Who knew so many people used blowers to float balls!  Here I was thinking everyone used leaf blowers for... well, leaves. 

All this talk about air displacement and exit velocity doesn't mean much unless you have freakishly mutated trees with massive leaves or are repurposing your leaf blower for some other use.

Don't forget the pros :D. And yes, I always thought it might be fun to turn a leaf blower into a thruster for a sying flute... err. flying suit. :D

The ball floating demo, as posted by Kite Army in the OP's thread, is to demonstrate how much CFPM is pushed through each blower and how long the battery lasts.  It's a pretty telling demo, IMHO.
