I use the same Makita blower as in the above video. It's amazing. It easily blows up multiple raft, cats, IKs, etc on a single charge. Disclaimer: I still top off with a hand pump.



I just emailed the person that makes the valve adapter for the Makita (also as seen in the video) and hopefully will be picking one of those up soon. That should eliminate the poor seal from the leaf blower to the valve.

A poly pipe slip on splice works perfect. I use a heat gun to put a clear piece of Vinyl tubing on the end that goes in the valve. Just like the end of Carlson pumps.

Dewalt's website shows 3 nozzle attachments potentially eliminating the tight seal concern.

Decisions decisions. Perhaps I'll drop hints that this is a good father's day idea.

A couple of pluses for the leaf blower. You can use it to dry your boat and you can blow off the ramp before you drop and roll it.

Mtn Viking, thanks for the info on the adapter. I have been thinking that someone should invent something like that. I like the Makita blower because it is small, but I have it because it fits my battery system. Pirate, if you have dewalt batteries, you should go with that. It is a real pain to start using multiple battery systems. Fortunately, you have two blower choices that will work.

The guy who makes the adapter has his email on the video. Remove AT to email him. pondomotoATgmail.com. I got mine in 2 days from Calif.

I literally bought a trailer because I was tired of this. Before that I just cut the bottom off a soda bottle duck taped it to a black and decker leaf blower and just tapped the mouth to fit. Worked great.
