The vac kit truly doesn't see much use. It's too small and slow to do any real volume. Kinda handy to suck a couple leaves out from under bushes in beds. But I won't be buying another.

On most any small property the handheld is my go to. Some little jobs are done before most guys would have their backpack started and strapped on.

There's a SH85C locally I saw on Craigslist for $125. The thing looks brand new. Maybe if I can get him to come down I'll have a winner.......
Ive got one, mine might be a sh86, I use it to vacumn hedge clippings out of pine straw, and a back up blower. Its a pos for me, it has poor vacumn and Ive replaced the bag at the cost of 60$ and at least 8 blades at 18$ each, last summer the muffler fell off and the bolts were broke off in the cylinder housing, and theres basically jb weld holding the muffler on. The unit is 5 years old.
Has a handheld blower its not all that great eighter. I dont know about the kombi blower because Ive never tried one.
