Wondering if anybody has tried this, or knows if it will work. Will the new Echo bed edger blade (BRD-280) fit on a Stihl stick edger? I like the new Echo blade, but already have a Stihl Kombi with straight shaft edger. I'd like to just put on the Echo bed edging blade onto the Stihl, if it will fit. Anybody know?

Found the blade here:

Thanks!

No, the attachments are different. Echo is a plain square male female type thing, while Stihl has a couple of wire clips next to the square thing. They aren't compatible.

Echo, John Deere, Ryobi are compatible with each other usually.
