Back to your kombi vs individual tool comparison.
The 110 is a much more capable motor than the 90 for the edger. I had an FC85 and it was just barely able to suit my needs. KM110 drives the straight shaft edger attachment as fast as I can walk.
Cons to the kombi. Your setup as quoted only has one powerhead. If you have one worker, that'll work, until you need service, and then you're completely down.
Pros to the kombi. If you change your quote to include two powerheads, you'll have a spare motor for EVERYTHING.
Without the kombi, if your edger needs service, you'd have to make due with the string, etc.
I have the 2 stroke homeowners and 2 110 power heads. All of them are very tempermental. Theres several threds about their starting problems.
I agree that having 2 power heads is a must, the attachments are very durable and realible.
