  • Cheap car dryer/blower

    Hey all,

    Just bought one of these for those small areas a bigger blower canít get into. Sure itís not got a HUGE wattage or maximum power but it should do the trick. Use the code PONCHO to save $9.20 so should be $39.80 which is pretty darn good for a cheap blower. Offer for 20% off ends 25 October. Plus it was posted within 20mins of buying which is always good for those impulse buys for the garage.

    Thanks for the heads up mate!

    I've always been keen to hear how these go.

    A few of the guys here have bought something similar from Kmart and Big W a couple of years back but I never managed to find one

      My wife picked one of these up for $100 yesterday, handy if you already have tools with the batteries. She hasn't given it to me to play with yet though

        I have the same blower with the Makita badge on it. Really good for around seals and in the honey comb details. Noisy as hell though lol

            Yeah the batteries are expensive but honestly it's not the tool makers fault with that one. They all use 18650 lithium ion cells usually around the 8-14 cells per battery with an average street price of $10 a cell i don't know if they even make much money on them. Add into that the case which are usually polypropylene with 30% glass re-enforced (really really strong and heat resistant but expensive moulding and shorter mould lifespan) and the PCB in there to monitor temps of each cell and current draw/voltage levels, cycles of cells etc etc.
