Does anyone use a hand held blower?
i do, echo pb 200 (the es 230 in my signiture should be the pb200) thats all i have for blowers! Love it though!
all ours our stihl bg85
So far I only use the Stihl 85 but plan on getting a backpack this fall for some major leaf cleanup jobs I've got.
I bought my crew a backpack. They used it once or twice then hung it up in the van. I guess they like the handhelds better.
Only backpacks for us...
459 at the tube...however, I bought a Stihl BR 600 for cleanups and think it is awesome...both BPs and HH serve their purposes in different applications...if I want to quickly blow off a small drive way, I get the HH...If I have a huge driveway and sidewalk, a yard full of pinecones the customer wants picked up and their lawn manicured, I use the BP...I knew it was a matter of time before Stihl got their backpack up to par with the other companies...they can only get better from here on out...
Consider the Echo PB210 they are VERY reliable. And don't get a backpack unless you absolutely need them, they are heavy and use more GAS.
I gladly took it back to HD and went and bought me a Stihl BG85 with much more power...
