Not nearly powerful enough.
Purchase the blower with the most power that you can afford.
The K9 III is fantastic and was worth every penny.

The shop vac is not very powerful as a blower. Because the Metro concentrates the air flow, it works much better as a doggie dryer than the shop vac.

Freestep, what are the two different nozzles used for? Right now I only have the cone one attached.

The flat nozzle is for dogs with long, silky hair that has a tendency to tangle at the ends. To be honest, I rarely use the flat nozzle. I find that the cone works best for 99.8% of what I do.

I think the difference is a couple hundred bucks I'm sure the metro driers are much more efficient but the price is holding me back since I only have one dog. I have more time than money.
