    I have debating between getting the Stihl BG 85 D handheld blower and the Stihl BR 340 backpack blower. Right now I only need the blower for blowing grass off of sidewalks of some small commercial accounts but i will probably need the backpack blower in the fall for cleanups. The only reason I am still considering the handheld is because of the attatchment for gutter cleaning. Does stihl not have a gutter cleaning attatchment for the backpack blowers, I coudn't find one? Right now funds limit me to only selecting one. Also is gutter cleaning even very profitable? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Te BG 55 and BG 85 are the same engine, there is a few creature comforts that are different but as far as air speeds are concerned they will put out the same velocity by changing the tube, though the more open tube will move more volume of air.
