View Full Version : Blower/Vac?

01-17-2004, 01:12 PM
I'm in need of a replacement for my blower/vac...may it's little piston rest in ....pieces.....I really haven't looked at these in years but since this one recently expired now I'm looking. I've got several properties with walkouts, window wells and such that require a vac/blower combo. My trimmers and such are Sthil...I like their design, safety features and reliability. The only thing I don't like about them is the dealer I have gone through.....most unhappy son-of-a-whitch I have EVER met!! So what have you used... pros and cons. Comments and questions welcomed. Thank you for any input.;)

Everything I use, with the exception of the mowers, is Stihl brand. I love them, their durability, and their features... the Stihl blowers won't always start on the first pull, but they work great, and last a long time.... the newest one that I have is the BR420

I have a STHIL SH85 all iuse it for is the vac. It Works really well
mainly use along curbs to pick up grass&cig. butts. &paper.
Also found that i could remove bag&just shread leaves along
chain link fence at a school i mow.
Idont think you would regret buying a STHIL>
