This product really blows

I use this little blower to clean industrial wireless equipment, and it does an industrial job. When I'm done cleaning my filters I am able to blow out leaves and small debris off the floor.

More Air Output Than You Can Handle

The primary reason I purchased this item was to clear dust from film prior to darkroom printing or computer scanning thus saving on the high cost of canned air. The unit has a push button on/off switch. The volume of air generated is greater than needed for clearing film, and is more suitable for cleaning computer keyboards and other similar high volume air required tasks. If the unit had a blower motor speed control it would serve a greater variety of photo related tasks. It is also rather l...

The primary reason I purchased this item was to clear dust from film prior to darkroom printing or computer scanning thus saving on the high cost of canned air. The unit has a push button on/off switch. The volume of air generated is greater than needed for clearing film, and is more suitable for cleaning computer keyboards and other similar high volume air required tasks. If the unit had a blower motor speed control it would serve a greater variety of photo related tasks. It is also rather large and bulky for hand held use. I hope to modify it with an in-line speed control switch.

WOW - IS THIS THING LOUD OR WHAT?

By

from Los Angeles, CA

This product does what it says - it blasts dust off of surfaces with amazing efficiency. It is easy to use, and not very heavy. The big downfall is that it is tremendously loud. Don't plan to use this in an office environment as it is TOO LOUD. Other that that, it's a great product and is well priced.

A better way to protect our enviroment.

By

from New York City  -  Professional

It gets rid of dust balls and dust from the computers and laptops. Especially underneath the keyboards. I am very happy with the new design from the older units. It is easier to use. It should include more different accessories to get into hard to reach areas.

Air Cleaner Replaces Air Spray Cans

By

from Nashville, TN  -  Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

This handy little air cleaner replaces all those aerosol driven cans that get colder in your hand the longer you use them. Plug it in, turn it on and presto a steady stream of warm air. Plenty of nozzles to direct the air exactly where you want it. One of the best additions to my computer and photography arsenal!

High power

By

from Laurel, FL  -  Casual Do-It-Yourselfer

Plenty of powerful airflow to remove dust where ever it is needed. The attachments must be firmly attached or the pressure will launch them like a rocket.

Powerful Air Stream

By

from Chicago  -  Professional

I am one of the old traditional photographers who still shoots film including large format. The blower although bulky to use does an excellent job of getting the dust out of sheet film holders before loading. It is much more effective than canned air at a fraction of the cost.

Beats the heck out of canned air.

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Professional

I could easily be talked into buying an additional unit if it were cordless (rechargeable battery type) and the sound level cut by about 50%.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  does this filter out moisture?
ROBERT C  No, it does not filter moisture. It is basically a high velocity blower with a thick open cell foam disk as a dust filter. The intake is on the bottom, so care must be used to not place it down when running, or it will suck up everything on the surface.
Shopper  Hi I'm buying this to use overseas & I a wanted to know what electric hz it has?
DONALD P  It is 120 volts, 60hz, 4.0 amps. Hope this helps you out.
THOMAS J  Does it have suction power also?
SEMYON S  The only place on the unit where there is suction is on the bottom where air is drawn in to be forced out of the blower. There is a coarse foam filter that is obviously not designed to be a vacuum filter. There is also no attachment to trap sucked up dirt in a container for disposal. The unit is just not designed to be a vacuum cleaner. The blower is quite strong, considerably too strong for electronic components. It can blow the keys off the keyboard. I use mine mainly for blowing up yard debris in small areas.
