[Home Depot] $118 - RYOBI 155 MPH 300 CFM 40V Cordless Leaf Blower - In Store Only? YMMV

I went into Home Depot today and they had a 25% off seasonal tool table. I picked up this leaf blower, and the customer service rep scanned it, and it came up to $118. See image.

You may not be able to get it for the additional 25% off, but I'm assuming you could show this image to HD and they'll price match it?

i see ryobi, i upvote

very good find if you already in the 40V ryobi line up, $88.5 seems great deal

i got the $399 18V mower, trimmer, blower and it works well, but never try the 40V blower so i cannot say the difference

How well would this one work for drying a car?

you should not use leaf blowers dry a car. they do not have a filter and will damage your paint with fin particles of sand and debris.

This blower is ok for light use. I have it, along with the trimmer at the cottage. I use it for clearing the deck and patio from light debris, cleaning out the eaves and getting grass off the mower. Basically anything a hard surface. On grass, it throws leaves 3-4' forward. One battery charge lasts around 30 minutes of continuous use.
I use a Stihl backpack blower for heavy leaf clean-up. At home, I have a Hitachi gas blower. This trimmer/blower combo is perfect to supplement gas blowers, or if you have a small lot which does not get alot of leaves.

hmmm

I am pretty sure he wasn't talking about putting his leaf blower on the ground to dry his car...
There's no sand in the air AFAIK, unless on a very windy day maybe.

ps. Have you ever been on the highway with your car?

People that inquire about using a leaf blower to dry their car are generally very particular in about how they want to wash/dry/detail their car. They don't want any potential for swirls, scratches, etc. They don't want to use any kind of cloth (no matter what material or stitching or lack of) to dry the car. They use multiple buckets, multiple grit guards, perhaps even only use 1 cloth 1 time....claybar, cut, polish.. OMG.. the time involved...

I once tried to be like that... but I can't... I simply don't care enough.. lol

However, for those type of people, it's a good point some may have not thought about...

Seems like a good point about the air being unfiltered but I don't think I've come across this being an issue. Obviously, wouldn't be using the blower in a dusty environment if drying a car. Mostly to get water sheeting off coated surfaces and out of nooks/crannies.

Was wondering if the force is strong enough and if the nozzle shape is conducive to air focused the right way.

I should have added that the biggest worry would be to blow dust and sand from the ground and onto the car. Then, if you follow up the blower with a drying towel or glove, you would potentially scratch the surface.

My Hitachi has blower came with a nozzle which concentrates the air. The Ryobi one did not, but I bought it second hand.
