Blower/VAC - Stihl BG65

    I have a Stihl BG65 blower and love it. I am now in real need of something to serve as a trash vac on a new commercial job. If I buy the vac kit for it, will I be happy?? I am concerned about it plugging up if you happen to suck up a cup lid or something. I know it will work ok for cig butts but will it work ok for the shreded paper confetti you create when you miss a cig package and mow it??

    Is there anything better???

    I have the BG75 and can pick up most all small paper and cig butts. The biggest thing I will pick up is a cigarette pack. They come in very handy.

    Spend the extra dollars and get a BG85. They go well.

    Thanks to all for the advice. I bought the vac kit for the 65 today and I am really pleased with how great it works. The bad news is now I want to buy another blower so I don't have to change it back and forth.

    Does a guy ever have enough toys??
