Has anyone tried the new blower attachment Stihl has created this year for some of the 4 mix trimmers. It is supposed to have 559 cfm. It's pictured below.

Looks pretty ******ed. 559 CFM sure is alot though.

I saw one sat in the shop....I didnt get it off the rack but it doesnt look like it would be comfy to use....I wonder what advantage it has over a regular blower???

How about that you dont need a blower if you have a KM series powerhead? I have looked at them and they are supposed to be more powerful then a BG85.

I have one for my KM 110 R. It works well, use the shoulder strap, and use one hand from there, the only blower I now use, it is true the 559 cfm, it will blow caked on dirt from sidewalks no problem.

That might be nice for guys with the Kombi; they maybe don't need to carry the backpack everywhere.

Looks awful hard to use unless you're doing the homeowner style "blow it into the street". I see a lot of homeowners using those type of devices in the lower income neighborhood I work in.

Boy I can't believe no one figured it out yet. In the areas where they have a band on backpack and hand held leaf blowers. This is the perfect solution. As it technically isn't a leaf blower. Its a wind tube.

I guess pretty soon you won't even be able to enjoy a nice fart without somebody raising a stink about it. Tony
Unusual blower, uh, windtube. btw

Now that IS funny!

Maybe they'll come up with a Kombi backpack trimmer next.

know this is an old thread but I picked one of these up today. The plastic outer body of my BR600 broke yesterday so I left it with the dealer to see what they could do with it. In the meantime I TRIED using my SH 85 as a handheld blower but after using the 600 so long, the handheld just just doesn't cut it. With this kombi blower, WOW...all I can say. It won't replace the 600, but it IS a worthy backup. Money well spent!

I guess this is sorta like a line of attachments like the Echo PAS? Anyway is it easy to change the end attachments and are the shaft contained so they don't fall out like on Echo? On Echo it is easy to mess something up when sliding a tool on.

Well to be honest it is really easy to change....it will only go one way. Basically if you mess this up you should be a Walmart cashier not an LCO:)

I've got one that I use on my KM130 Combi. It seems to blow pretty well. One advantage over a hand-held is you have a shoulder strap. I think it could have been made a bit more robust. The plastic body is quite thin-walled, and I can see it getting cracked if chucked about carelessly. Not that I'd ever do that!
