Grandaddy® Force Dryer

(5 customer reviews)


Lead time for units and dryers, depending on the options selected is typically 7-14 business before shipping followed by up to 7 days in transit.

The Grandaddy® force dryer is capable of 248 CFM (cubic feet per minute) and 56,000 FPM (feet per minute) of air movement with its nozzle attached and comes standard with a solid-state variable speed controller. This feature enables the Grandaddy® to go from whisper quiet to full force allowing the user to find a suitable speed for even the most finicky of pets.





The interior of the Grandaddy ® is lined with acoustical foam for optimum noise reduction. This two stage filtration dryer is equipped with two (2) 2.5 peak H.P. UL listed, two-stage double ball bearing motors—giving it the power you need to get the job done. A 1-1/2″ x 10 ft. molded wire-reinforced hose is included. Non-skid tabs on bottom keep the dryer in place; however, optional wheels are available. The variable speed control can also be box mounted separately from the unit—giving the user remote access. Powder coated steel cabinet reduces the risk of scratches and other wear issues. PLEASE NOTE: MINIMUM 20AMP DEDICATED CIRCUIT REQUIRED, 30AMP DEDICATED CIRCUIT RECOMMENDED TO SUPPORT THIS DRYER.

No heating elements are used in these dryers, however, they will add 50-60 degrees to the temperature of the air in the room.

    I just can’t be without my granddaddy dryer. It’s the best best dryer I have ever owned and will stick with it always! You won’t be disappointed with this dryer. It has the power for great blow outs and fast drying. My day goes smoother with it.

  2. Mary S. Kastner/Village Groomer

    Over the years I have owned two Granddaddys and have been very pleased with them. Dries pets quickly with the ability to turn down the velocity when starting out young puppies with their first dryer experience.
