Sure, leaf blowers and compressed air guns are great at moving dust off a
surface, but why not use a vacuum and contain all the dust? A decent one
that won't howl your ears off costs about $100. I've probably got about
$130 in my WD1450 with filter bags and diffuser (Ridgid calls it a
muffler... but it only makes things a little quieter.)
The blowers are great at getting dust that collects under cabinets,
stationary machinery, or anything that a broom or vacuum wand would not
easily get close to. I blow my shop out with a leaf blower about once a
year, to get that stuff that you always miss or cant reach with a vac
wand. Before blowing however I do sweep into piles and use my DC to
suck up those poles.
