    This weekend I was roofing my folks house and decided to use the Stihl blower to blow off all ths shingles, dust, and nails. Worked like a charm. It took ten minutes to sweep off part of the roof and didn't even look like I had touched it. The blower only took a few minutes. Just curious if any else has ever tried this.

    no way you'll catch me on a roof with a BP blower unless its flat or a 2-4 pitch.

    other uses? air-drying the car/truck after a wash. cleaning out the garage.

    Blower is great at cleaning clippings off most hedges after cutting them.
