Thanks for the pictures, that looks like an interesting blade, I'm not sure how it works, I assume you walk forward or backwards like the echo? I looks like it will cut a nice tapered edge, and has alot less drag then the echo one, I'll be getting one as soon as I can, I love nice edges but its alot of work, especially in the spring. Thanks again for the nice pictures TriCity.

The more I look at those pics the more I wonder how it cuts the edge, does it cut a straight edge? or tapered? I can't quite figure it out by looking at the pictures, its much different then the echo, any info would help. My dealer has the prices now on their website, but its not on the stihl canada site, which is kinda weird.

Lol it's not even on any european stihl site which makes it even more weird, considering stihl is from germany. Anyway, asked my dealer about it and i'll have more news on monday.

I have the Echo (only piece of Echo equipment I own) and we barely use it due to weather conditions and clogging. Only good if very dry. I would be willing to try this one if it performed DRASTICALLY different. Very curious about this blade.

Will they have a stand alone unit for the pros or do we only get the homeowner Kombi unit?

Kombi isn't homeowner grade, its just their new way of making attachments, but you can put the head on any stihl straight shaft. I have a non-kombi as just use the attachments and store the shafts, everntually will get a kombi, they help keep the dirt away from the power head when changing attachments.

Why would the kombi be a homeowner unit? We have a few 130's since 3 years and those are used almost every day and they hold up perfect.

I've always looked at them as a homeowner unit as I wouldn't want to be changing things around or waiting for an employee to finish trimming so I can use the engine to run the edger. I also have never seen a larger landscaping firm use a split shaft machine. There's nothing wrong with running them just not my preference. I actually have an FS56 engine running a tiller head made for a yard boss tiller. It works great for mixing soil with compost and fluffing old mulch.
