I had an airforce dryer when I had my harley. Thinking about a leaf blower electric 2500w. If I use it for the garden will it still be alright for drying the bike off?

I bought a leaf blower from Argos for £20, just looked and they don't sell that model any more. I wouldn't be without it now, great buy.

Leaf blower is good for blowing the dirt out of my carport after a west Texas dust storm. And I can still use it on my bike.  :cmate:

If you use a leaf blower/garden vac for vacuuming before using it as a blower to dry your bike, Does it throw shit and dust on the bike? 

ps. how do you spell vacuuming correctly?

Vacuuming is spelt correctly Sim. You are asking the same question as me re gardening and then bike drying.

They sell HD branded bike dryers for £150. They are made by metro. I bought a pet dryer by metro same design and specs for £45 lol.... I think a leaf blower is better.

My one was a cheapo one for £20, not a fancy, all singing, all dancing one. It does not have a suck, only a blow. I would be very dubious about using a blow shortly after the suck had been used, especially if it could collect as well. Well only if the collection bag was removable. On my blow only cheapo model I have even cut a small & very thin piece of foam that is used as a filter on the air intake. Maybe that was a bit of overkill but at least I know its sucktion will never grab & blow any freshly killed bugs at the bike while doing it. Again, I think maybe that was over the top.

As the hurricane said to the monkey in the coconut tree, 'hang on to your nuts, this is no ordinary blow job!'
