I was leaning toward the EGO 56V 650 CFM until I clicked on the link and saw $50 off the Greenworks. BUT my wife just infromed me we belong to BJs and not COSTCO. Not sure how much to join but will probably eat up the $50 offer?

I do wax therapy every couple of months. I am due soon and looking forward to it. Found a fantastic carnauba wax called Zymol. You keep it in the fridge between uses, and apply it with your hands. Very therapeutic.

I use Zymol wax as well for a nice deep shine but in the summer heat here in Texas, it does not last long. It served me well for many years.I had to switch to synthetic "waxes" for my daily.

Update

Running on ‘Turbo’ setting, the battery is good for one dry - about 10 minutes before the power diminishes - and then needs to be recharged. Good thing it comes with two of them.

It really does save a LOT of time and effort, and furthermore, it blasts most of the water out of the crevices, negating the dreaded after wash and dry water spots. I just waxed her today. We’ll see at the next wash how much easier the drying process will be.

Waxed her on Monday last. Washed her today and the water FLEW off. Barely had to use the towel at all.
