Challengair Airmax® Portable, Dual Motor Forced Air Dryer


• Revolutionary • Two Year Warranty

New Airgonomic Nozzle System included

The Challengair® Airmax® produces warm, high velocity air under pressure to make your animal grooming tasks easier. The Challengair® Airmax® has two brush?type motors and comes in two?speed or variable speed models. One motor supercharges the other, or use just one for air volume and temperature versatility. The powerful motors reduce drying time as high velocity air penetrates even the thickest undercoats.

The Challengair® Airmax® produces heat by a “flow?thru” motor system that warms air as it cools the motors for optimum effectiveness and energy savings. The noise deadening, high impact, service friendly “clamshell” housing is made of molded silicone with sound isolating motor mounts. This results in exceptional quietness. The housing is virtually indestructible and will not rust, dent or crack. Includes convenient “push?on” hose with Double K's Airgonomic Nozzle System: nozzle and nozzle tips designed for easy switching and cool?to?the?touch design. The unique Airgonomic “air sweep nozzle” is designed to blow water off animals' coats in sheets.

The Challengair® Airmax® has dual air filtration that protects motors and shop air quality. Hoses are crushproof and heat resistant.

The variable speed model
with its solid?state variable speed control allows versatile temperature, volume and velocity adjustments. The Challengair® Airmax® two speed model has two temperatures.

Two Powerful Motors
- 123 cubic feet per minute per motor = 246 cubic feet per minute total. The Challengair® Airmax® dryer produces more air due to the aerodynamic housing design and a smooth hose lining, reducing resistance as air moves through the hose, thereby increasing air volume (and velocity).

The Challengair® Airmax® is designed to provide long, reliable service and will retain its beauty much longer than metal dryers. The Challengair® Airmax® is less expensive than comparable dryers, offering you better value. Comes with a two year limited warranty which includes hoses and nozzles. 30 day purchase money back satisfaction guarantee.




PLEASE NOTE-6' Hose is standard.  10' Hose is available.

The Airmax or the Extreme?


Distinctions between the Airmax™ and the Extreme™ dryer models.


The motor/fan assemblies in the two products are different with the Extreme model having more powerful 5.7 inch diameter motor/fan assemblies and the Airmax having less powerful 5.1 inch diameter motor/fan assemblies. It must be understood here that power is defined in this circumstance as motor generated torque. So, while each motor/fan assembly produces approximately 123 CFM free air (on the bench with no resistive elements at sea level) the 5.7 inch unit (Extreme) does so at a much lower speed (22,500 rpm) as compared to the Airmax at approximately 32,000 rpm. The amount of air pressure or vacuum (measured in water lift) that each unit produces in a free air condition and with the resistive elements introduced (dryer housing, filters, hoses, novels etc.) are also roughly equivalent. The primary distinction is that the larger motor fan assemblies (in the Extreme) achieve these objectives without having to work so hard which causes the motor to last longer. The current density at the brush to commutator contact point is substantially higher with the Airmax unit which causes the brushes and commutator to wear more rapidly which requires more frequent brush changes and a parallel reduction in general motor life.


There is a modest increase in practical air volume (measured at the nozzle) for the Extreme over the Airmax and a slight increase in temperature for the Airmax over the Extreme. This causes the units to have roughly equivalent drying capability with the Extreme having a marginal advantage in penetrating dense undercoats and the Airmax having a slight advantage in colder more humid conditions.

Accordingly, the primary distinction between the two products is generally motor related life expectancy. The Extreme does come with a 10 foot hose as opposed to a 6 foot hose and an extra nozzle as well. The Extreme also outweighs the Airmax dryer by several pounds.
