Nope, no part of the brakes remain, some genius decided it was fine without them (not me lol). The new parts are 500 bucks though.

Okay, since my BR 550 crapped out on me last night for good I had to get a blower attachment for the kombi system, and let me tell you, It was worth every single penny. It is comparable to my BR 550 when it was running well. Overall, other than trading my 36 stander for a 50 inch ztr the kombi system is by FAR the best thing I have done for my business. It is a little heavy but one you put the sling on the weight disappears and you just point it where you want with minimal effort. I LOVE THE KOMBI SYSTEM!

Glad to hear it's working well. They look kind of weird...looks like a gas powered upright vacuum to me, but what matters is that it works.

Yeah i got weird looks from neighbors when i picked it out of my truck bed. Also is there a good way to store these things on an open trailer or my truck bed? I dont want them to roll around. Also my dual trimmer racks look soo empty lol only one unit out of 6 slots.

Really? I find it weaker than my BR500, which is considerably weaker than the BR550.
It was a little better than the BG-85 that it replaced though, although I have a KM-110, and I've heard that it is even stronger with the KM-130, so maybe that's why you had a little better results.
I agree that it's worth every penny. It does look silly but it outblows anything handheld.

You bought this with a title (payday) laon? Do yourself a favor and pay that back asap. Do you know the APR on those is over 300%? Guys get wrapped up in them and only pay the interest every month. Its worse than pizzing away money in a casino.

No doubt...risky business, lose a vehicle over a $500 loan.

I know it is risky but it was either that or go out of business. My trimmer, blower and edger all went out within a few hours of each other. It was second hand equipment off craigslist and from the pawn shop. I play on paying it back asap, i get paid bi-weekly so it is a pita.

Never bounce any purchase off a title loan. Your better off going to the bank and getting a personal loan or ask family to front you the money for a week. . No way would I risk losing something of great value over something for 500 bucks.
