    I have stepped on the tip of my blower so many times that it is an oval shape. Do you think that this is restricting the volume of air comming out by much?

    You've only changed the shape of the tip, the same volume of air is moving through the same size hole. Now if it's squished half shut, yeah, the volume may be less, but it may pick up mph through the smaller opening.

    how about putting a hose clamp around it to hold the shape... and stop stepping on it :)
