So I'm looking for a new blower. The little TroyBilt 4 cycle blower is fine for blowing the driveway off, but it really can't tackle the yard now that we live in the woods. Last year my wife surprised me by getting a service to spray for mosquitoes. It worked great and when they came I noticed that they were using a stihl blower/sprayer thingamabob. We were talking about getting the service again this year, then I found out what it costs!!! Oh boy... So, I'm looking at doing it myself.

So that brings you up to speed, mostly. So, I have two questions, well more than that, but I'll start with two.

Is the SR 450 the machine that I'm looking for? I'd like to be able to spray the bugs and have a capable blower in one package.
Is spraying the bugs something that I should be looking to do myself? Doesn't look too hard, is the bug juice something available to the public?

Thanks for any input that you have, I'm sure I'll have more questions if someone knows anything about this stuff...

Hey nice! I take it you bought it?

Indeed, it did come home with me today. I plan on doing a product review (it's Sthil, so....) and a sort of diary here, so that others that may want to attempt this can follow and input.

I've talked to a lot of people in the business and hopefully have my hands fully in it.

If we could find out how, I would like to compare it to the kombi blower I have for the km 130 r.

THAT is exactly my question, and why I don't already have the Kombi blower. I'd love to see a comparison.

How do you like the blower on the km130? I was eyeballing the attachment today at the JD dealer. It's only 100 bucks.

I just got it Arlen, I have not had a chance to use it yet. I might have a way to test. Please give me a little time to work this out.
