    I'm going to start up a small residential business for the summer and was going to be in the market for a blower and a weedeater. Knowing how many products are nowadays, I thought there's a chance that someone makes an "all in one" type of package. What should I consider for such a combination?

    There are split boom trimmers that have a blower attachment. But, I wouldn't reccomend it because if your power head is broken you have no backup. If you are just starting out and are looking @ small lots; then a good handheld blower (stihl) would be a good one. I also have to say get all commercial equip NEVER buy homeowner. I USE to buy that homeowner **** but, I found out it's just cheaper to buy the good stuff in the beginning and not have to replace it. If you have a lot of startimg out money then just buy a backpack blower it will be worth it.

    Hope this helps, :) :)

    Definately try for a good backpack blower, I hear Redmax is really awesome. Never have tried one though.
