A little workhorse dryer at a great price. This is a fluff dryer, also called a stand dryer - but see note below about the stand before you buy (note: this is the dryer without stand).
Use for drying start to finish for sensitive / anxious pups, for smaller breeds and lighter coats, or for finishing and fluff drying after using a velocity dryer first for all coat types. Popular for the little guys but rated for all breeds.
Low to mid air force range with 5 air speeds and 5 heat settings. Heat controlled independently from air speed for help with straightening. LCD display panel shows speed setting, heat setting, average ambient temperature, and hours used.

The Vortex 5 gets it names from offering 5 air force (or air speed) settings, and 5 heat settings, able to be controlled independently, giving you the option of low speed and high heat if desired.
The Vortex 5 dryer can be purchased either by itself (dryer only), or as a set with dryer plus stand. The stand is not available for purchase by itself.
On low the noise level is around 79dB (a running shower is around 70dB for comparison). The dryer by itself comes with a flexible hose (x1) and nozzles (x2) included. You can also purchase a hands-free hose by itself, or when you buy the dryer plus stand, you get the dryer, flexible hose, 2 nozzles, rigid hands-free hose, and stand all included.
Note this is for the dryer by itself, with flexible hose and nozzles, without stand or hands-free hose.
Power adjustable up to 2,200W and maximum wind velocity up to 50 m/sec. Heat adjustable up to 60C (note average heat varies based on ambient air temperature). The LCD display panel shows average temperature and keeps track of working hours.
This is a top seller due to the benefit of separate heat and air speed settings. Particularly popular to use with the air flow turned down for anxious dogs.
Max speed: ~ 150CFM
Blow force: ~ 48 m/s
Max power: 2,200W
Shipping: If you order a mix of products with your dryer (eg. table, clipper, shampoo, dryer), smaller items may be sent by courier with larger items shipped separately. You'll see two (or more) tracking numbers for your order if sent separately. Please note that tables / dryers may take 1 to 2 extra days to arrive.
Looking after your dryer
To clean the filter > Unscrew the black knob in the centre of the back panel of the dryer. The back panel will release and you can easily remove and clean the filter pad. Quick-clean daily and thoroughly blow-clean weekly to prevent fur getting in to the motor over time. Regular removal of hair build-up from the filter is very important to extend the life of your dryer, and avoid damage to the motor.
The carbon brushes (2 per motor) will need replacing after a few hundred hours of use. Carbon brushes last an average of 300 to 600 hours depending on the dryer's motor, frequency of use, speeds and heat settings used. In our experience Vortex 5 dryers are closer to the 300 hour end of that range, but carbon brush wear hours are a guide only and brushes may be replacing more or less frequently. Spare brushes are available.
