  • Challengeair Airmax

    I think I am in love! I just got it today and tried it on my own lab, he went from roughly toweled down to just a damp in about 3 minutes...no exaggeration! I used the small concentrator nozzle first, to blast off the majority of water, then the flat head (just cuz it looked cool) to run back and forth. I finished his ears with no nozzle on. All in all, he took me maybe 8 - 10 minutes total. Airmax, where have you been all my life, Darling????

          Ya Damienono, you are the one who made me decide to finally get it! I was anxious to hear how you liked it. When you said it was great, I ran to Ryans! Today, I groomed a lab/dane mix with weird "waxy" hairs. She took longer than I wanted to dry, but still a lot less than with my old dryer. I dried a German Sheperd with lots of undercoat in about 20 minutes or a little more, but he was sooo wiggly. Still, I am so pleased with it. I got a sample of Grimenator with mine...shoulda used it on the waxy dog!

                What is the difference between the K9-II and the Airmax as far as how well they work? I have a K9-II and love it...Thanks-

                  I have heard from others that the Airmax is quieter. Don't know for sure.

                    I just ordered my new dryer. I decided to go with the Air Force Master Blaster. I hope I did the right thing!!

                      There are some who put the drier in a cooler. Cut a hole in one end for the filter and another one in the other end for the hose to exit and you have a ready-made, insulated box that will help preserve your hearing! I have never used either one for a long period of time but they both seem loud to me after the two I have. (Hanvey Hi-V Gold and Romani Junior)

                        My Airmax is a loud soft whoooshing noise if that makes sense, it is not high pitched...I don't think it's really bad at all. All my doggies get ear plugs anyhow, and now I need a pair for when I use the concentrator nozzle...when it is close to the dog, it does get pitchy.

                          I like that idea. I store mine under my table, and I don't think a cooler will fit there, but I may try to figure something out.

                            Great idea!

                            I had heard of building a box for the dryer, but I had never heard of putting it in a cooler! That is soo much better, plus better insulated! Do you need to put a few holes in the cooler so the dryer doesn't overheat in there?

                              You would have to cut a hole in the end where the filter is. and a hole in the other end for the hose.
