Excellent Compact High Velocity Air Dryer
March 2, 2021
This very compact, easy to handle unit has a lot of air velocity to dry the nooks/crannies of those areas of the vehicle which are not accessible by hand. Excellent versatility for exterior lights, side view mirrors, wheels. brakes etc. Also, the rubber nozzle is a very nice feature in the event you accidentally touch the car with the unit.
Solidly built. No bullish*t

This is one great product I would highly recommend. Solidly built and no bullish*t. I could imagine it would outlast most of my tools in my garage. High wind speed. They beauty is the filter built in so you don't have to worry about sand blasting your car with debris.

some of the best right now, ease of use, small, good power.
ProsEasy to use
Surprised by the power

Was initially disappointed at how small it was, because I assumed this blower would be weak. I was wrong, this thing blows, in a good way. I usually use this to dry my car and it gets all the trapped water out easily. The small size is also great for storage. It's literally the size of a water jug.
This Sidekick is great!

Dont let the smaller size fool you
July 8, 2016
I use this on my sedan and it works great, at first I was expecting a small bit of air due to the size, however dont judge a book by it's cover. This product rocks wonder where I was all my life without this product. I can use it dry the whole car or even reach to the cracks it works great. Im happy I went with this product instead of the the bigger one.
ProsDrys well, extremely powerful for such a compact machine, the covers are plastic and wont scratch your car, it is high quality made in usa you can tell the quality as soon as you open it.
Conswish the cable was a little longer because you have to use an extension anytime you use this.

Just purchased the Sidekick and must say I am impressed. For such a small and light unit, it packs quite a powerful blast. I would recommend this to anyone.
Pros- Light - Powerful blowing power
Cons- The power cord on it is ridiculously short. About a foot long. I understand it had to be plugged to an extension cord, but come on, it barelly has enough leght to do the dictonnection protection knot.

I bought this product and am very happy with its performance. Works really well drying hoods and windshields before water spots form. And does a great job blow-drying complex rims. The short cord is a good thing because it does take the connection point off the drive way and away from the water.
ProsLight weight and powerful for the money.
ConsSupplied Wide diffuser useless.

I haven't as yet tried it for the purpose it was designed for. I'll comment on that when I have used it.

ConsPower cord to short.
Makes drying much easier.

This is a very powerful unit for it's size and with a microfiber drying towel, I can dry a car completely in about 10 minutes. I'm also looking forward to my next engine detail for the improved drying this unit will provide in the many places where water is held in place.
ProsEasy to hold. Very powerful for the size. The attachments are just what's needed. Very nicely priced. The unit appears to be very well made.
ConsNone so far.
Great product for a great price

This item is great to supplement your existing detailing products. If you live in an area with hard water, you may find that after drying, it will still leave water spots. This product isn't designed to remove all water after washing. It works great for removing water out of the nooks and crannies, but if I'm trying to dry an entire panel, then the water spots remain. I was looking for a way to avoid having to hand dry the entire car after washing, but I may have to resort back to it. I will probably still use the Blaster to get the water out from the hard to reach areas and hand dry the rest of the panels.
It's a blast!

This is advertised as a motorcycle dryer, but after pouring over the features and prices of the big dryer and/or vacuum units I decided to give this a try on my roadster. After all, it isn't that much bigger than a mc and fewer nooks and crannies. It works as advertised. Blows a strong, warm blast of air and will easily blow excess water out of any seams...i.e. by windows, between panels, wheel spokes, mirrors, etc. It's not quite enough to completely dry the vehicle fast enough without water spotting, but with a mf waffle in the other hand, works great. I think if I had used my California blade and/or gone over with a waffle cloth first, it would have finished it off perfectly. Next time.
ProsSolidly built, easy to hold and operate. Small size allows you to move around the vehicle quickly. Very strong warm air blast, especially with the pointed attachment. Reasonable price for a quality tool.
ConsNone, really. Some have complained about the short cord (just a few inches). But I actually found that was a pro, because it kept the cord connection point up and away from the wet ground and allowed me to use a very long extension that was connected far away from the wash site.
Best $80 I ever spent

Very powerful and easy to use. The blower and a waffle weave is all I use to completely dry a car with no drips.
ProsEasy to control and powerful

What a powerful little blower!
February 22, 2014
I used to blow dry my car with an electric blower and it was bulky and it was very loud. The Sidekick was much quieter and I could get at the small cracks and gaps better and more accurate than the Electric Blower because of the Sidekicks size. Now I use that to blow dry about 65-75% of my car when I am in the drying process after a wash. What a great little blower. This should be in everyone's arsenal especially if you are drying your car.
ProsMuch easier to use than an electric leaf blower. Much more quiet and more accurate.
ConsThe power cord is really short. Must use a longer extension cord just to get around the entire car.
