High velocity blower

Hello! Can anyone recommend a decent high velocity blower for my dog that does not cost $500?!

Can't recommend but I've been checking out the metrovac air force commander, variable speed. I don't want to spend $500 either and amazon has the metrovac for $188. It seems to get good reviews and lasts forever.

I think this is the one I have and it works great. I would recommend it.

Metro air force commander. I have the two speed 4hp but there is another one that is even stronger but pulls more power. The link is to the commander - I use it on 4hp all the time. This thing is great around the house, too. Use it to clean my dryer vent and window blinds, blow cobwebs out of corners etc.

They are made in USA and have for years. You can buy replacement filters (but the foam filter comes out for easy washing) and motor brushes. They are built to last. They do a great job.

There is another one same company "air force master blaster" but it draws 18 amps so if you have much else on a standard 20 amp home circuit you will be tripping breakers.

You can use the search feature on this site for metro and find all kinds of posts.

I have a 4 hp Metro Airforce Blaster that I got on Amazon for around $120. It was originally selling for $166, I saved it to my Amazon shopping list to buy later, and then it went on sale so I bought it immediately! Amazon now has it for over $100 more than I paid for mine.

I'm happy I'm not the only one that has used it for other things. I have blown leaves off the patio with it.

I usually give myself a good blow off after I do the dogs. This is something you want to use outside. Hair and dirt goes EVERYWHERE.

Sounds good. I have never used a blower to get rid of undercoat - I always just combed and used an equine shedding blade. It really wasn't too too effective!
