According to Stil's info on their site the BG KM blower delivers 121-157 MPH. The BG86 will deliver from 154-190 MPH and from 359-459 CFM depending on whether you use the flat or round nozzles. They don't show CFM for the KM blower.
I'm sure you're right, but I was just going off of this thread on here http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=376857
I'll take a look tomorrow when I'm there and see for myself I guess.
There's a SH85C locally I saw on Craigslist for $125. The thing looks brand new. Maybe if I can get him to come down I'll have a winner.......
