The Dyson Airblade AB04 has been discontinued and replaced by the new and improved Dyson AB14. ProDryers will ship the new AB14. We have kept the AB04 visible on our website because many of our shoppers are still looking for the Dyson AB04 or are confused by the change in model numbers. The AB14 is 50% quieter than the AB04 and faster at 420 MPH vs. the old 400 MPH. The new V4 digital motor is much improved in the all new AB14.
The Dyson digital motor V4 was seven years in the making - it's one of the world's smallest fully-integrated 1400W motors. It's the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in 28 liters of air a second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 12 seconds.
This long-life, energy-efficient motor is digitally switched at 6,100 times per second, making the high compression fan spin 92,000 times a minute. There are only three moving parts, so there are no slip rings or carbon brushes to wear down.
