I am looking at buying a new blower/vac. I am looking at a echo ES-250, a Stihl SH 56-CE, and a Husqvarna 125 BVx. I will be using it on a 1/3 acre lot. Any reccomendations?
Thanks

If you're serious about a blower/vac, get the SH86. It's worth the difference in price. The 56 is listed by Stihl as a homescaper model, while the 86 is listed as commercial duty. I have the SH 85, and my neighbor bought the BG55 and added the vac kit later. There is a noticable difference in performance bewteen the two.
