Double K Challengair 850 Stand Dryer for Grooming

Please note: There are severe backorders at the moment with all Double K Products. Please be ready to wait up to 6-8 weeks for all new orders for the Double K 850.

The Double K CHALLENGAIR 850 High Velocity Stand Dryer is the most effective and versatile dryer on the market. The CHALLENGAIR 850 has no heating element due to the “flow‑thru” motor configuration. The air is warmed by the operational heat of the motor, which saves electricity and produces heat up to 45 degrees above room temperature.

The high velocity air in concert with the “Air Sweep” nozzle will blow the water from the animals' coat and dry them faster. The CHALLENGAIR 850 Animal Dryer offers great versatility using the assorted nozzles for the desired effect. The stand model can function as a conventional “Fluff” dryer, forced air dryer or cage dryer at the operator's discretion.

    Works well although not quite what I wanted.

    The fluff blower works well on the switch down setting as an adjustable fluffer or hose dryer. However when it is switched so that both hoses are on at once it is not adjustable so your top fluffer is on full blast like a wind tunnel and the bottom hose barley blows at all. I was hoping to be able to have the fluffer on low for the face while using the hose for the body however it does not work well for this setup. You can plug the extra hose into the fluffing tube and use it as your hose dryer then take it out to use the fluffing feature and that does work really well. Its is a good dryer just not quite what I was looking for.
