Hi. Anyone carry around a compact cordless rechargeable blower for blowing off camper roof, campsite pad, etc.? Which one, do you like it, where did you get it? We are shopping for one that we could also use at our small home blowing off deck, carport, a few leaves. THX

I use
https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-18-Volt-Cordless-105-MPH-Jobsite-Handheld-Blower-Tool-Only-R8604301B/301351360
and have been very happy with it. I use it all the time around the house and take it with me camping.

If you have any battery powered tools get a blower that uses the same batteries.

We have a corded one. I think it was $20. Don't recall the brand. Works fine. I have enough trouble keeping the cordless drill charged, so it's ready when I want to use it.

Fun little trick if you want to get the campfire to full heat quickly (say you want to cook on the the fire and you need coals)...once the wood has solidly caught fire (too soon, you can blow out the fire), give it a little blower and it's like blast furnace getting it going quick.

I don't carry one camping, but I use the Ryobi 40V one at the house and it works very well. It is more powerful than the corded one I had before. I got it because I already had the 40V push mower and they use the same battery. Might be bigger than what you want to carry camping though.

I have a Black+Decker that I picked up at Amazon Warehouse deals pretty cheap and I also have a few other Black+ Decker 20Volt tools that I can use with this Battery Pack.Always look at the warehouse first,got a great deal on a Weber Q.

I have 2 of them, both Dewalt.
One is a smaller unit, the other the big "bazooka" as I call it. They refer to them as jobsite blowers.

My small one here:
My "bazooka" here:

I use the small one for blowing off the top of the slide before pulling it in, and to clear the under the awning area of leaves and debris. It works awesome!

You can buy these as tool only, and if you already have a brand of cordless tools, get one of the same brand. I bought Dewalt because I already have a fleet of their tools and I can use the same batteries.

My big bazooka works really well to clear powder snow. A very fast and easy way to clear sidewalks.

I use my small one on campfires too, like Valhalla said. Works great!!

I have an EGO blower. I wouldn't recommend it for what you want one for but it does move the leaves in my yard. very powerful! I'm looking to get a small corded blower for my RV roof and slide outs. Lighter is better for me in this situation.

I asked him to do one thing and he didn't do any of them.
