Just a question I have not seen addressed. Does the Hellcat have a 120v outlet or do i need to getan inverter. I am thinking of getting an electric blower or battery operated to blow the water off the car. Anyone have any experience with a Black and Decker 20V blower? 120 MPH

I'm pretty sure it is like any other model with a 12v cigarette outlet and will need a transformer converter to 120v.

I've never used the blower but man that's a great idea instead of wiping it down to dry part

Why not invest in a good, gasoline operated, backpack blower such as an Echo or Stihl? You'll get so much more use of the tool for other things besides blowing off your car which will make the purchase "justifiable"!

The biggest and in my opinion, most important difference between an electric and gas powered leaf blower is there is zero chance of any oil residue coming out of the electric blower and ending up on the paint. I've seen it happen and the most anal detailers will probably use an electric leaf blower. It's what I have. :)

I'm no electrician but all the 110 outlets I've had in several vehicles couldn't handle the load of charging much more than a lap top. I think a blower would draw too many amps.

I agree, that is why I thought battery power or if the car was equipped with a built in inverter with a 120v outlet. I could keep an electric one in the trunk(hopefully the monkey wouldn't play with it)

I actually am a master electrician and you are right A 1000 watt inverter will easily handle most cordless tool chargers. An electric leaf blower may be an issue depending on the motor size
. I don't need as much power as a gas blower either.

no 120v inverters pretty much suck, I have them on the pontoon boat and they are not very good.
don't they make a 12v blower???? you could run a small portable inverter to charge a tablet or lap top if needed thats about it.
I use my gas power leaf blower to blow water out of the wheels and on my bikes it works great but it is too large to be portable.

It goes back to my original question as I found a 20v Black and Decker with a removable battery pack, just wondered if anyone had tried one. But, and it's a big butt, actually a huge ASS, my build got bumped another 2 weeks to the week of 3/30. No sense buying anything else for that damn car

check out some of the camping or RV isles at Walmart, they may have something smaller
