    Can I just say that I hate leaf blowers! All my neighbors landscapers seem to blow dust and crap around right after washing my beautiful black truck.

    Ban the leaf blower!

    I definitely thought this thread was going to he about how you dry your black truck with a leaf blower, haha.


    Even if your neighbors didn't have leaf blowers, the morning dew will get you in a few hours anyway. The struggle is real for us black truck owners.

    I built my house in the middle of a hayfield so I wouldn't have leaves. I am a carpenter and know what trees do to a house. If you have snow they work great as a snowblower also.:thumbsup:

    Forget the broom for that light snow, the leaf blower is where it's at.

    If that was in my neighborhood I'd throw on my backpack blower and start blowing shit back at the guy.

    I too cannot stand these damn dirty two-strokes! It's impossible for me to keep a vehicle clean when fkn Foolio blows all the crap down in front of my house. :mad: A while back, one of the major automotive magazines, either C&D or M/T, did an experiment measuring how dirty a leaf blower was compared to a car. To be fair they chose the dirtiest vehicle available, which at the time was the Ford Raptor. The leaf blower was 600x dirtier!!! Ban the blower!

    I had a Black Tacoma. It was beautiful, but it wore me out. Clean one minute, dirty the next.
