Best hand held gas powered blower/vac?

I currently have a Crapsman gas powered hand held blower/vac and as most Sears products are it's a piece of sh*t! Was wondering whats the best blower/vac combination in the gas powered type?

Does Sthil make a handheld blower/vac combo?

Are you looking for a good backpack blower? Asking your question will get you the regular answers, each person giving the thumbs up for their product of choice, many time without and experance with the other brands. I was like that, I always gave the answer "Sthil ", no more!

I now own the following blowers:

Red Max EB7000
Shindiawia EB630
Sthil BR400

Of the 3, I like the Shin 630 the best, power, nice straps, power, flex tube, power, easy start. and did I mention it has a lot of POWER! I just got the redMax and it differs little from the Shin, the BR400 is the weakest of the three, by far!

Me & my cousin often try to shoot each others hat of at the trailer with the blowers, I win because I have the 630, since we now have the 7000 my record may fall..

Stihl BG 75 hand held works pretty well for us. well balanced and power for a hand held. Shindaiwa hand held pretty good, easy starting,low db's, but has a mind of it's own from centrifucal force caused by spinning impelor. You must fight it a bit to point in the direction you want it to blow. Other than that it's pretty good.

I WOULD SUGGEST A POULAN PRO. also change your mix to echo50-1 and high octane.this machine really does put out for a hand held.make sure your mix is exact and good luck. later

Blower/vac combo

Keep in mind I'm looking for a blower/vac combo, just not a blower
