    Milwaukee needs to RE-VAMP the compact blower.
    The yard leaf blower is great, but when you need a high pressure little blower , nothing beats it.
    being a mini-electric-turbo style compressor, it works very well for tasks Milwaukee hasn’t even considered.
    i use mine with 8 additional extensions , to blow out my gutters and stuff off the roof.
    i also use its high pressure to dry my motorcycle/cars after a wash, as it gets water out of all the nooks and crannies.
    with extensions, this also works perfect to clean out out home HVAC ducts/dryer vents. ( again, its a compressor style )
    if Milwaukee doesn’t upgrade this soon, i may have a side project on my hands.
