I have seen the standarized gatorade bottle (bottom cut out) duct taped to the end of the blower, I have seen 20oz. water bottle's, two litres (in a pich, they lost the gatorade bottle and couldnt find anything else), i have also just pressed the end of the blower to the air inlet.


all work about the same..

Shop vacs are great for the end of the day. There are some electric leaf blowers that also function as vacuums. Those also work well for draining bunkers. I believe Black and Decker makes one.

Of course, a gas blower or two is nice for puffing up bunkers between games. No cord to hassle with. My arsenal includes all three.
