I have the stihl kombi and so far it has been very excellent. i have the 135 degree articulating attatchment and the extension, so can reach the tops of large jobs. it can cut things easily 3/4 inch and even up to 1.25 or more inches if i leave it there(not reccomended). plus with the kombi you can have alot of other attatchments. i have the km 130 R

Just bought that exact set-up yesterday. Been using a buddies for the last few years and decided to go ahead and get one.

Very versatile unit with all the attachments.My dealer told me they might be coming out with a bed edger sometime soon.

Trimmer

I have a Sthil #45 and it has plenty of power and am very happy with it and it is very light to handel 24" bar is better than the 18" better balance.

I added an Echo HC-150 last year because I wanted something smaller and lighter than my Shindaiwa 30 incher. It's been trouble free so far. It's a pretty basic, no frills unit but gets the job done. My dealer warned me that the gearbox is kind of "light" and to not abuse it and be sure to keep it greased. I think it was $279 or something in that range.

I think the Echo HC 150 is a good trimmer for the money, which is what the OP asked for. Perhaps you can elaborate on your opinion of the unit? It's really not very helpfull to just throw out a comment like that without being more specific, at least not to me.
