    I've too have used it for drying things.
    I've also seen snowmobile grass drag racers use them to cool their clutches after a run although they usually have handheld.
    Fun for chasing the wife around the yard (gets a raised eyebrow from the neighbors).
    I'm considering trying it for light snows, and in place of a snow brush, but I don't know if it will work very good, and how goofy will i look?

    lol is she wearing a skirt when u chase her?

    I have used it for light snow and its fine. What i really like is how clean i can get steps. I have been looked at while using my BP in the winter but at least I wasn't using a shovel and breaking my back!

    When you live in Wisconsin, you use anything for snow removal. Who cares what you look like? I think you look smart compared to the guy with the shovel. I'm also told the fire department uses there Red Max for putting out fires!

    the key to using a BP for snow removal is to clean the snow when it's no higher then 2" other wise it'll be blowing back on u and take a long time to clean.If ur just doing steps and the snow is light u can go higher like 4-6"

    I used it when burning leaves to keep the fire going. You just have to stay back a little.

    When I had my great dane I used it to dry him off after giving him a bath. Becareful around his ears and face. My dog loved it, got him dry fast.
