    I’ve got the Big Boi Blowr Pro and like it a lot. Much better hose than the Master Blaster. Night and day difference compared to a leaf blower.

    I used the small Makita blower fitted with the 5.0Ah battery for a while, it worked decently well at getting most of a car dry before going over with a towel and drying aid.



    I then started using a Stihl BGA56, the lack of a focused nozzle meant it was ok but nothing more. I do occasionally use this when I'm pressed for time.



    I upped the ante with a Big Boi mid last year.





    As mentioned above, the difference in a purpose built machine is quite big. The smaller nozzle compared to a leaf blower just makes it more efficient and moving water from the car.

    I use a 60v Green Works blower and its super powerful and will dry vehicles with ease. IMO leaf blowers are far more effective than the tiny expensive blowers for detailing as they move more cubic feet of air. When done, I usually grab my air compressor blower to get the grill work and small ares clear.

    Some master blasters heat the air. Ceramic coating and a master blaster. Makes towel free efficient drying easy.

    Have done air compressor, hand held & backpack leaf blowers but for convenience and ease of operation nothing beats a dedicated unit w a long hose & rubber-tipped nozzle.

    Wife has a '19 Corvette with water-holding vents in middle of hood & top of rear quarter panels...hose/nozzle combo is great for getting to those places, other methods were cumbersome.

    Definately not a necessity to have dedicated unit but a nice luxury.

    I believe a must have if you baby your car, and do a little back yard detailing. But must be mounted on wall out of the way with long extension hose. Always plugged in and ready to go. If you have to drag it out and plug it in. It could be a hassle.

    I would use an ego cordless blower anyday. The master blaster is 400cfm out of a tiny nozzle, where my ego blower is 650cfm out of an opening four times the size.

    I have no interest in going back to a cord and hose with a unit that moves less air yet costs twice as much.

    My Greenworks 80 volt cordless is outstanding. Real power, enough to completely dry my car on a full charge, including the wheels and tires.

    I won’t go back to a corded blower.
