Ok, so now i know that answer. Answer is,

SADAR's act as repositories only. They only handle the distrabutions of updates and DAT's.

Agent Handlers act as a mini Epo by managing the ASCI request for policies, wake-ups, DAT's, and updates. They cash that data needed for the request and then send it to the client. Additionaly, they can act as load balancers or be configured to work with thrid party load balancers. There are a few more attributes to them but i think you get the picture.  Yes you can use handlers and SADARS in the same network however, in my opinion, if you are going to use Agent handlers, there is no need to use SADARS.
