Item no.: XMC940020
A 115cm diameter MDF base is fitted with a tough vinyl underskirt, non-slip upper surface, sturdy support handles and PVC rim buffer to provide a hovercraft platform which can easily support a student or adult in a ‘friction free’ environment. The hovercraft can be powered by the High Powered Blower (XDS 170 050) or by a battery powered leaf-blower which has the advantage of no mains cable but limited time, typically 15min max per charge. The High Powered Blower includes all hoses and adaptors required. If the Leaf Blower option is chosen the hose and adaptor pack should be purchased as well.
