Alright, so its time for a new addition to my equipment. I am looking at getting an extended reach hedge trimmer. Which one one you go with the HL 100 (135) or the KM110 with the 135 degree hedge trimmer attachment. They are the same price.

Thanks!

I have the km110 with the hedge trimming attatchment. It rotates 135 degrees. It's definately not made for trimming small bushes! It gets heavy after about 10 minutes of holding up in the air trimming stuff. It's a great machine and makes it quick on the taller shrubs. I paid 615.00 for it with an extension shaft for those even harder to reach spots. If you buy it, you won't be dissapointed. The new stihl 4 mixes are pretty cool!

If you get the Kombi motor, you can add a chainsaw, tiller, blower, another string trimmer, etc. I love my KM 90

I use mine as an everyday stringer trimmer and extended reach hedge trimmer (I have the extra 3 ft extension also) when I need it. I also have the chain saw attachment that I use all the time. Comes in really handy for trimming shooting lanes for deer stands. I'm looking at getting a tiller for it eventually. I don't have one, but I tried the blower at my dealer and it's pretty powerful for as small as it is. It will surprise you.
