    Have any of you purchased the vaccum accessory for the Stihl 340 backpack blower? I'm considering it for my own personal use around the house, but I'm wondering how it works.

    The dealer said it sucked and they've never sold one? True or False?

    I would think that the contrary is true...they didn't sell because they didn't suck :D

    I had a vaccuum attachment for a handheld blower. It worked, but not that well. The bag wood fill up real quick. The dust from the leaves would blow out rigt next to you. I sold the thing.

    Vac attachments for BP blowers are awful. This is for all BPs, not just Stihl's. Your dealer was right on the mark. They use a venturi system, and won't won't do very well on anything other than cig butts. Money better spent would be a handheld blower/vac.
