leaf blower sprinkler blowout

I was wondering if I could use a leaf blower for sprinkler blowout?
I have a blower with 150mph/340cfm top speed, 100mph low speed(dont know cfm, but I figure around 200).

That seems to satisfy the criteria for high volume/low pressure that the big diesel compressors that the professionals use.

I would use the low speed of course, but I was wondering if anyone tried this?

I was looking at the 33 gal 6hp air compressors at sears this weekend and they would be absolutely huge to lug around and take up a lot of space in garage so I was looking at alternatives..

thanks

Leaf blowers can't compress air....you need some type of pressure...
