For fun i looked at some leaf blowers.
Most battery powered blowers were only 60-90 cfm
most electrics around 150cfm
Gas blowers can go as high as 600cfm

1 tiny turbo like the ones put on the tdi's run at 15 lbs boost under load.
I suggest a used Turbo and a rebuild kit for it for anyone considering the electric supercharger.
Save gas
Ride a Mtn bike for errands exercise entertainment and outright fun
