If you pull the set screws, and remove the short Kombi shaft. The attachments themselves are the same. If Stihl was a bit more open about that, they would sell a lot more attachments (probably a few less Kombi systems. Takes less than 5 minutes once you've done it. You should probably wipe down the shaft before pulling the gear box to keep "the guts" clean.
I find it a tolerable means to share one power head between several occasional use tools. Wouldn't want to yank the head off my trimmer all the time, but hedge trimmers and pole saw attachments work out fine.
