I use this blower to dry cars after washing them. It helps get all the dirt and water out from those hard to reach places. Very Powerful for such a little machine


Metro Vac Air Force Blaster Side Kick


Fast delivery time and a great product.

Smooth as silk

It’s light, it’s quick and it beats the hell out of my leaf blower...

Great entry level offering

While this could be a little more powerful it gets the job done. Have only used it on my car treated with a ceramic coating, so it already beads and rolls easily. Need to try it on my other vehicles without coatings. Takes a little longer than towel drying but you don't have to go over the vehicle with a detail spray afterwards to deal with streaks and you don't risk swirls.
