Cordless Leaf Blowers

I just purchased my Black Wide Body Challenger Hellcat a couple weeks ago and I just love it. It’s awesome. Since it’s black I’m really taking Good care of the paint.
I always wash my nice cars at a touch less car wash using their hand held pressure washer. I was just wondering if purchasing a cordless leaf blower would be a good idea to dry it?
And in between washes I keep it clean. I use quick detailer spray and the best quality microfiber towels and cloths. I heard some people say leaf blowers just push the water around. But the master blaster blows warm air.

I use the dewalt cordless blower. Works well for me. My bro has the heated one but it’s really low power compared to mine. I prefer the leaf blower.

Cheaper if you have the batteries.

I’d go with the highest CFM blower you can get for your budget. For drying a car that’s what you want large volume of air to push all the water off the car.

Another vote here for the master blaster. Yeah it's expensive, but after seeing how they use it at the detail shop it was a no brainer.
From the specs of that thing I’d agree it’s probably better than a leaf blower. But for $200 or less the blower is a good option though. Really helps to dry the car.

leaf blowers work better IMO. Especially the big boys. My bro has a master blaster it doesn’t have near the CFM as a big blower.

I personally feel the heated air is a gimmick. Your not trying to dry the water on the car your trying to blow it off all surfaces and crevices. Large volume of air will do that the best.

I had that Happen to me with a power washer nozzle. Cost me PDR and new PPF on the panel.
