Title: Stihl M55 power broom mini tiller
Post by: Cut4fun . on December 06, 2017, 04:18:54 pm
Stihl 55 yard boss. Well broke down and just got one with power broom attachment too.

Wife was wanting me to look into a wheel kit for my echo PAS 280 power broom to use for moving apples. It moved the apples etc but was alot of work carrying it back forth.

So broke down and bought this with wheel kit and weight kit hoping she will be able to use it without me having to do it for her. ;)

If it is even close to the power of the PAS 280 I have with power sweeper I will be surprised.

Got a good laugh yesterday working on the M55. Remembered the guy said he always pulled toward him removing gravel when the paddles were on it. I told the wife that aint right. ;) Well he never knew to flip the geardrive 180 degree for the broom LOL. Got the echo and stihl ready to go now. Wife was please to have one with wheel kit now to use too.

Just used the powerbroom on the M55.  No comparison to the echo 280 powerbroom set up I bought last year.   But if the stihl M55 was what you had it does the job. Just lot slower and way less power IMHO.

No power shortage with my Stihl power broom, Lol.
I put my HT75 polesaw power head on a Stihl bristle broom. So much power I had to adjust it down to half throttle.  Should of had one of these years ago in my tree service. Probably would have retained alot of groundmen. Cleanup is like a day off now.

IMO they put the under powered homeowner trimmer motor on it.  Like to have seen a pro version offered.  But wife like it all that matters.
I get to use my beast of a power paddle echo 280.  ;)
