    Has anyone tried the new blower attachment Stihl has created this year for some of the 4 mix trimmers. It is supposed to have 559 cfm. It's pictured below.

    Looks pretty ********. 559 CFM sure is alot though.

    I saw one sat in the shop....I didnt get it off the rack but it doesnt look like it would be comfy to use....I wonder what advantage it has over a regular blower???

    How about that you dont need a blower if you have a KM series powerhead? I have looked at them and they are supposed to be more powerful then a BG85.

    I have one for my KM 110 R. It works well, use the shoulder strap, and use one hand from there, the only blower I now use, it is true the 559 cfm, it will blow caked on dirt from sidewalks no problem.

    That might be nice for guys with the Kombi; they maybe don't need to carry the backpack everywhere.

    Looks awful hard to use unless you're doing the homeowner style "blow it into the street". I see a lot of homeowners using those type of devices in the lower income neighborhood I work in.

    Boy I can't believe no one figured it out yet. In the areas where they have a band on backpack and hand held leaf blowers. This is the perfect solution. As it technically isn't a leaf blower. Its a wind tube.

    I guess pretty soon you won't even be able to enjoy a nice fart without somebody raising a stink about it. Tony
    Unusual blower, uh, windtube. btw
