so I am in the market for a new blower and this video came in my feed.



Makes me think that a battery operated blower would be awesome for drying cars inside the garage and for drying the floor.

Anyone have one or have experience?

I use the WORX 20V Max and it works great for drying my car and the charge last a long time. I picked it up at Wally World.

I've got one. It works great and keeps a good charge. You will still need to do some drying, but it will remove all the water from the tight spots. These have been marked down at Home Depot....I believe they are $149. They had them on sale a month ago for $99.

i've got the 18v black and decker and a 20v toro. use them to blow the dust around occasionally and the water beads. plenty of air flow and run time on a charge is 15-20 minutes. the 18v dies slowly and the 20v just says 'i quit'

We just picked up the 20v Black and Decker blower, brought it as a combo kit with a trimmer $90.00. I think its going to be just as good as using the air compressor.
